Just a few minutes before the 2018 American Music Awards officially kicked off on Tuesday night (Oct. 9), BTS had already scored its first win.
The K-pop megagroup snagged the award for Favorite Social Artist, beating out Cardi B, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato and Shawn Mendes.

The win comes after BTS scored the Top Social Artist Award at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards earlier in May. But it doesn’t come as a surprise, thanks to the hardcore support from the group’s ARMY fanbase.
