BTS wins two nominations at 2020 Billboard Music Awards

K-pop superstars BTS on Tuesday garnered nominations in two categories — Top Duo/Group and Top Social Artist — for the 2020 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs) set for next month, Billboard announced Tuesday.

BTS will compete with Dan + Shay, Jonas Brothers, Maroon 5 and Panic! At The Disco at this year’s BBMAs scheduled for Oct. 14 (U.S. time), according to Billboard.

The South Korean boy band is vying for its second win in the Top Duo/Group category. If BTS wins again, the band will become the first group or duo to win back-to-back awards in the coveted category since One Direction in 2016.

BTS is also eyeing its fourth-consecutive win in the Top Social Artist race. The group was nominated along with Billie Eilish, Ariana Grande, as well as fellow K-pop acts EXO and GOT7.

Another win by BTS in the category seems likely, as the group has topped Billboard’s weekly Social 50 chart, a measure of an artist’s popularity and engagement on social media, for 197 weeks in a row, the longest streak ever by any musicians.

The group also won four awards — Best Pop, Best Group, Best Choreography and Best K-pop — at MTV’s Video Music Awards last month for “ON,” the lead song for “Map of the Soul: 7” released in February.
