AceShowbiz - BTS (Bangtan Boys) is about to make another dream come true. Their fans, known as ARMYs, have started a Twitter campaign to score a Grammy Awards invitation for the band following the band's performance on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon".
Stopping by the NBC talk show on Tuesday night, September 25, the seven-piece group was asked by Jimmy Fallon what they would like to accomplish next after speaking at the United Nations and selling out tickets to their Citi Field concert in under 10 minutes. RM a.k.a. Rap Monster diplomatically said, "I want to stay humble and enjoy the ride."
But Suga decided to be honest and revealed his ambitious wish to "go to Grammy." Even his bandmates were stunned by Suga's dream, with Jin and J-Hope shouting, "Go to Grammy?" But Jimmy said that they could make it happen. "You can dream," he said, before urging viewers to tweet #BTSGrammy.
The hashtag has since become one of trending topics in the U.S., along with #BTSonFallon.
During the interview, BTS also talked about what they love the most during their visit in New York. J-Hope said he loves shopping and wanted to go to SoHo. As for V, he treasured the view of the city streets and New York street hot dogs.
Asked about their speech at the UN, RM explained, "It's mainly about speaking yourself instead of letting other people speak for you. 'Cause to truly know ourselves, it's important to firstly know who I am and, you know, where I'm from and what my name is and what my voice is, kind of like that."
RM also admitted that he was actually "so nervous" while delivering the speech. "I'm holding up the paper. And if you see that, I was like, shaking." He added that speaking at the 73rd UN General Assembly was "a big deal."
BTS had previously attended the 2017 Billboard Music Awards and performed at the 2017 American Music Awards. They also performed on "America's Got Talent" earlier this month and is set to perform on "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, September 26.
