After BTS took home an award at this year’s Billboard Music Awards, plenty of celebrities and members of their team have posted on social media to congratulate the group and celebrate their history-making win!
BTS attended the Billboard Music Awards on May 21 in Las Vegas, where they became the first K-pop group to win a trophy at the annual ceremony when they received the fan-voted award for Top Social Artist. The group was nominated along with artists including Justin Bieber (who previously won six years in a row), Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, and Shawn Mendes.
Shortly after BTS’s win was broadcast on television, BTOB’s Peniel took to Twitter to express his amazement over the event and congratulate the group.

The account of music video production team Lumpens (which has created many of the group’s MVs) tweeted, “I truly congratulate you. Thanks to you, I’ve become a director for a Billboard Music Award-winning artist!” The account later tweeted, “The kids’ ‘most beautiful moment in life’ keeps continuing even in reality,” referencing BTS’s hit series of releases entitled “The Most Beautiful Moment in Life.”
