Nov. 24 will now be known by ARMYs as the day that Jin, Suga, J-Hope, RM, Jimin, V, and Jungkook finally earned the recognition they deserved in America due to BTS's 2021 Grammy nomination. Prior to their nomination, RM told Esquire that "I think the Grammys are the last part, like the final part of the whole American journey."

With their nomination for best pop duo/group performance for "Dynamite," BTS has made history as the first K-pop group to be recognized by the award ceremony. This isn't the first time the group have made history at the Grammys. In 2019, they were the first K-pop group to present an award, and in 2020, they were the first K-pop group to perform at the show. Whether they will win is still to be seen as they're up against Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, Bad Bunny, and more. Only time will tell when the show airs on Jan. 31, 2021. Until then, please enjoy V, Jungkook, RM, and Jimin adorably react to their nomination below.
