Backstreet Boys Reunite For Live Performance

Every 90s kid’s dream come true – their favorite boy band, The Backstreet Boys reunited for a special 5-song medley for NBC’s Undateable.

The 5-member band, consisting of A. J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell performed LIVE and gave the audience a medley of 5 of their hits including Larger Than Life, Everybody (Backstreet’s Back), Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely and I Want It That Way for a skit that they aptly titled “The Backstreet Boys Walk In To A Bar”.

But it wasn’t only a throwback performance that they were there for. They discussed a range of topics, including their NINTH studio album that has a pop-and-R&B tone to it.

Last month, there was rife speculation about them joining with the Spice Girls for a reunion of the year. That, too, they talked about in detail, letting Billboard know their plans for this year.

Another bit of advice that they threw in was some fatherly talk to One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson, as he welcomed his first son with his partner a few weeks ago.

Undateable is currently one of NBC’s top shows and was just wrapping up it’s third season. The Backstreet Boys weren’t the only stars who rendered some of their talent for the season finale. Other performers included Ed Sheeran, Weezer, Meghan Trainor and Charlie Puth, among others.

Howie from the band spoke about the album they are currently working on, saying that they have already finished recording 5 tracks. They are currently working with producer Ron Laffitte  of OneRepublic and Alicia Keys fame.

Regarding their reunion with Britain’s top girl band of the 90s, the Spice Girls, Howie continued that they had spoken to Mel B when she was a judge on America’s Got Talent and she was very enthusiastic about them performing together, considering they both shot to fame at around the same time.
