The global superstars will be the first Korean boy band to perform at the American Music Awards on Sunday -- and at their rehearsal in Los Angeles on Wednesday, the guys told ET's Denny Directo why the event is a "dream come true."
"I mean, AMAs, like, we watched the videos on YouTube when we were like 15, 13, so we cannot believe that we have our first time ever U.S. televised debut on the American Music Awards," RM said. "It is going to be, I think, a new opportunity to reach out to the new fans and show them that our music and performances is something [they] can relate to, even if it's in Korean."
RM, Suga, V, Jimin, Jin, Jungkook and J-Hope arrived in the U.S. on Tuesday to prepare for their "DNA" performance -- and were greeted by hundreds of fans at LAX airport.
"Our fans, ARMY, I love you," J-Hope said of their warm welcome. Though the group's schedule has been jam-packed with late night show tapings and rehearsals since they touched down, they couldn't be more excited to finally get to the AMAs, and meet some of their musical idols.
"I like Selena Gomez," V confessed, while J-Hope couldn't be more excited to see Imagine Dragons.
"Diana Ross, Khalid," RM added, before Jin gushed about Lady Gaga.
