When receiving the award RM commented; 

"Four years ago, we had given this first-time-ever TV live performance at this AMAs stage for 'DNA.' We were so excited and nervous at the time," "It's been a long and amazing ride since then, but nobody could have ever bet on the odds of us standing here receiving this award. Except for the ARMY. Seven boys from Korea, united by a love for music, met the love and support from all the ARMY all over the world. This whole thing is a miracle."

During the show, BTS performed "Universe" with Coldplay and ended the show with their mega-hit "Butter." It was the first time they were able to perform in front of their fandom ARMY in two years because of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

After the AMAs the group celebrated their victories with a party on V-Live.
