Namjoon says BTS 'didn't fail to win' after Grammys 2021 debut performance, ARMY says 'Scammys failed them'
BTS made history at the 63rd Grammy Awards as the first Korean boy band to perform at the prestigious award show. The Billboard Hot 100 topper group who was nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group performance may not have won the award but the massive growth in streams and sales since their Grammy nomination announcement only proves that BTS will remain record-breaking artistes who breach language barriers worldwide with the message of music and love.
The group was also nominated at the Grammys for their song ‘Dynamite’ and after the award show ended, the South Korean septet came on Vlive to console ARMY and share the significant day where their much talked about Grammy performance took place. While addressing the issue of not winning, BTS leader RM aka Namjoon said, "we didn’t fail to win". Later, the group also updated a video of their reaction to the moment when the winners were announced.

On March 15, BTS came on Vlive after their Grammy performance of Dynamite to thank the BTS ARMY for supporting them through and through. Namjoom said that he has seen some headlines which say BTS failed to win. He said, "We didn’t fail to win. We performed as the first (South) Korean artists". He also added later that BTS ARMY is the biggest prize that has been supporting them from day one. Jung Kook, the youngest of the group added saying, “thank you for being with us until this time. I saw the Grammy's site, there was voting for the most anticipated artist & we were the highest there. So I got to know what's the size of ARMYs support & love. Ah our ARMY, you're so amazing.”

Another said, "BTS NEVER FAILED THE SCAMMYS FAILED!" A fan said, "They came on live just to say thanks to us ARMYs OUR SWEETEST!" Another crunched number saying, how BTS' 15-minute Vlive garnered over 7 million viewers as opposed to Grammys 12 million viewers saying plus Jung Kook's solo Vlive garnering 22 million views in total. "Who needs Grammy man #GRAMMYs. Infact the number of views #BTS_twt #JUNGKOOK empty chair on vlive was way more than the viewers of the Grammy awards", the fan posted.
