Grammys: BTS Wins Over Social Media
The K-pop band was the most tweeted about group of the night, while other popular attendees according to social media included Lady Gaga, Camila Cabello, Shawn Mendes and Cardi B.
BTS may not have won any awards during Sunday night's 61st annual Grammy Awards ceremony, but they definitely won over social media.
The K-pop group presented best R&B album to H.E.R., which was the most-tweeted-about moment of the night. The band also managed to be the most-tweeted-about act in attendance. Many fans took to social media throughout the night to point out the members in the audience, notably when they were spotted dancing during the Dolly Parton tribute performance.
Drake scored the second-most-tweeted-about moment of the night when he accepted the best rap song award for "God's Plan." During his acceptance speech, the rapper was cut off by the show's producers. While he was heard saying, "But..." before the broadcast cut to a commercial break, the producers later said that Drake "took a natural pause in his speech," which led them to believe that he was done.
Post Malone and Red Hot Chili Peppers' performance of "Rockstar," "Stay" and "Dark Necessities" was the third most popular moment of the night on Twitter, while Dan + Shay's stripped-down performance of "Tequila" scored the No. 4 spot.
Cardi B's win in the best rap album category for Invasion of Privacy was the fifth-most-tweeted moment of the show. She made history as the first female solo rapper to win the award. During her acceptance speech, Cardi B clutched husband Offset's hand as she talked about their daughter. "When I found out I was pregnant, my album was not complete. We were like, 'We have to get this album done so I can shoot these videos while I'm still not showing.' And it was very long nights," she said.

Camila Cabello scored the No. 3 spot, while Shawn Mendes was the fourth-most-tweeted-about star and Cardi B followed in the No. 5 spot.
