Backstreet Boys Perform “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” With James Corden: Watch
Just days after announcing their forthcoming Las Vegas residency, the Backstreet Boys stopped by the Late Late Show on Tuesday (September 27) to perform their hit “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).” And of course, James Corden joined in on all of the action. In fact, before the group came out on stage, the British show host professed his undying love for boy bands and promised to bring them back come hell or high water.
“I care about this maybe more than anything else on the planet,” Corden tells the crowd. “I’m talking proper boy bands. Five guys together. I’m talking about the cute one, the funny one, the nice one, the other one and the maverick who refused to play by the rules all living together in some weird mansion in Orlando”
He continued, “Now look, I’m aware that boy bands haven’t gone away. But now, they just stand onstage wearing skinny jeans and Vans sneakers. And some of them even have the audacity to pick up instruments! That is not what I want in a boy band, OK? I want matching outfits, synchronized dancing and way over-budget music videos!”
I’m assuming he was referring to One Direction with the Vans and skinny jeans description. In any case, watch the performance in all of it’s standardly cute, nostalgic glory above.
