After waxing poetic about his love for 90s boy bands on the Late Late Show earlier this week, host James Corden surprised his studio audience with an electrifying performance from one of the most iconic boy bands of all time: The Backstreet Boys.
“Now with visual albums gone, it means we can bring something back, something I care about…more than anything else on the planet,” Corden began, addressing the camera straight on. “We are bringing back boy bands.”
After the audience broke out into applause, Corden clarified that he wasn’t referring to current boy bands that just “stand on stage” wearing “skinny jeans and Van sneakers,” but to the golden age of “proper boy bands [with] matching outfits, synchronized dancing and way over-budget music videos.”
He concluded: “I want to bring boy bands back and I want it to happen right now! So let’s bring back the top-selling boy band of all time: The Backstreet Boys!”
The curtain then lifted and the original members of the legendary group broke into their classic hit, “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).”
Not one to be left out of a group sing-along, Corden quickly joined the boys and together they rocked out to the tune with some impressive vocals and sickening choreography.
