This was also BTS’ third year in a row winning Favourite Pop Duo or Group at the AMAs.
The band – made up of Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook – also performed their song, ‘My Universe’ with Coldplay and ‘Butter’, to the joy of the ARMY who posted their reactions to the performance.
Thank you @AMAs! We had the best time performing “Butter🧈” tonight!

In their acceptance speech for Artist of the Year, RM said: “Nobody could have ever bet on the odds of us standing here receiving this award. Except y’all, ARMY. Except y’all.
“Seven boys from Korea, united by a love for music. We met the love and support from all the ARMYs all over the world. This whole thing is a miracle. Seriously, we’ll never take this for granted. Thank you so much.”
Jungkook continued their speech, hinting at the band’s plans for next year before he was jokingly carried away by his older band-member, Jin.
