Another award season and another banger for boy-band BTS. iHeartRadio recently announced its nominees and looks like the Bangtan boys have taken yet another lead.
BTS has been nominated for several iHeartRadio Music Awards in 2022! BTS, who took home three iHeartRadio Music Awards last year, has been nominated for three more this year. The band is vying for Best Duo/Group of the Year, Best Music Video, and Best Fan Army, all of which they previously won in 2021.
Out of three, two categories are going to be voted by fans
The awards for Best Music Video and Best Fan Army are both selected by fan voting, although the award for Best Duo/Group of the Year is not. BTS is competing for Best Duo/Group of the Year alongside AJR, Bruno Mars, Anderson. Paak, Silk Sonic, Dan + Shay, and Maroon 5 this year!
Butter by BTS is up against Ed Sheeran’s Bad Habits, Bella Poarch’s Build a B*tch, Olivia Rodrigo’s Drivers License, Doja Cat’s Kiss Me More, (with SZA), Bruno Mars, Anderson. Paak, Silk and Sonic’s Leave the Door Open, Lil Nas X’s MONTERO (Call Me By Your Name), Justin Bieber’s Peaches, The Weeknd’s Save Your Tears, and The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber’s Stay in the Best Music Video category.
Finally, for this year’s Best Fan Army award, BTS ARMY will compete alongside fans of other artists like Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, Harry Styles, Megan Thee Stallion, Why Don’t We, Olivia Rodrigo, Louis Tomlinson, Big Time Rush, Selena Gomez, and Taylor Swift.
iHeart Radio is all set to make this year’s award show huge
This year’s program, now in its ninth year, will feature several award presentations, live performances by some of music’s top musicians, plenty of surprises, and more. The 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards will air on FOX from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday, March 22nd (PT tape-delayed). The show will also be carried on the iHeartRadio app and on iHeartMedia radio stations around the country.
A flashback to the 2021 win of BTS
At the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards, the K-pop performers extended their Best Fan Army winning run. The Butter superstars won the prestigious fandom award for the fourth time, and no one was happier than the BTS Army, which has maintained the group ahead of the competition in the category since their first Best Fan Army triumph in 2018.
The globally renowned septet made a strong showing at this year’s program, winning three of the four award nominations they received, including Best Music Video and Favorite Music Video Choreography (both for their smash hit song Dynamite).
