With less than a week to go before the Grammys, music-lovers across the globe are getting anxious with excitement.
Last-minute performers are being announced left, right and centre, with many fans still crossing their fingers to see or hear some of their favourite musicians.
Fittingly, BTS’ third Korean-spoken studio album, Love Yourself: Tear was nominated for a Grammy this year.
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.
The 61st Annual Grammy Awards will air on Sunday, Feb. 10, at 8 p.m. ET.
Here is the current list of performers
