BTS have yet to win a Grammy, but they will soon have something almost as good — a spot in the “On the Red Carpet” exhibit at the Grammy Museum at L.A. Live in Los Angeles.
The stylish matching suits that the Korean septet wore to the 61st annual Grammy Awards on Feb. 10 will be displayed alongside Grammy fashions worn by other music stars as Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Miranda Lambert, Lang Lang, Rita Ora and Kanye West — as well as former First Lady Michelle Obama.
Fans will also be able to glimpse Grammy fashions worn by two deceased music stars, Amy Winehouse and Nipsey Hussle. Winehouse, a six-time Grammy winner, died in 2011. Hussle was shot to death on March 31, just seven weeks after this year’s Grammys, where his debut album Victory Lap was nominated for best rap album.
The “On the Red Carpet” display, which is housed on the third floor of the Grammy Museum, is presented by Delta. The refreshed exhibit was slated to be previewed at a private “champagne toast” on Nov. 19.
BTS’s art director, Doohee Lee, was nominated earlier this year for best recording package for BTS’ album Love Yourself: Tear. That was the first Korean album to receive a Grammy nomination in any category. In June 2018, the album became BTS’ first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.
The refreshed “On the Red Carpet” display is just one of several major initiatives at the Grammy Museum. It has opened what it bills as L.A.’s first permanent Latin Music Gallery. It has also upgraded its Mono to Surround interactive, which is now dubbed Mono to Immersive.
