As a hopelessly devoted ’90s baby, nothing makes me happier than the fact that the Backstreets Boys are still together and kickin’ it all of these years later! Sure, they’ve released some new music over the years, but they’ve fully embraced the songs (and dancing!) that made them an iconic boy band staple and therefore are constantly performing their hits on the regular.
So, imagine my glee when the guys recently appeared on The Tonight Show and took part in Jimmy Fallon’s classic “Classroom Instruments” skit where they performed their ultimate bop “I Want It That Way” while dressed like actual angels!
At one point Brian and Jimmy flawlessly swap instruments because of #rawtalent.
Brb… starting a petition that requires Nick Carter to always be holding and/or playing a mini tambourine.
Kevin was a real mood.
At one point during Kevin’s solo, Jimmy did this ‘lil move, which I find to be extremely appropriate for Kevin’s recent Matrix vibe.
Honestly, it’s been a tough week for us ’90s kids with the recent closing of Toy ‘R’ Us and this was the exact thing I needed to bring that nostalgia back. Thank you Backstreet!!
Check out the video below featuring the vocal stylings of Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, and The Tonight Show Crew.
Even though the band has embraced the songs that gave them their fame and notoriety, that doesn’t mean they don’t want to stop making new music. The band also gave a live performance of their latest single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” which is hopefully the start of the next chapter for Backstreet Boys’ career.
You can check out that full performance below!
You can currently catch the Backstreet Boys in Las Vegas where they are in the midst of their Backstreet Boys: Larger Than Life residency until November 2018!
