Because where BTS pops the bubble, rips the seam, whatever metaphor you want to use, this could be a venue for more kpop acts to follow. It's time the world realizes what cool music is.

"Top Social Artist"? What is this award for?

Artist that is most connected to their fans and active on social media, such as twitter, IG, FB, etc. From what I gathered, it's like an award for the most fan interaction. At least, that's what I read.

And the one solo artist who cracked the US, for however long he bothered to do so, is 5'7". Figure that out.

well top social artist is a pretty big category cause it shows how popular the artist is on social media. And we all know how social media is spread out nowadays.

Um well its not a music category and tbh BTS is fairly new in the states and they're following is slowly getting bigger it would be weird if they were nominated for a music award considering their intent wasn't to cater to the western market but its definitely a big category and the fact that they're nominated regardless of them trying to cater to western fans mean a lot. The Top Social Artist award is based on the Social 50 chart, which ranks the most popular artists across social media platforms such as “Likes,” “Follows,” subscribers, track plays, artist page views, “followers” on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, VEVO, Spotify, SoundCloud, and other significant online networks and portals. So I wouldn't discredit this award just because you don't think it means much. Bts has to break into the western music market before they can start winning music categories like "best album". Lol lets take baby steps first.

Am aware of that. But the voting page doesn't have instructions. There's a black screen with the words "LIVE for QA - 4/11 Login".
