All The Ways BTS Won Our Hearts At The 2019 GRAMMYs

From hinting at new music to dancing in the audience to presenting their first award, everyone's favorite K-pop septet lived it up at their first-ever GRAMMY Awards

GRAMMYs/Feb 12, 2019 - 05:30 am

The seven members of K-pop phenomenon BTS—J-Hope, Jin, V, Jungkook, Jimin, Suga and RM—were clearly as excited as their fans were for their first appearance at the 61st GRAMMY Awards. From arriving in style to dancing in their seats to more firsts as they took the stage, let's countdown the top five ways the boys of BTS stole the show—and our hearts.

5. Looking Dapper In Tuxes

The South Korean group always has a strong style game, but their understated pizazz in matching black-and-white tuxedos really elevated their look on their first GRAMMYs red carpet. Their excitement to be a part of Music's Biggest Night was palpable as they exited the SUV, posed for their first photos of the evening and made their way to the carpet.

4. Coyly Teasing New Music On The Red Carpet

Once they were on the carpet, the Recording Academy shared a special moment with the boys by asking few burning questions. When we asked when we could expect a new album, they teased with just enough info to get fans buzzing.

"It's gonna be real soon," RM said.

When asked if it would be a collab album, RM gave a coy answer, while Jimin looked straight into the camera and said: "There could be a collaboration song and some joint songs, we don't know, we're working on it."

They also shared their excitement about seeing H.E.R., Lady Gaga and Travis Scott perform at the GRAMMYs. (Back in September, during their visit to the GRAMMY Museum, BTS shared that they'd been listening to a lot of Scott's "Sicko Mode," so the boys were definitely ready to dance.)

3. Dropping Even More Collab Hints

In addition to being ready to watch some of their favorite U.S.-based artists live for the first time, BTS name-dropped H.E.R., Scott and Gaga all as their dream collaborators. As they told Variety in another playful red carpet interview, they would love to work with the aforementioned artists, along with Camila Cabello

2. Singing & Dancing To "Jolene"

The boys seemed to be having the most fun of pretty much everyone when Dolly Parton took the stage for a big medley with some very special guests to celebrate her being the 2019 MusiCares Person Of The Year. As the cameras cut to the audience during Parton and goddaughter Miley Cyrus' "Jolene" duet, BTS could be seen dancing and singing along enthusiastically. Clearly anyone sitting near them had the best seats in the house, and the BTS army was quick to make the joyful moment viral.

1. Becoming The First K-Pop Group To Present A GRAMMY

In addition to having a blast at their first GRAMMYs, the boys made history as the first K-pop group to present an award in the show's 61 years. They took the stage at STAPLES Center for the first time to present H.E.R.—one of the artist's they were stoked to see—with Best R&B Album.

As they told Variety on the carpet, it was their first time ever presenting an award, so it was quite a monumental day of highs and big firsts for the boys.

Allen Hughes' "The Defiant Ones" Wins Best Music Film | 2018 GRAMMY

Director Allen Hughes' four-part documentary takes home Best Music Film honors for its portrayal of the unlikely partnership that changed the music business

GRAMMYs/Jan 29, 2018 - 02:09 am

The team behind The Defiant Ones celebrated a big win for Best Music Film at the 60th GRAMMY Awards. The crew awarded include director Allen Hughes and producers Sarah Anthony, Fritzi Horstman, Broderick Johnson, Gene Kirkwood, Andrew Kosove, Laura Lancaster, Michael Lombardo, Jerry Longarzo, Doug Pray & Steven Williams.

In a year rife with quality music documentaries and series, the bar has been set high for this dynamic category. The Defiant Ones is a four-part HBO documentary telling the story of an unlikely duo taking the music business by storm seems better suited for fantastical pages of a comic book, but for engineer-turned-mogul Jimmy Iovine and super-producer Dr. Dre, it's all truth.The Defiant Ones recounts their histories, their tribulations and their wild success. These include first-hand accounts from those who were there in Iovine's early days, such as Bruce Springsteen and U2's Bono, as well as those on board when Dre and Iovine joined forces, such as Snoop Dogg and Eminem.

The competition was stiff as the category was filled with compelling films such as One More Time With Feeling, Two Trains Runnin', Soundbreaking, and Long Strange Trip.

They're really a good part of society. Know if you love music, this is the place to find it."

Original Misfits Unleash One Night Only L.A. Reunion Show

Dark punk legends to play first show with Glenn Danzig and Jerry Only since last year's Riot Fest reunion

GRAMMYs/Aug 22, 2017 - 05:28 am

There's big news today for punk-rock fans aware that the Misfits made much more than just T-shirts.

The massively influential punk band announced a special show touted as the "only 2017 performance in this world… or any world" and billed as "The Original Misfits" in Los Angeles at the Forum on Dec. 30.

This will be the first Misfits show featuring original singer Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only with long-time guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein since the band reunited for a pair of Riot Fest appearances in Chicago and Denver in 2016. Last year's Riot Fest gigs, which featured drummer Dave Lombardo, marked the first time in 33 years the original Misfits members played together.

"OK Los Angeles, you've waited almost 35 years for this, here's your chance to see the "Original Misfits" in this Exclusive L.A. only performance." said Glenn Danzig. "No Tour, No BS, just one night of dark metal-punk hardcore brutality that will go down in the history books. See you there."

Tickets for this "one night only" show go on sale Friday, August 25.
