Then in 2019, their third studio album, Love Yourself: Tear received the nomination for Best Recording Package, which focuses on the visual look of the album; if it had won, the award would have gone to the album's art director HuskyFox rather than the group, but it was still a huge moment. But this time BTS as a group has been nominated for the awards for the first time in the prestigious competition. The band has publicly stated its wishes to be granted the chance to perform solo at Grammy ceremony as well as pick up a coveted award.

Naturally, the BTS fandom aka ARMY was over the moon after the news broke, so much so that within minutes of the announcement, BTS WORLD DOMINATION, THEY DID IT and I'M CRYING was trending on Twitter. "Ohmmmmmmyyyyyyyyggghghhhhhhhgggggggggdhdhsjsixudbslsogbdsisgshdbxidjdbdidhdifjfiri", read their caption on the video, clearly stating the happy and elated state of mind. Soon, the video took over the internet by storm. "We thank everyone for listening to our music and sympathizing with it during such a hard time".

Speaking of connecting with fans, V told GMA, "We miss you ARMY". Although Korean classical musicians or gugak (traditional Korean music) musicians have been nominated in the past, this is the first for any musician in K-pop to be recognized by the awards ceremony. "This means GRAMMY nominations and winners are determined by the music professionals who are voting members of the Recording Academy", according to the Grammy website.

Moreover, BTS defeated Jonas Brothers and Maroon 5 as the Favorite Duo or Group in the pop and rock category.
