In news that's larger than life for anyone who grew up in the 1990s, The Backstreet Boys announced plans to bring the group's world tour to North America beginning in May.
"Due to overwhelming demand on Facebook and Twitter, Backstreet's back, all right!" sang the group -- comprised of Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson -- on Friday's episode of "Good Morning America."

Also of note: Avril Lavigne will tour with The Backstreet Boys, because what the hell?
The Boys also announced the tour on Facebook:
