Billboard Music Awards 2022 BTS Wins

On May 15, the South Korean boy band RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook won three awards at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards. BTS was named Top Duo/Group, Top Song Sales Artist, & Top Selling Song.

Why BTS didn’t come to Billboard Music Awards 2022?
Meanwhile, BTS members did not attend or perform at the BBMAs this year. The lads were in Las Vegas in April for their four-day Permission to Dance on Stage tour and were unable to return for the BBMAs. According to reports, this is due to the fact that the highly adored vocalists are now working on their forthcoming anthology album named ‘Proof,’ which is planned to be released on June 10.
While BTS will not be attending the Billboard Music Awards, the group has made its fans happy with three significant victories at the ceremony, including Top Duo/Group, Top Selling Song, and Top Song Sales Artist.
