Is BTS going to the Billboard Music Awards 2022?

Why is BTS not going to the Billboard Music Awards 2022?
BTS members RM, Suga, V, Jin, Jimin, J-Hope, and Jungkook performed a four-day Permission to Dance on Stage performance in Las Vegas in April 2022. They have decided not to return to the city for the BBMA on May 15, as they are preoccupied with the release of their new album. Proof, their next album, will be released on June 10th. They will not attend any award shows until then, and if they win, they will give their victory speech by video.
