Even the hashtag "#WHATYOONGIWANTS" trended as fans recall the time when BTS Suga shared his hope to perform with his fellow members at the GRAMMY Awards stage - and now they will, indeed, do what he previously wished for.

Fans also trended "#HAPPYBIRTHDAYYOONGI" as an advance greeting to BTS Suga who will be celebrating his birthday on March 9. ARMYs considered the announcement of BTS performing at the 2021 GRAMMY Awards as his huge birthday gift.

BTS Previously Appeared at the GRAMMY Awards

Meanwhile on February 2019, BTS appeared at the 61st GRAMMY Awards to present the trophy for the Best R&B Album, which was held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. At that time, the K-pop boy band promised to return to the stage.

And on Jan. 26 (local time) last year, BTS did come back at the GRAMMY stage. Big Hit Entertainment's boy group performed at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards, which were conducted at the same venue as the previous year. In particular, the septet made a collaborative performance with Lil Nas X for his "Old Town Road All-Stars" special stage.

At the 2021 GRAMMY Awards, BTS will be taking the stage alone for the first time to perform their own tracks. This makes the band the first Korean act to perform as an official nominee at the major awards ceremony.

And speaking of "nominee," the K-pop boy band is one of the nominees for the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category, which acknowledges accomplishments in "new vocal or instrumental duo/group or collaborative pop recordings." The septet successfully earned their first nod with their hit song "Dynamite.

"BTS's "Dynamite" is currently nominated together with Justin Bieber's "Intentions" featuring Quavo, Taylor Swift's "Exile" featuring Bon Iver, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande's "Rain on Me," and Dua Lipa, J Balvin, Bunny, and Tainy's "Un Dia (One Day)."

The group's 2018 album "Love Yourself: Tear" was previously nominated at the 2019 GRAMMY Awards for the Best Recording Package category, which is given to an album's art director. And so their current nomination marks the first time that the BTS members themselves have been nominated for the awards ceremony.

The 2021 GRAMMY Awards will be broadcast live on March 14 at 8:00 p.m. EST.
