BTS is nominated for Top Duo/Group category as well as Top Social Artist.

Global sensation BTS performed its new single Boy With Luv, and just 30 minutes after SNL posted the video of the performance, it had been viewed more than 100,000 times on YouTube.

This week has been sensational for BTS: the band broke YouTube's one-day viewing record, notching 78 million views for their collaboration with Halsey and 2 million comments.

"Boy With Luv" now officially holds the most-viewed 24-hour debut in all of YouTube's history.

The ARMYs (including a major chunk from India, who helped the album and video release hashtags trend on Twitter) were at the forefront and made it their mission to smash not only the 24-hour streaming record, but also add a major win in the boy's kitty. Both videos already have well over 1 million views.

Showcasing 13 songs in a set lasting more than 50 minutes, the quartet nailed a benchmark as the first female K-pop act to perform at Coachella.

The K-pop boy band superstars showed American audiences just how powerful the ARMY - that's what their fanbase is called - really is. Colin Jost also dropped BTS' name to a similar reaction during Weekend Update, with laud screams also accompanying the band's performances.

What new heights will the boys reach?
