The Backstreet Boys Killed It on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ (VIDEO)


Everyboooooodaaay! Rock yo’ bodaaaayy! Everyboooowwwdaaay! Rock yo’ bowwdaayy riiiight

Backstreet’s back, alriiiiieeeeght!

Sorry. I was having a moment. Anyway, Backstreet’s back (alright).

The Backstreet Boys appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week to play some tunes from their new album In a World Like This, and they’ve still got it! They might want to consider changing their name to the Backstreet Men though, because they’ve definitely grown up a lot since their heyday back in the ’90s. One of the songs they performed on JKL, called “Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of),” was written by Kevin Richardson and A.J. McLean for their children.

It’s good to see they’re still dancing though.

BSB’s betting on their new, more mature style appealing to a fan base far removed from the screaming teenage girls who once swooned over them. Well, maybe not so far removed – just grown up.

“It’s not screaming teens anymore,” Brian Littrell told MTV News earlier this week. “It’s more soccer moms.”

The Backstreet Boys are kicking off their North American tour this week. Will you be catching a show?
