The Tonight Show To TRL: Backstreet's Back On TV

As quickly as “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” has infiltrated the radio airwaves and multiple Top 40 charts, the Backstreet Boys have also started making multiple appearances in your home…. through the magic of television, that is.

Last week, Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ, and Nick made their first appearance on The Tonight Show since Jimmy Fallon has been hosting it in New York. No stranger to jamming with The Roots (remember that 2012 ‘Late Night’ performance?), the Boys added Fallon to the mix this time, performing “I Want It That Way” with classroom instruments in a performance that immediately went viral. The video of the performance reached #5 most popular videos on YouTube throughout the following weekend.

If you ever needed proof that Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way" is the world's most perfect pop song, listen to it being performed with classroom instruments,” PopSugar wrote. “Almost two decades after its release, the boys can still hit all those high notes and harmonies perfectly, and if anything, the track sounds even better with added maracas and glockenspiel.”

The goodness didn’t stop there. The Boys also ended the show on a high note (no pun intended) with a performance of “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”, garnering lots of social media attention.

“I am living! Can we please have the Backstreet Boys on every week,” a Twitter user wrote that night. If you missed the performances (or need an excuse to watch again), scroll down below!

Less than six hours following The Tonight Show appearance, we time traveled back to the year 1999… or at least it seemed that way. The Backstreet Boys made their return to a new version of MTV’s TRL. While the show is no longer a countdown of music videos with Carson Daly, most 90s girls remember Sway, who interviewed Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ and Nick for the entire half hour, reliving the moments that made some of the greatest TV in BSB history, even bringing back fans who formerly appeared with the guys!

...And creating new memories for some VERY lucky, unsuspecting fans who got “trapped” in an elevator with all five Backstreet Boys. Watch it all go down right here.

Don’t forget to watch the Boys rock Central Park on Good Morning America next Friday, July 13th on ABC! Check your local listings for times.

    My husband is my hero, he saved our marriage and my heart from an unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    The problem was that I jumped into marriage from a fresh breakup, I never allowed my heart to heal, that’s why I was heavily hunted and distracted to a point that I almost abandoned my husband and our 2 beautiful daughters to my ex. Look how stupid I was to think that my beloved husband of 5 years can be replaced by a bad ass ex-boyfriend.
    My husband proved that real men still exist despite all the embarrassment I brought to him, he didn’t let go, he rather worked with Dr. Wakina through his love spell to untie me from the unhealthy emotional attachment with my ex.
    Now my eyes are open to cherish the beautiful family I have, I also realised the meaning of true love. I’m hoping to do more than what Dr. Wakina via [email protected] did for me.
    Thanks to my husband for letting me share this story.
    Remain blessed.

    Am indeed very happy for the great help that Dr. Abaka rendered to me, I am here to give my testimony about a doctor who helped me in my life. I and my husband was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS for the pass 3 years, we went to many hospitals for cure but there was no solution, on till one faithful day , we saw a blog whereby Dr. Abaka cured a woman who also had herpes affection,we (Me and My HUSBAND) decided to contact him which we did, he asked us to buy some items, unfailingly we sent him the money he will need in buying the items required , He caste the spell and sent me some herbs. He asked me to go for check-up after 14 days of casting the spell, Luckily for me we were tested herpes negative, now I believe all these Testimonies about him on the internet, he is truly a great man, if you are going through the same problem and you need help you can contact the great Herbalist([email protected]) or phone /whats app +2349063230051.
