BTS will also perform ‘Butter’ at the ceremony tonight. They were originally scheduled to play a remixed version of the record-breaking track with Megan Thee Stallion for the first time. However, the rapper announced days before the ceremony she would no longer be performing due to “an unexpected personal matter”.
“I’m so sad!” she told fans on Twitter. “I really can’t wait to hit the stage with my guys and perform #BTS_Butter real soon!”
Some winners from the AMAs 2021 were announced on TikTok earlier today, before the main event kicked off in LA. Among the first winners were Taylor Swift for Favourite Female Pop Artist and The Weeknd for Favourite Male R&B Artist.
