BTS performed their hit “Dynamite” from a Seoul, South Korea, rooftop at the 2021 Grammy Awards.

The K-pop superstars performed the Be track in synchronized movements underneath a massive ceiling of floral arrangements and sparklers. The performance ended on the rooftop, surrounded by Seoul’s city lights.

After being shut out of the 2020 Grammys, BTS received a nomination this year for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Dynamite,” up against Taylor Swift and Bon Iver’s “Exile,” Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s “Rain on Me,” and others. (Gaga and Grande would win the award in a pre-televised ceremony.)

“The Grammys is definitely the most honorable music award that evaluates the prominence and musicality of an artist,” RM told Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. “Doing a BTS solo performance with our own song and winning a Grammy [is] our ultimate goal, and our dream that has naturally grown inside us.”

BTS appeared at the Grammys last year — joining Lil Nas X for “Old Town Road” alongside Diplo, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Mason Ramsey — but this is their first time performing their own music. Last month, they performed “Dynamite” on MTV Unplugged, as well as the Be tracks “Telepathy,” “Blue & Grey,” “Life Goes On,” and a cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You.”  “This song gave us comfort,” Jimin said, “so we wanted to prepare this cover to comfort you as well.”
