South Korean boy group BTS has failed to create history as the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Award went to Lady Gaga with Ariana Grande at the 63rd Grammy Awards held on 15 March 2021. The fans of the Bangtan Boys were hoping that the septet would bring home the first Grammy for the K-pop industry.
There were five contenders for this award: 'UN DIA (ONE DAY)' for J Balvin, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny & Tainy, 'INTENTIONS' for Justin Bieber Featuring Quavo, 'DYNAMITE' for BTS, 'RAIN ON ME' for Lady Gaga with Ariana Grande and 'EXILE' for Taylor Swift Featuring Bon Iver.
In the end, Lady Gaga with Ariana Grande had the last laugh. This has not gone well with the BTS Army which has taken the social media to express their anger against the jury using the hash tag- 'Scammys' #BTSOurGreatestPrize and #LightItUpBTS on Twitter.
The netizens feel that the BTS deserved the award more than Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande.
The disappointed fans have vented out their anger by stating that the love that BTS enjoy from fans across the globe is bigger than any award. Nonetheless, they have appreciated the electrifying performance given by the boy group at the awards ceremony.

Thanh Phương: Somehow I still think BTS's Dynamite deserves a Grammy's award Grimacing face from the rhythm to the music video to the positive message Red heart is that because Grammy is too old-fashioned? After all, what is the criterion to receive the Grammy award?

Bts tus crushes: bts does not need a Grammy the Grammys need bts because they are more submerged than the ptm, while bts continue to break records and give something to talk about, you are only being forgotten, the variety has lost the prestige that this award had.
