Technically this is BTS’ first shot at a Grammy Award. However, unfortunately for the boys, the nod was received for ‘Best Recording Package,’ which means the award would go to their art director, Doohee Lee.

The nomination is a credit to the original packaging and unique aesthetic used on physical versions of the critically-acclaimed album.

Here are the ‘Best Recording Package’ nominees

Be The Cowboy — Mitski
Love Yourself: Tear — BTS
Masseduction — St. Vincent
The Offering — The Chairman
Well Kept Thing — Foxhole

As of this writing, it is unclear which award BTS will present. They are not currently scheduled to perform at the event either.
