BTS was nominated for the Favorite Social Artist category, among other top pop stars such as Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Cardi B, and Shawn Mendes.

Thanks to the group’s powerful ARMY (the collective term for BTS fans), BTS emerged as the winner. 

Before earning their first ever AMA Favorite Social Artist award, BTS had already scored another prestigious win this year as Top Social Artist at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards in May.
