K-pop boy band sensation BTS (Bangtan Boys) might be new to you, but they aren’t new to the rest of the world. The nominees for Top Social Artist took over the the Billboard Music Awards show and all they had to do was arrive. As the first K-pop band in Billboard Award Show history to receive a nomination, the seven member boy band rolled up to the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada fresh off a sold out arena tour in the USA. Later in the evening, they also became the first K-pop band to win a Billboard award. With or without the win, they took over the entire award show, and the Internet, simply by stepping out of their vehicle.

BTS fans are a real army, so they arrived early.

When the band arrived, they owned the red carpet, and all they had to do was get out of the car.

They had a good time with Laura Marano.

BTS walked into the venue to sit down, and showed the world they’re bigger than Bey.

Once they got to their seats, they clearly enjoyed Nicki Minaj.

And The Chainsmokers.

BTS Won The Billboard Top Social Artist Award, becoming the first K-pop band in Billboard history to win an award. Oh, and they won with THREE HUNDRED MILLION votes. 

Congrats to the band and their army on the win, proving that the band with the best fans on social media is truly the Top Social Artist.
