"We’ve been listening to Billboard since we were like eight"
Kpop group BTS is set to perform and debut a new single at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards
Recently announcing their new album Love Yourself: Tear, BTS also made history by being the first Korean boy band to ever perform at the 2017 American Music Awards.
Kelly Clarkson will host the 2018 Billboard Music Awards, whilst Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes are also set to perform.
“I mean, it’s crazy. This is the first time we’ve come to like an American award show and it’s also Billboard,” BTS said to E! News at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards. “The name is really huge for us. We’ve been listening to Billboard since we were like eight.”
Although BTS have performed worldwide to gargantuan audiences, the group still get nervous.
“It is like something that we can never get used to,” BTS member RM told E! News. “It is new every day.”
