BTS landed their very first Grammy nomination last year for Dynamite. The group was nominated for Best Pop Duo / Group Performance at the 2021 Grammys. However, they lost the award to Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande.
While a video of their immediate reaction was shared on Twitter, a new episode of Bangtan showing the events unfolding before the winner was announced was posted on Wednesday.
While the first half of the video featured the members preparing and recording their Grammy performances, the second half had BTS members RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook preparing for the awards show.
âI couldn’t sleep because something historic could happen today. I’m so nervous and don’t know what to do. Whether we won an award or not, the process of preparing for the Grammys itself was an honor and we got to play, so it was an invaluable experience. My brain is not working now … I don’t know if I will be able to get through the event. Either way, I’ll do my best today, âJungkook said in the video, before the winners were announced.
âI’m calmer right now than I think I’ve ever been for any event. I’m not really expecting anything so I shift a bit because it’s early in the morning. I’m going to have fun and if we win a prize it’s great but even if we don’t, I’m sure there will be a next time. I try to stay positive like this. I’m going to stay calm and have fun, âsaid RM.
Meanwhile, Jin was curious how the other members of BTS would react if they won. “What will your reaction be if we win?” Jin asked J-Hope. â(Shouting) Oh !!! You have to put your hand under your nose and say ‘Oh !!’ Â», Replied the rapper. “I’ll pretend it’s okay,” Jin informed him. âNo, I think you would cry,â J-Hope said.
When asked to RM, the head of BTS said, “I don’t think I will be able to sit still.” However, when the winner was announced, the members of BTS were visibly heartbroken. A few even admitted that they were sad not to have won. The BTS team even tried to cheer them up with a cake. As the BTS members tried to cheer themselves up, they were also concerned about their fans. BTS chief RM admitted at one point that he was worried about them.
