BTS is back at the American Music Awards, and they're having a major fashion moment. The members of the group RM, Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook arrived at the AMAs red carpet wearing matching black and white ensembles, once again making an award show splash.

The K-Pop band hit the AMAs stage for the first time in 2017, and performed their single "DNA." It was the first time the group performed in the United States and it was met with hundreds of screaming fans in the audience thrilled to see the Korean group's popularity make it to the states.

The K-Pop band, whose fans are known as ARMY, were nominated for their very first AMAs in 2018, when they took home the prize for Favorite Social Artist. It was the very first year the AMAs honored performers based on their fan support on social media platforms, and came one year after BTS won Top Social Artist at the Billboard Music Awards. The group beat out Cardi B, Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato and Shawn Mendes for the title.

The following year, in 2019, the band returned to the AMA stage, where they once again claimed the Social Artist title, as well as the Favorite Duo or Group in the Pop/Rock category prize and the Favorite Tour award.

This year, BTS is once again fighting to hang onto their Favorite Social Artist prize, and is again nominated for the Favorite Duo or Group award. They will also perform their new song "Life Goes On" off their latest album Be.

Explained J-Hope in a video posted to the AMAs Twitter account, "Back in 2017, we were more nervous because it was our first time performing on a US show, or TV."

The band said that they've "matured" and "improved" since that initial performance—so expect even more fans to scream at the sight of this K-Pop group this time around!
