BTS stunned us on the 2020 AMAs red carpet: See the hot looks yourself
BTS truly sparked the world like dynamite a few days ago with their outfits and incredible performance at the 2020 American Music Awards. On Nov. 22nd, the beloved K-pop group performed two songs from their latest album on the show and even took home two awards for “Best Duo or Group- Pop/Rock” and “Social Artist”.
The boys decided to keep it simple by wearing white button downs paired with black dress pants. However, their uniformity didn’t mean take away from their individual classiness. Looking closely, you can see that each of their shirts was designed exclusively for them by the brand LEMETEQUE, each with a slight variation such as a longer sleeve, a banded collar, or a contrast stitch.
On the brand’s Instagram, @lemetequeofficial, the designer wrote, “We made seven special shirts for only BTS. It was such an honorable work. We are very grateful to the bts stylist team”, while also posting a video of RM, Jungcook, Suga, V, Jin, Jimin, and J-Hope performing in their outfits.
The brand also designed some more shirts for the boys for another recent appearance on “Good Morning America”, and this time their designs were a little more colorful. The brand posted a video of their appearance with the caption: “We made special 70s style shirts only for jungkook & v & rm & jin. It was such an honorable work. We are very grateful to the bts stylist team.”
Last Friday on Nov. 20th, BTS released their new eight track album titled BE. One of these tracks includes the first song they’ve ever released together in full English, titled “Dynamite”. Since this release, the boys have mainly been performing “Dynamite” at recent appearances alongside their other hit single from the album, “Life Goes On”.
BTS made history when they gave a speech on Sept. 23rd at the 75th United Nations General Assembly (which was held online this year due to the pandemic.) The K-pop group was invited by the Group of Friends of Solidarity for Global Health Security created by South Korea to address current events in the world regarding COVID-19.
The global superstars came together to share their stories on how they’ve been negatively affected by the pandemic but also shared words of hope and inspiration to thousands of online viewers all around the world.
The boys also shined light on how they came together and tried to make the most out of life in these dark times. “We embraced all of these emotions and the seven of us began to make music together,” J-Hope proclaimed. “This is where the music came from, and this made us honest.”
BTS also encouraged everyone watching to make sure to keep their mental health in check. Jin said “Thinking about the future and trying hard are all important. But cherishing yourself, encouraging yourself, and keeping yourself happy is the most important. In a world of uncertainty, we must cherish the importance of ‘me,’ ‘you,’ and ‘us.’”
The beloved stars ended their speeches with each member reminding the world that “Life goes on”, a nod to their hit single from their newest album.
Despite their setbacks from the global pandemic this past year, BTS has still proven to be quite successful. Earlier this year in February, the group released another album Map of the Soul: 7 which broke their own record for best-selling Korean album of all time.
In August, BTS expressed to ET how they’ve faced turmoil due to all the unexpected events this year. RM stated, “2020 has been truly a rough year for many and there were many surprises and changes. To be honest, we thought we needed a breakthrough from that, so we focused on what we can do for the best and that was music and performance”.
