The nominations for the 64th Grammys are out and it looks like BTS Army is pretty disappointed with the Recording Academy. The global K-pop icons, who created history at the American Music Award 2021 by winning the Artist Of The Year, along with two other wins (Favorite Pop Duo/Group and Favorite Pop Song), managed to earn just a single nod at the prestigious music awards. And this seems to have irked the Army, who took to social media to express their resentment. While millions of fans used the hashtag ‘Scammy’
while calling out Recording Academy, a few even called them ‘xenophobic’. Check out a few reactions here:

Meanwhile, the South Korean all-boys group which comprises of RM, Jin, V, Jungkook, Suga, J-Hope and Jimin shared a thank note post the announcement, expressing their gratitude to the Army for their constant support. BTS, who have been nominated alongside Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Benny Blanco, Doja Cat and SZA & Coldplay, took to the microblogging site and wrote, “This is a huge honor. Thanks to everyone who supports our music journey!”

BTS Army also highlighted another error made by Recording Academy by pointing out the missing description under BTS’ name during the nominations announcement like other presenters. With millions of BTS fans taking to their respective Twitter handles to call out Recording Academy, the microblogging site has been flooded with tweets related to BTS.
TELL ME IF THIS ISNT UNFAIR!?!??? THIS IS SOO FREAKING ?!?!?

While BTS has earned a solo nod at the upcoming Grammy Awards, American musician and television presenter Jon Batiste leads the pack with 11 nods. On the other hand, pop sensation Justin Bieber, Doja Cat and H.E.R. have managed to secure eight nods each while Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish follow with seven.
The 64th Grammy Awards ceremony will be held on Jan. 31, 2022, at the Crypto.com Arena (formerly known as the Staples Center), in Los Angeles.
