ARMY, grab your helmets and dancing boots: BTS is coming to the American Music Awards.

The show announced on Monday (Nov. 8) that the K-pop superstars will hit the main AMAs stage with Houston rapper Megan Thee Stallion for the world TV premiere of their smash “Butter” remix.

BTS and Megan lead a lineup of big-name performers from across the musical spectrum. Also confirmed are Puerto Rican reggaeton star Bad Bunny and California teen pop phenomenon Olivia Rodrigo.

 

Rodrigo, who leads this year’s pack with seven nominations, will make her AMAs debut during the broadcast.

Bad Bunny, a two-time AMA winner, will undoubtedly get the place bouncing with the world premiere TV performance of “Lo Siento BB:/.” Nominated for five awards this year, the rapper and singer last graced the AMAs stage in 2018 alongside J Balvin and 2021 AMAs host Cardi B for a performance of “I Like It."

BTS' RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook are no strangers to the AMAs. In recent years, the South Korean superstars have nabbed six trophies, and in 2020 performed from their home country. They’re up for more hardware (three awards) this time, including a nomination for artist of the year.

Megan Thee Stallion, meanwhile, also has a hat trick of nominations this year.

“Butter” melted the Billboard Hot 100 chart this year and following the August release of its remix -- which featured Megan -- the track surged to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart for a 10th total week.
