BTS miss out on Grammy, but are still first S. Korean act to be nominated Updated: 2021-03-15 10:06:19 KST

All eyes were on music's biggest night the 63rd Grammy Awards, which took place on Sunday local time.
There was high anticipation among K-pop fans over whether global megastars BTS would be able to snatch the last big prize that has eluded them.
The group and their fans ARMY had hoped to win best pop duo/group performance for the song “Dynamite", but they were pipped to the top prize by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's "Rain on Me".
BTS member Jimin shared his feelings through Twitter, encouraging fans by saying BTS were happy and grateful for having been able to go through the unbelievable experience.
But, since the result came out, fans have been expressing their disappointment, saying the award would have meant much more for BTS and K-pop.
Though BTS couldn't complete the 'Grand Slam' adding a Grammy to their awards from Billboard Music Awards and American Music Awards, experts say it still means a lot as though they had taken part in the past two Grammy awards shows, this was the first time a South Korean act has been nominated for a Grammy, and the first time BTS have done a solo performance at the awards show.
Meanwhile, Korean-American violist Richard Yongjae O'Neill won the "Best Classical Instrumental Solo" category.
He picked up his first Grammy Award, with conductor David Alan Miller of the Albany Symphony Orchestra.
The trophy was awarded for their recording of "Concerto for Viola and Chamber Orchestra" by Christopher Theofanidis.
