"We never expected that, but before [they announced it], cameras were in front of us, and we were like, 'Seriously?' Like, 'OK, OK.' But we heard the name and it's like, we're speechless," Rap Monster told ET's Cameron Mathison backstage. "We cannot say a word, it's crazy."
"[Fans have] been waiting on the red carpet and even so many fans are in the arena. It's crazy," said Rap Monster, who was joined by bandmates Jin, Suga, J-Hope, Jimin, V and Jungkook. "Thank you for shouting out for us, thank you for voting for us, thank you for waiting for us and everything, please."
The band also had a fan backstage, in Celine Dion's son, Rene-Charles Angelil.
"They're pretty good! I like them, yeah," the 16-year-old told ET before getting a picture with BTS. "I don't know [if my mom likes them], I'll have to ask her. I'm pretty sure she does though, she keeps up with new music."
