BTS Wins Double at the American Music Awards..."Finale" as a new song.

The group has won two awards at the "American Music Awards" (AMAs), one of the top three music awards ceremonies in the U.S.

BTS was selected as the winners of "Pop/Rock Genre Favorite Duo/Group" and "Favorite Social Artist" at the "2020 American Music Awards" held at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on the 22nd (local time).

The "Pop/Rock Genre Favorite Duo/Group" is a major part of the highly competitive American Music Awards, so the award is significant.

After competing with Jonas Brothers and Maroon 5, BTS won the award for the second consecutive year. BTS is the only non-English-speaking artist to win this award.

Based on the influence and popularity of social media, the company has been selected as the winner of the "Favorite Social Artist" category for three consecutive years since 2018.

Attention is focusing on whether BTS will be able to be nominated for the Grammy Awards, which will be unveiled on the 25th.

BTS won consecutive awards at the American Music Awards and the Billboard Awards, but failed to connect with the Grammy Awards among the top three music awards in the U.S.
