Janet Jackson Congratulates BTS Backstage at the Mnet Asian Music Awards: Watch

Janet Jackson met BTS backstage at the Mnet Asian Music Awards in Hong Kong, and Jackson shared the cool moment to social media on Friday (Dec. 14).

The clip shows all seven members of the K-pop group entering a dressing room where Jackson is hanging out. “Nice to meet you,” and, “Honor to meet you,” they say as they shake her hand and bow their heads toward the icon.

“Congratulations,” Jackson tells the group, who has been winning big at the MAMAs. RM replies, “We’re so, so, big, big fans.” The clip also shows Jackson asking the boys if they’re having fun; they all agree they are.

BTS welcomed Jackson to the stage at the third and final show of the 2018 MAMAs, where she received the worldwide inspiration award. Jackson was also recently announced as a 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee.
