K-pop boy band BTS won the Billboard Music Award for Top Social Artist and now everyone can just go home. BTS is the first K-pop band to be nominated and invited to the Billboard Music Awards, and the first to win an award. After owning the red carpet and dancing in their seats to The Chainsmokers & Nicki Minaj, it was time for the Top Social Artist award announcement. Fans, known as the BTS Army, were ready in the audience and online. It only took a few seconds for their fans to break the Internet, because that’s what happens when you’re the Top Social Artist. We rounded up the best reactions on social media, and salute boy band fans everywhere for their dedication and ability to scream louder than any other fans on the planet.

The winner was announced, and everyone at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas basically went deaf. 

Their acceptance speech will give you all the feels.

BTS Fans are an actual army, and they made it happen.

One fan declared a world holiday & we support this. 

 Now, everyone is waiting to see if they’ll perform tonight, too.
