The ARMY of the K-pop boy band BTS was once again saddened by the band’s absence at the 2022 Grammy Awards, which were held in Las Vegas, Nevada on Monday (Manila Time). “Butter” didn’t win Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, which went to Doja Cat and SZA’s “Kiss Me More.” SZA and Doja Cat are both receiving their first Grammy Award. The award-giving committee has been called “Scammys” by the Army, which claims that the Korean group is deserving of the award.
“Disappointed, but not surprised. Scammys don’t deserve BTS, “one Twitter user remarked.
Some other person included a photo of the award winners receiving it in their remark.
Last year, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s “Rain On Me” beat out the K-pop group’s “Dynamite” for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
Even with the defeat, several fans congratulated BTS for their efforts in making “Butter” a hit as well as their performance at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in L.a..
“You make us proud, my beautiful boys. We are right behind you today and always,” a Twitter user said.
“BTS hugging each other, we are so proud of you BTS y’all did a great job and ARMYs fandom hug let’s work hard this year too.”
The hashtag # scammys was one of the most trending topics on Twitter Philippines, with 58,000 tweets, followed by # OurProudBTS with 300,000 tweets and # BTSARMY with 800,000 tweets.
Jon Batiste, this year’s top Grammy candidate, outshined his heavyweight competitors to win the coveted Album of the Year award for “We Are,” a success for the jazz and R&B singer with a smaller global following than his pop star counterparts.
Batiste, who has already won an Oscar for his score for the Pixar animated film “Soul,” stunned Grammy watchers by receiving the most nominations of any artist with 11 nods this year.
