“A strong candidate for the main prize”… Will BTS succeed in winning the Grammy in the ‘first vote’?


The American Recording Academy, the organizer of the Grammy Awards, which is considered the most prestigious awards ceremony in the American music industry, held the first round of voting for the Academy members consisting of music experts, including singers, producers, recording engineers, and critics from October 22. 

There is a lot of interest in whether BTS will be nominated for the Grammy Awards for the second year in a row. 

Although BTS did not succeed in winning the award because of Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande, BTS is the first Korean pop singer to be nominated for the Grammy Awards, which is conservative for songs of people of color and non-English-speaking countries to the extent that the word ‘white Grammy’ comes out. 

BTS was nominated in three categories including ‘Artist of the Year’ at the ‘2021 American Music Awards’, which is considered one of the top three American music awards along with the ‘Grammy Awards’ and ‘Billboard Music Awards’. 

BTS is the first Asian singer to be nominated in the ‘Artist of the Year’ category, which is the grand prize.

There is no denying the influence of BTS on the music industry as a whole. However, the notoriety of the ‘Grammy Awards’ is a problem. The ‘Grammy Awards’ have been criticized from generation to generation as a closed awards ceremony that drives awards to mainstream American and white music. 

It was decided to abolish the nomination committee and nominate candidates by a total vote of about 11,000 members. 

The 64th Grammy Awards will be held on January 31, 2022.
