“It would be nice for the GRAMMYs to have more inclusive diversity like this….”
— John Norris, Music Journalist
While the Grammys have strict guidelines and qualification rules in place for nominations, the critics can’t ignore BTS’s recent global success.
“..You can’t deny the global impact that K-Pop, reggaeton or Latin trap are having in America. “
— Mikey Fresh Music Editor, Vibe
A.R.M.Y is freaking out about the possibility of BTS being nominated, claiming that it is such an honor even to be considered to be in the ceremony.
If Bangtan gets nominated for a damn Grammy, I will never ever ever shut up. I’ll be humble but I will never shut the fuck up about it. Once it gets to Grammy level, bragging rights are off the chart. A simple nomination would show how BIG they truly are. I’m not ready.
