Billboard has confirmed that BTS will be in attendance at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards.
The 2017 Billboard Music Awards will be held on May 21 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and BTS will be the first Korean group ever to attend the ceremony.
Earlier in the week, ARMYs asked Dick Clark Productions President, Mike Mahan, if BTS had been invited to the event and he responded that he had indeed sent the group an invite.

Billboard has since confirmed that BTS will indeed be attending the ceremony to watch as they keep their fingers crossed for the win in the category of Top Social Media Artist. Other nominees for the award are Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Shawn Mendes.
