A big disappointment was the announcement of the nominations for the 2020 Grammy Awards, held on Wednesday, November 20, for the exclusion of the BTS group, who does not appear in any of the categories, despite all the successes and world records that reached this year, which includes having remained 52 consecutive weeks on the Billboard 200, with their album 'Love Yourself: Answer'.
This provoked a strong reaction among his followers, known as ARMY, who in addition to making his annoyance felt on social networks, prompted the boycott of the gala.
