The BTS Army is not happy after the K-pop group lost at the 2021 Grammys on Sunday night. Fans took to Twitter to share their disappointment over the loss.

BTS Army Reacts To Group’s Grammys Loss
BTS was nominated in the Pop Duo/Group Performance category for their song “Dynamite.” On Sunday, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande ended up winning the award for their song “Rain on Me.”
Many BTS fans took issue with this result, complaining about the Grammys’ decision to have the group perform at the end of the show without giving them an award.
Fans claimed that the Grammys used BTS to get viewers, even mocking up a fake tweet from the Recording Academy saying just that. Some even accused the Grammys of xenophobia and racism.
“We really want to see ARMY now and I’m sure ARMY are feeling the same emotions that we’re feeling,” BTS told E! News at the awards. “So we’ll be back with even greater music and good performances, even better music. We’ll work hard for this next year as well and then we’ll be back with great music and great performances that you can look forward to.”
BTS Performs At The 2021 Grammys
BTS may not have won a Grammy, but they still delivered an amazing performance during Sunday night’s awards. The group performed their hit song “Dynamite” from South Korea.
The seven members wore colorful suits and showed off their incredible dance moves during the song. The dynamic performance ended on a rooftop, as they literally “set the night alight,” like they sing in the song.
Before their performance, BTS revealed in an interview that they were even more excited to perform at the Grammys than they were to be nominated. “We’re a performance team,” RM explained, calling it “our final dream for this whole journey.”
