The K-pop band though put up an enthralling performance of their hit English single 'Dynamite'. 

The K-Pop band really put the charm and talent that has amassed them millions of fans worldwide.

The boy band comprises of seven swoon-worthy bandmates RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V, and Jungkook.

 They were nominated for the very first time this year at the Grammys, in the best pop duo/group performance category. 

Previously, in a statement, BTS had told the official Grammys website of their high-energy single, "The inspiration for it all began from this: even in the midst of hardships, we must focus on what we can do. As for us, we found freedom and happiness in singing and dancing. This song goes to the ones who need encouragement. We hope people feel energized when listening to the song."

This was the third time that BTS appeared at the Grammys. Back in 2019, the group presented an award at the event, marking their first stateside award show ever. Despite being shut out of all categories at the event the following year, BTS returned to the Grammys, to make a special appearance during a performance of Lil Nas X`s `Old Town Road (Remix)`.

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards were delayed owing to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. 

The annual show shifted from its original January 31 broadcast to March 14.
