Limited BTSxAMAs Merch Released for Historic First US Awards Show Performance

BTS will continue to achieve crossover success in America with their first televised U.S. performance of “DNA” at the American Music Awards on Nov. 19. So the award ceremony decided to commemorate the historic occasion with a set of merchandise that any ARMY would appreciate.

The set is comprised of three custom pins and three custom patches, which can be bought in three different packs: a pins pack, a patches pack and an ARMY pack, which contains all six items. Individual pins and patches are also available. 

The merchandise will go on sale at ShopAMAs.com, which will have free shipping in the U.S.

The AMAs partnered with BTS to create a design that is centered around the #BTSxAMAs hashtag, which trended worldwide after it was announced that the K-pop sensations would perform.

Members RM, J-Hope, V and Jimin modeled the merch, which pairs a black and white color scheme with designs ranging from a heart to an old school television set. 

Billboard’s own Chelsea Briggs even rocked a couple of the patches on her denim jacket before their release.

The septet has taken advantage of their time in Los Angeles by pre-taping their appearances on The Late Late Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live! ahead of their upcoming guest spot on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The tapings have already built up significant fandemonium as ARMYs waited in line outside of the Jimmy Kimmel Live! set for days while #BTSxJimmyKimmel trended worldwide for hours.
