It was a ‘90s dream come true when the Backstreet Boys performed their hit “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” Tuesday night on “The Late Late Show.” And it’s all thanks to James Corden, who is making it his mission to bring back boy bands.
“With visual albums gone, we can bring back something that I care about more than anything else on the planet. We are bringing back boy bands,” he said. “And I’m talking proper boy bands. I’m talking five guys together. I’m talking the cute one, the funny one, the nice one, the other one and the maverick that refused to play by the rules.”
The Backstreet Boys, who are certainly making a comeback with their newly announced Vegas residency, then performed the single from their second album, released in 1997. Corden even joined the boys on stage.
Backstreet’s back, all right?
