ARMYs react to Olivia Rodrigo and BTS’ V’s cute Grammys moment

The 2022 Grammy Awards night was never short of great and epic moments. But there seems to be one moment that broke the internet: a cute interaction between BTS’ Kim Tae-hyung (popularly known as V), and Olivia Rodrigo.

In case you missed it: the boys of BTS channeled their inner James Bond during the performance of their hit single, ‘Butter’, at the 2022 Grammys. The group delivered a heist-themed performance with Jungkook descending from the roof and the remaining six members—Suga, RM, J-hope, Jin, Jimin, and V—sitting in the crowd.

Their performance kicked off with V sitting beside the “SOUR” singer where the two shared a flirty interaction.

In the video, V can be seen leaning toward Rodrigo, who’s been smiling, and whispering in her ear. Shortly after, Rodrigo gasped, and V showed her a card. The Korean pop star then pointed to the stage, signaling the beginning of the group’s performance.

Of course, the pair’s skit didn’t go unnoticed. It went viral, sending their fans into overdrive.



Many fans also expressed how Rodrigo managed to stay calm during the whole interaction, while others wanted to be in the Disney star’s place.

One fan even pointed out how V wanted to have a Filipina girlfriend, saying: “[R]emember when [T]aehyung said he wanted a Filipina girlfriend, and now knowing Olivia has Filipino blood in her roots, I’m not crying you are, and they have a good chemistry.”

Fans also made references to Rodrigo’s songs, “traitor” and “jealousy, jealousy.” TBH, we’re probably going to listen to those songs too as we cure our broken hearts.

On the other hand, some were also curious as to what V had just whispered to the Grammy Award-winning singer’s ear.

BTS was nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Butter.” However, the award went to “Kiss Me More” by Doja Cat and SZA.

Rodrigo, on the other hand, took home three gramophones for winning Best New Artist, Pop Vocal Album for her full-length debut album “SOUR” and Pop Solo Performance for “drivers license.” She was also nominated for Album of the Year for “SOUR,” Song of the Year and Record of the Year for “drivers license,” and Best Music Video for “Good 4 U.”
