A bittersweet win for bts. Although they were among the favorites and had more nominations at the 2022 MTV VMAs than any other K-pop act, the septet suffered a crushing defeat losing in almost every category they contested.
Alone on the straight at the end of the Video Music Awards 2022the global group entered the official winners list with a single win. What happened to Bangtan?
BTS nominations at MTV VMAs 2022
This year BTS emerged as the K-pop group with the most nominations of the MTV VMA’sas in previous editions since its first participation in 2019.
Because this season was also excellent for the team led by RM, an all-kill was expected or, in any case, they would dominate the results in most of their mentions.
However, on August 28, the day of the central gala, the boys first ran out of prizes in the new metaverse category. The same fell into the hands of BLACKPINK before the central ceremony.
The stars of YG, who did attend the event in the United States unlike Bangtan, prevailed with the public vote for the in-game concert in PUBG Mobile.
Already at the gala, the medal for the best k-pop video went to Lisa, the youngest member of the aforementioned girlband. This honor, which is also determined by the public through votes, had been held by BTS uninterruptedly since 2019.
the maknae Jungkook and Charlie Puth also failed to win Best Song of the Summer for their collaboration “Left & Right.” On this occasion, Jack Harlow won the ‘man in the Moon’ for “First class”.
However, not everything was defeat for Bangtan: when their fans were already resigned to not celebrating a victory, they were announced as the group of the year briefly on the television broadcast.
Jimin, Jungkook, V, RM, J-Hope, Suga and Jin thus added this category to their long collection of awards as they beat BLACKPINK in a close final vote.
Who won best choreography and best visual effects at the 2022 VMAs?
The two specialized nominations also did not go to BTS. In the case of best special effects, the recognition went to the video “Industry baby” by Jack Harlow with Lil Nas X. On the other hand, Doja Cat celebrated in the category of best choreography for “Woman”.
How many VMAs does BTS have?
During their entire career, BTS was awarded 9 VMAs. The best harvest for Bangtan occurred in the 2020 edition of the awards as they swept the four categories in which they were nominated.
That same year, the ‘tannies’ performed for the first time at the MTV gala with the song “Dynamite” (filmed from South Korea due to the pandemic).
On the other hand, in 2021 they received the most nominations (to date) of their artistic life as a group. BTS competed in 7 categories, including best pop video.
ARMY and the #boracarpet
The reaction of ARMY at the 2022 VMAs it is evidenced in the trend that emerged in parallel to the awards. Since the Bangtan Boys did not attend the show, fans put together their own celebration through photo montages.
As there was a mix-up in the “best group” results before the main ceremony, the fandoms involved were in high spirits.
