BTS to perform at American Music Awards

Nov 06,2017
Korean boy band BTS will perform at a music awards show in the United States later this month, its Seoul-based agency said Saturday.

BigHit Entertainment said BTS has been invited to perform at the American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Nov. 19. Korean singer PSY performed with MC Hammer in the show in 2012, but the agency said BTS is the first K-pop group to perform at the American Music Awards.

BTS will sing its hit single “DNA” at the 45th edition of the awards show, which will be broadcast live by the ABC network in the U.S.

The American Music Awards are considered one of the top three music awards events of the year along with the Billboard Music Awards and the Grammy Awards. BTS won the Top Social Artist award at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards in May.
