BTS Receives Three Nominations For 2023 Grammy Awards


November 18, 2022

BTS are nominated for the first time in more than one category.

BTS received three nominations for the 2023 Grammy Awards.

The K-pop stars are vying for the award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group for the third year in a row, and this time they're nominated for their collaboration with Coldplay on 'My Universe'.

BTS are also nominated for Best Music Video for 'Yet to Come (The Most Beautiful Moment)' and for Album of the Year for their appearance on Coldplay's 'Music Of The Spheres'.

This is the first time that BTS has been nominated in more than one category at the Grammy Awards in one year.

BTS was nominated for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with "Dynamite" in 2021 and "Butter" in 2022.

The K-pop group is the only name to have been nominated for three consecutive years in the category since it was introduced as part of the 2011 revamp of the Grammy Awards' category structure.

This category includes both groups/duets and collaborations of solo artists.

Looking solely at bands and duos still active, Coldplay has the most nominations in the category (five), followed by Maroon 5 (four), BTS (three) and The Chainsmokers and Florence + The Machine ( from two).

"My Universe" is the second collaboration between two bands in Grammy Awards history to be nominated for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group.

The first was 'Something Just Like This' by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay, released in 2017.

Three BTS members, RM (Kim Nam-Joon), J-Hope (Jung Ho-Seok), and Suga (Min Yoon-Gi), are also listed as creators on 'My Universe' and are also nominated for Album of the Year for their participation in Coldplay's 'Music Of The Spheres' alongside BTS's nomination.

The other nominations for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group are ABBA's "Don't Shut Me Down" and three collaborations by solo artists – Camila Cabello's "Bam Bam" with Ed Sheeran, "I Like You (A Happier Song)' by Post Malone and Doja Cat and 'Unholy' by Sam Smith and Kim Petras.

Other nominees for Best Music Video include Adele's "Easy on Me," Doja Cat's "Woman," Kendrick Lamar's "The Heart Part 5," Harry Styles' "As It Was," and "All Too Well: The Short Film” by Taylor Swift.
