BTS is on fire! Last night, the Bangtan Boys made history as the first K-Pop boy group to perform at the American Music Awards. They performed their Billboard Hot 100 hit single "DNA" and America celebrated them. They joined a line-up of iconic singers like Diana Ross, Pink, Christina Aguilera, Lady Gaga, One Direction's Niall Horan and many more. BTS even ranked # 1 on Google Trends following their groundbreaking performance. BTS fans (aka A.R.M.Y) are overjoyed their favorite group is getting the attention they deserve overseas. After a whirlwind week of American interviews, meeting fellow K-Pop star Jackson Wang and a host of influential singers at the AMAs, fans are beyond proud of the way the boys continue to represent them on stage and screen. 

Let's reminisce about eight of those other wonderful moments now.
