Megan made the announcement Saturday via her Twitter to explain to fans why she could no longer attend the AMAs at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The ceremony would feature the first live performance of the remix version of “Butter” with BTS. Megan’s “Butter” remix featuring the K-pop group dropped this summer after a legal battle with her record label 1501 Certified Entertainment.
“Hotties I was so excited to go to the AMAs and perform with BTS but due to an unexpected personal matter I can no longer attend,” she wrote. “I’m so sad! I can’t wait to get on stage with my guys and perform #BTS_Butter soon!”
Megan has been nominated for three awards at this year’s ceremony: Favorite Female Hip-Hop Artist, Favorite Hip-Hop Album for “Good News,” and Favorite Trending Song for “Body.” BTS has been nominated for Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop Duo and Favorite Pop Song for ‘Butter’. Olivia Rodrigo leads the field with seven nominations, while The Weeknd follows with six. Other top nominees are Doja Cat and Giveon. The AMA ceremony will be hosted by Cardi B and will feature appearances from the likes of Rodrigo, Bad Bunny with Tiny and Julieta Venegas, Tyler The Creator and Carrie Underwood.
