After dropping a HUGE announcement about their upcoming album Love Yourself: Tear, BTS is coming back with some more exciting news — they’ll be performing at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards next month!

According to dick clark productions and NBC, the K-pop band are expected to perform the world television premiere of their new single, and join previously announced performers Camila Cabello, Dua Lipa and Shawn Mendes.

The reigning Top Social Artist winners are up for the same award this year and scored their first top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart in October with “Love Yourself: Her” — earning both the highest-charting album ever on the chart by a K-pop act, and the genre’s biggest sales week.

Since making their BBMA debut last year, the seven-member group tallied its first top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Mic Drop,” featuring Desiigner. BTS has also spent more than 70 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Social 50 chart, which ranks the most popular music artists across the world’s social networks. Collectively, BTS’ albums have earned 1 million equivalent album units in the U.S., according to Nielsen Music, and the group’s catalog of songs have collected nearly 2 billion on-demand streams.

Hosted by Kelly Clarkson, the 2018 Billboard Music Awards air LIVE from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday, May 20th @ 8PM ET/5PM PT on NBC.
