Boy bands BTS and SEVENTEEN have won significant awards at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards, which were being held at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. At this year’s ceremony, Septet BTS (RM, SUGA, Jin, J-Hope, V, Jimin, and Jungkook) took the award for “Group of the Year.” BTS has won the award four times in a row, having previously won it for “Best Group” in 2019 and 2020 as well as “Group of the Year” when it was renamed last year. BTS is the group with the most wins in this category as well.
BTS has been active in promoting their anthology album “Proof,” which released in June 2022, as well as the group’s singles “Butter” and “Permission to Dance” over the past year. Through their “PERMISSION TO DANCE ON STAGE” tour, which ended in April 2022, the septet also got to meet their fans.
For their song “Rock With You,” the boy band SEVENTEEN (S.Coups, Jeonghan, Hoshi, The8, Wonwoo, Woozi, Joshua, Jun, DK, Mingyu, Seungkwan, Vernon, and Dino) wins the award for “PUSH Performance of the Year.” The song serves as the album’s title track for SEVENTEEN’s 9th mini album, “Attacca.”
