BTS recently cemented themselves as true legends after making history during this year’s American Music Awards (AMA). Not only did they pick up Favorite Pop Duo or Group, Favorite Pop Song, but they became the first Asian group to pick up the most anticipated Artist of the Year award.
In particular, one moment that caught the attention of fans worldwide was Jungkook‘s speech after the group won Artist of the Year. Fans were impressed with Jungkook’s confidence and presence while he was thanking ARMYs for the award.
Even when Jin had to take him away from the microphone to let the other members speak, Jungkook still showcased true confidence and charisma. In a broadcast after the show, he even got to finish the entire speech!
However, after the ceremony, netizens online started sharing their own praise about Jungkook during the speech. In particular, they shared how much they thought he’d grown in confidence over the years, especially when it comes to award shows.
On social media, fans shared various clips of Jungkook over the years at awards shows. It seemed obvious that, during the speeches, the group’s maknae always made sure that he was as far away as possible from the microphone.
Even during the AMAs red carpet, Jungkook was at the front of the group and seemed very reluctant to answer a question from the media. He chose to let leader RM take charge.
Yet, when he took to the stage in front of a huge crowd, for the first time since the pandemic started, Jungkook seemed right at home.
Considering how confident Jungkook is on stage when he performs, it always surprised fans at how shy and reluctant to speak he was when the group accepted awards.
However, fans couldn’t get over just how comfortable Jungkook looked during the AMAs, even though he was nervous and speaking in English.
