Fans of the South-Korean pop sensation came out in their droves to have their say in one of the three audience-voted awards – naming their huge show in the capital as the past year’s most epic moment in music.
In a review at the time of the gig, NME said that the show saw BTS “prove why they’re the world’s biggest pop group”.
The review continued: “When the worst thing you can say about a stadium pop show is that the band kind of drag out their goodbyes, you know it’s been a success. No one could have predicted that BTS would become the world’s biggest pop group, but on this evidence they’ve definitely earned it.”
Returning to the O2 Academy Brixton and hosted by Katherine Ryan and Julie Adenuga, the NME Awards celebrates the best of the last 12 months in music. See the full list of winners here. The evening also saw epic performances from the likes of The 1975, FKA Twigs, Yungblud, AJ Tracey, Beabadoobie and Mura Masa and Slowthai.
