Just a couple of minutes earlier than the 2018 American Music Awards formally kicked off on Tuesday evening (Oct. 9), BTS had already scored its first win.
The Okay-pop megagroup snagged the award for Favorite Social Artist, beating out Cardi B, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato and Shawn Mendes.
The win comes after BTS scored the Top Social Artist Award on the 2018 Billboard Music Awards earlier in May. But it doesn’t come as a shock, due to the hardcore help from the group’s ARMY fanbase.
The AMA award is the most recent milestone for BTS, as they lately grew to become the first South Korean musicians to host an American stadium present at its New York City’s Citi Field live performance on Oct. 6.
