But this year's Top Duo-Group prize went to the Jonas Brothers, while Post Malone clinched the most coveted award of the night, Top Artist. After the winners' list was out, the brothers took to their social media handles to celebrate.

During the show, Post Malone also performed his song "Circles" from a remote location.

Earlier this week, BTS ranked No. 1 on Billboard's Social 50 chart for the 200th consecutive week, the longest streak by any musician. They're afraid of your power.

It was also nominated in the Top Duo/Group section for this year's BBMA along with Dan + Shay, Jonas Brothers, Maroon 5 and Panic!. The septet is the only K-pop act to not only be nominated but also to win the fan-voted award since 2017.

K-pop boy band BTS won the Top Social Artist award at this year's Billboard Music Awards (BBMA), their fourth consecutive victory in the category.

"I know that everybody has been through so much this year".

"BTS planned the BBMA performance in the hope that the COVID-19-hit world would connect with each other again", Big Hit Entertainment, the septet's management agency, said in a release. Brooks, who is the only artist to have nine of his albums sell more than 10 million units each and reach diamond status, performed a medley of his hits. Others set to perform Wednesday include Alicia Keys, Bad Bunny, Sia, Kane Brown, Luke Combs, Doja Cat, En Vogue, Khalid, Brandy, Ty Dolla $ign, Swae Lee, Demi Lovato and SAINt JHN.

Kelly Clarkson is hosting the show, where Malone is up for honors including top artist, top male artist, top rap artist and top streaming songs artist. Clarkson was joined by drummer Sheila E. and a cappella group Pentatonix for the performance of the song, which earned Houston a posthumous nomination for top dance/electronic song.

Guitar rock legend Eddie Van Halen, who died last week, was honored as the show aired a clip of his Billboard Awards performance from 2015.

The 2020 Billboard Awards were originally supposed to take place in April but was postponed because of the pandemic.

Other nominees include Kanye West, who released two gospel albums previous year.
