BTS has set the TV television performance debut of the group’s forthcoming single, “Butter,” for the Billboard Music Awards May 23.
The vocal group will perform remotely from Korea on the show, to be communicated on NBC live across time zones in the U.S. at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
“Butter,” the group’s second English-language single, will have been out to general society for little less than three days when the group performs out the song on the Billboard Awards. The single is set to be released at 12 PM ET on May 21.
BTS is nominated in four categories for the 2021 BBMAs: Top Duo/Group, Top Song Sales Artist, Top Social Artist (Fan Voted) and Top Selling Song.
The group has won Top Social Artist throughout the previous four years straight and, given the strength of the BTS Army, is a heavy favorite to make it five. The record-holder for that fan-voted category is Justin Bieber, who won it six years straight from 2011-2016.
The group keep going showed up on the Billboard Music Awards two years prior, playing out its first English-language single, “Dynamite,” also remotely from Korea.
BTS is the third artist declared for an exhibition on the current year’s telecast, following Pink and the Weeknd. Scratch Jonas is set to have.
The two fan-voted categories are open for voting from May 10-21. Different classifications depend simply on data collected for the Billboard graphs from March 21, 2020 through April 3, 2021.
Pink has been reported as recipient of the annual Icon Award, and Drake was simply declared Tuesday morning to get the Artist of the Decade honor.
The Weeknd drives the field for cutthroat distinctions this year with 16 assignments, in front of DaBaby with 11, the late Pop Smoke with 10, and country vocalist Gabby Barrett, who’s up for nine.
