The fact that Black Pink was not named in the Grammy nomination list disappointed many fans, but BTS fans thought it was … obvious.
BTS has made history when they first received a Grammy nomination in the “Best Pop Duo / Group Performance” category for the song Dynamite. The group is the second Korean artist after Sumi Jo (1993) to be nominated at the Grammy and is the first Kpop group, the first Asian group to receive a nomination at the prestigious American music awards ceremony.
Previously, 4 Korean groups submitted nominations at Grammy 2021 including BTS (submitted 7 applications for 7 categories), Black Pink (submitted 4 applications), Monsta X (submitted 7 applications), and SuperM (submitted 8 records). If BTS was honored to be named for one category, the remaining 3 Kpop groups were completely empty-handed.
BTS resonated when receiving the first Grammy nomination in their career.
This is a predicted result because among the groups applying for Grammy nominations, only BTS has many opportunities due to the recognition of both experts and audiences in the US. BTS’s achievements are clearly shown through the impressive rankings at the Billboard Hot 100, the “huge” sale volume in the US market as well as the group’s position and influence on the Western music industry over the years.
Black Pink pity “empty-handed” despite submitting 4 applications for 4 categories, including Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year: ‘Ice Cream’ (with Selena Gomez) and Performance Best pop group / duet: ‘Ice Cream’ (with Selena Gomez).
However, many Black Pink fans still expressed their disappointment when their idol could not have a nomination for “Best New Artist” category. Before the American Academy of Music announced the nomination list, the Blinks “prayed” for Black Pink to do wonders. In 2020, Black Pink has worked hard and achieved many remarkable achievements in the international market. Some fans criticized the racist Grammy, “robbed Black Pink’s nomination” and many other angry comments on Twitter. Meanwhile, many BTS fans sarcasm Black Pink fans … “climbing high and falling pain” because “do not know the amount of strength”.
