When legends meet legends!
The lovefest all began when V, Jimin, RM, Jin, Jungkook, Suga and J-Hope took the stage and declared it was a "dream" to meet and present Jackson with one of the night's most prestigious accolades, the Worldwide Inspiration Award.
"I'm very excited and honored by this wonderful award," Jackson said in her acceptance speech. "I'm deeply humbled by the idea that I've inspired others."
"I dream of an immediate future when women will no longer be controlled, manipulated, or abused," she continued. "I dream of the end of bigotry and discrimination in any form. I dream of a world in which we join hands across all borders and unite as one. Finally, I dream of a planet where hatred turns to compassion, tolerance turns to understanding, and a healing and lasting peace prevails.”
But the band's time with Jackson didn't end there! The K-pop group also had a chance to chat with her backstage, and it appears the admiration they share for each other is mutual. The "Made for Now" singer couldn't help herself from documenting the meet and greet for her fans on social media.
Naturally, BTS fans loved it. Check out some of their reactions below:
