“Dear Class of 2020” is a virtual commencement celebration for all the students that were not able to celebrate their graduations due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The “BTS Carpool Karaoke” video with James Corden won the Variety & Reality award. The video was the group’s installment of James Corden’s well-loved Carpool Karaoke series, where the seven members along with Corden drive around the city while singing various songs and answering questions.
Their third award was the Award for Music, General Virtual & Remote, for their virtual concert Map of the Soul ON:E. The online concert took place over two days, October 10-11, 2020, and totaled an attendance of 993,000 paid viewers from 191 different regions.
