BTS scooped up the most trophies of the night on Saturday at the Mnet Asian Music Awards, the region’s largest music awards ceremony.

The event known as MAMA, which was offered as a global live stream telecast via YouTube and a host of other platforms, also hailed artists such as Ed Sheeran and Wanna One. The honors for BTS included album of the year, artist of the year, song of the year and worldwide icon of the year.

“For all of those who had difficult times this year, to share strength and comfort, we tried new things in making music and we worked really hard,” BTS said during their acceptance speech. “‘Butter’ and ‘Permission to Dance’ gained enormous love this year, we will share this honor with everyone who worked hard to make great music and performances with us.”

Singer and TV personality Lee Hyori, MAMA’s first female host, opened the ceremony that originated from Hong Kong, as MAMA has since 2012. She was followed by a performance by fourth-generation idols Hyunjin of Stray Kids, Wooyoung of ATEEZ, Yeji of ITZY, Yeonjun of TOMORROW X TOGETHER, Karina of aespa and Heeseung of Enhypen.

Additionally, “Bad Habits” singer Sheeran performed a mashup of his hit single along with “Shivers” from his new album “Equals.”
