Coldplay X BTS performance at AMAs slammed over ‘s**tty’ camera work and mic problems
While the BTS Army was looking forward to their performance, fans expressed their anger over terrible camera work and audio issues
The 2021 American Music Awards (AMAs) kickstarted with much gusto but it was the performance of K-pop icons BTS with Coldplay that took the award ceremony a notch higher. The band’s frontman Chris Martin took the centerstage with the quartet as they crooned their global hit collaboration ‘My Universe’ at the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, November 21.
While the BTS Army was looking forward to the highly anticipated performance, the fans expressed their anger over terrible camera work and audio issues. Many thronged Twitter to slam the producers of the show as they could not enjoy the Coldplay X BTS performance. BTS was earlier slated to perform with Megan Thee Stallion too but the latter dropped out of the show due to an “unexpected personal matter.” The K-pop band scored three nods at 2021AMAs and won the Favorite Pop Group Award right after their performance with Coldplay. MEAWW will keep you posted with more wins.
Coldplay X BTS at 2021 AMAs
This is the very first time when Coldplay and BTS landed on the stage together for a live performance. While speaking to People magazine on the 2021 AMAs’ red carpet, the K-Pop stars shared their excitement to hit the stage alongside the group, “These two years now have come full-circle, 360 degrees” adding, “So it's really strange to hear the noise and face to face without masks. It means so much more because we're nominated today for artist of the year."
Speaking of 2021 AMAs performances, the fans will see artists like Bad Bunny with Tainy and Julieta Venegas, Kane Brown, Maneskin, Tyler, The Creator, Carrie Underwood and Jason Aldean, Zoe Wees, New Edition and New Kids on The Block, Olivia Rodrigo, Silk Sonic, Chloe, and Diplo among a few others hitting the stage to thrill the audience. Olivia Rodrigo, who had an amazing year with her debut album ‘Sour’, is leading the pack with seven nominations including Artist of the Year and New Artist of the Year. The Weeknd, who has earlier won five American Music Awards, scored six nominations this year including the Artist of the Year. Bad Bunny, Doja Cat, and Giveon managed to earn five nods each.
‘Low-quality mic and camera work but high-quality performance’
BTS Army slammed the show for not taking care of mics and also for not filming the performance properly. “bts and coldplay at amas, cute performance loved the energy, but really might fight whoever decided to turn almost everyone’s mics down.” Another shared, “I NEED AMA'S BTS X COLDPLAY HYBE VERS.
