The American Music Awards (AMA’s) were held on November 25 and BTS won Favorite Duo/Group in the Pop/Rock category!
This is the first time a non-English speaking act was nominated for and won the award. They were up against the Jonas Brothers and Panic! At the Disco.
Although BTS was not physically present in the award show, they still shared a heartwarming message for their fans.
BTS has been a group for six and half years, and throughout those years, so many of our dreams somehow manifest into reality. And ARMY, you guys are the ones who make all of this possible.

RM stated that they will continue working hard for ARMYs.
We really couldn’t have done it without your love and support from all over the world. We will try our best to live up to [your love], to strive high and work hard.
BTS even began trending worldwide for their achievement.

Needless to say, fans were extremely proud of them, noting that their hard work definitely paid off.
Seriously though.@BTS_twt, a Korean artist, won Top Group this year for both the BBMAs and AMAs. A music-based award in two major American music awards shows.
Boys, you've come so far, and this is just the beginning.
