BTS Wins Big At 2021 People's Choice Awards


The power of the ARMY was obvious at the 2021 People's Choice Awards, which were handed out on Tuesday.

BTS was voted The Group of 2021 and won both Song and Video for their hit “Butter”.

Justin Bieber, who had a leading 10 nominations, ended up winning only one. “Stay,” his track with The Kid LAROI, was voted The Collaboration Song of 2021.

Canadian artists Drake, Shawn Mendes, The Weeknd and Tate McRae came up empty.

Olivia Rodrigo won a pair – New Artist and Album – while Adele was voted Female Artist. The People’s Choice for Social Star of 2021 was Britney Spears.

Christina Aguilera performed a medley of her hits and accepted the inaugural Music Icon award. "I have always strived for my music to communicate messages of empowerment, whether it’s speaking my own truths or giving voice to those unable to do so on their own," she said. "My artistry has always been for the fighters in this world, for those who face adversity, for those wanting to evoke change, my music is for you."
