BTS won for every category they were nominated in – Favourite pop duo or group, favourite pop song, and the coveted artist of the year award. RM, who accepted the best artist award nervously recalled the time they first performed at the AMAs. It was four years ago, and they performed their hit at that time, “DNA.” He added that they were all nervous and excited at that time but never imagined that they will ever return, and that too, win in every category they were nominated in.

He also thanked the ARMY for the love and support that came from all over the world for the seven of them.
