K-pop girl group NewJeans has made history by becoming the first K-pop girl group to perform at the 2023 Billboard Music Awards (BBMAs). The announcement was made by BBMAs on November 8th, marking a significant milestone for NewJeans, who will perform their songs “Super Shy” and “OMG” at the prestigious awards ceremony. This achievement sets them apart as trailblazers in the K-pop industry, and they join BTS as the only K-pop groups to have graced the BBMAs stage.
NewJeans’ rise to prominence on the global music scene has been remarkable. Their mini-album “Get Up,” released in July, achieved a historic feat by reaching #1 on the Billboard 200 chart in record time for a K-pop group. The group has also seen multiple songs chart on the Billboard Hot 100, and their global influence is evident with songs ranking on the Global 200 and Global (excluding the U.S.) charts. Their nominations in various BBMAs categories further solidify their status as a top global K-pop act.
The BBMAs is one of the most significant music award shows in the United States, alongside the Grammy Awards and the American Music Awards. NewJeans’ performance at the event underscores their rapid ascent in the music industry and their growing international fan base. The 2023 BBMAs will be an exciting moment for the group and their fans worldwide, with performances and award announcements set to take place on November 19th.
