“Last year, we had clear goals and a desire to win. We had to do it, to the point of despair, ”23-year-old Jungkook shared in an interview with the magazine. “I still think the same way. Today’s achievements encourage me to challenge myself even more. “ The artists admitted that they used to fixate on finding a camera when the shooting began, and now they felt more relaxed and free, which helped them win.
The rivals in the first nomination were Jonas Brothers and Maroon5, and in the second – EXO, NCT 127, Billie Eilish and Ariana Grande. Due to the current situation with the pandemic, young people could not attend the ceremony in person but expressed their gratitude for the awards in a video message.
