• BTS lost the Best Pop Duo/Group trophy to Doja Cat and ZSA
  • "Disappointed, but not surprised," one fan wrote on Twitter
  • BTS also performed at the Grammys

BTS fans could not hide their disappointment after the world-famous septet failed to score the Grammy trophy for the Best Pop Duo/Group for the second consecutive year.

The topic “scammys” trended on Twitter after the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance trophy was awarded to Doja Cat and ZSA for their song “Kiss Me More.” Last year, BTS was nominated for the same category, but lost to Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's “Rain on Me.”

The massive BTS fan base, known as the ARMY, had been anticipating a sure win for the chart-topping hit, “Butter,” which earlier won Billboard’s 2021 Song of The Summer.

“Disappointed, but not surprised. Scammys don’t deserve BTS,” one fan tweeted alongside a photo of Will Smith slapping Chris Rock during the Oscar Awards. The text in the photo portrayed Rock as Grammys, while Smith supposedly represented the ARMY.

“So you’re telling me.. bts can win 9 AMERICAN music awards but not a Grammy? Okay. #scammys,” another fan wrote.

One fan made it clear their love for the septet was solid, despite the group not winning the award.

“You make us proud, my beautiful boys. We are right behind you today and always,” the fan said.

BTS delivered an impressive performance of “Butter” on Sunday, which received a standing ovation from the audience, who attended the 2022 Grammy Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

The group also had a brief interview with host Trevor Noah at the beginning of the show.

Noah asked BTS, “We did the previous Grammys where you performed all the way from Korea but now, you’re here in person, how are you feeling?”

Jungkook and RM replied, “Great!”

Noah then asked RM if he really learned English by watching the series “Friends.”

“Yes, ‘Friends’ is my English parents,” RM said, adding among all the characters, Chandler was his favorite. “I love him,” he quipped.

The 38-year-old comedian and talk show host then told the group he learned Korean after recently watching a South Korean series. Noah then sang the infamous “Red Light, Green Light” song from “Squid Game,” which quickly sent the whole group into laughter.
