Is BTS considered a snub? After just receiving one Grammy nomination, the ‘Scammys’ are on the rise.
BTS has been nominated for ‘Best Pop DuoGroup Performance’ at the 2022 Grammys, same like last year.
If Hollywood has the Oscars and American television has the Emmys, the Grammy Awards are one of the most prestigious award presentations in the Western music industry. Not only is it an honor to be nominated for a Grammy, but musicians consider it a victory just to be nominated. Even international artists compete for recognition from the American music award event because the Western music industry has admirers all over the world. This is why fans were ecstatic when BTS, the popular Korean boy band, was involved.
BTS is currently one of the most popular groups in the planet. The global sensation has a massive following, a financially successful discography, and a devoted fan base. For months, their latest single album, ‘Butter,’ and its companion tune, ‘Permission to Dance,’ topped all charts, including Billboard, putting them on par with The Beatles. Fans, however, claim that the Grammys are utilizing the K-pop trio for clout, as they did last year. Despite their huge hit “Dynamite,” BTS was only nominated for one Grammy in 2021, and it appears that history is repeating itself.
