To start the discussion, Shenequa Golding, Mikey Fresh, and John Norris began with the Best New Artist category which included BTS amongst many other artists. They spoke about artists who might or should be nominated for the category like SZA, Cardi B, Logic, and much more. Out of all the predictions, one group popped out which was BTS, the only K-pop group mentioned in the video.
While the awards show does have strict guidelines and eligibility in regards to artists being nominated for their categories, the critics/experts do see some possibility in BTS being nominated, especially with the global impact K-pop has had across the world.
The mention of BTS starts from 6:02 in the video below, check it out!
