Music sensations BTS is back in the United States. The world's biggest boy band performed on this night's 2018 Billboard Music Awards. The group was named the Top Social Artist winners two years in a row, having first won the award in 2017. BTS performed "Fake Love," which was the world television premiere of their new single.

The Korean pop band just announced its highly anticipated new album, “Love Yourself: Tear." 
The night's host Kelly Clarkson teased the crowd of the enthusiastic screaming fans by wearing pink earmuffs to help drown out the screams. 

 “2018 Billboard Music Awards” was broadcast live from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 20 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on NBC.  

BTS scored its first Top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart in October with “Love Yourself: Her” -- earning both the highest-charting album ever on the chart by a K-pop act, and the genre's biggest sales week. Since then, the seven-member group tallied its first top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with "Mic Drop," featuring Desiigner.

BTS has also spent more than 70 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Social 50 chart, which ranks the most popular music artists across the world's social networks. Collectively, BTS' albums have earned 1 million equivalent album units in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music, and the group's catalog of songs have collected nearly 2 billion on-demand streams.
