The 37-year-old was pulled onstage by the group to help perform their 2000 hit “Shape of My Heart. »

It's hard to believe that the Backstreet Boys have been together for more than 20 years! The group - Aj McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, and Brian Littrell - first formed in Orlando in 1993 and has been making our hearts swoon ever since. Over the past two decades the boy band has faced many changes (including Kevin's departure from 2006-2012), but they have also proven how timeless they really are. From a plethora catchy tunes to their out-of-this-world concerts, it's clear to see why the Backstreet Boys are one of the best boy bands around. See their larger-than-life evolution here. »

The Backstreet Boys have officially kicked off their long-awaited 'Larger Than Life' residency at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas and one fangirl fulfilled her 16-year dream to come face-to-face with her idols again -- 96-year-old Bsb devotee Adeline Stevens!
The longtime fan rocked up to The Axis Theater with her 61-year-old daughter, Karen, and 32-year-old granddaughter, Kim, where she was thrilled to meet the group before their show.
“That was amazing! It was a fantastic,” Adeline told Et afterwards, still a little shell-shocked from the meet-and-greet. “I love those guys!”
Unlike many of us, who discovered the boy band in their teens and will still be rocking up to their shows in their nineties, Adeline was the ripe ol’ age of 80 when she first fell in love with Nick Carter, Aj McLean, Howie Dorough, Kevin Richardson and Brian Littrell.

Apologies to the Britney Spears fans in advance: You’ll never want to hear me say, we like it this way. The Backstreet Boys opened their “Larger than Life” Las Vegas residency on Wednesday night in the same Axis Theater at Planet Hollywood as Spears by dwarfing their former ’90s pop contemporary in terms of live, viable talent.

If you didn’t know any better, someone would have thought it was 1999 all over again in Las Vegas on Wednesday night — and that is no insult. This time, though, there was no Carson Daly and no Trl, but there was a proper boy band on stage. Six months after announcing they were beginning a 26-show residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, the Backstreet Boys took the stage to 4,600 screaming fans. What happened next was a 100-minute trip down memory lane… which was perfect since Bsb’s fans, well, want it that way. »

Backstreet is certainly back, alright.
Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, Aj McLean and Kevin Richardson took a break from rehearsals for their upcoming Larger Than Life Las Vegas residency gig to sit down with Et's Nischelle Turner and reveal their surprising secret to staying in harmony for more than two decades.
"It's like a marriage," Richardson confessed, with his bandmates quickly echoing the sentiment.
"We go to counseling," Carter added, revealing that it was Dorough who came up with the idea. "We talk things out," he explained.
"It's so funny -- as time goes on, the issues kind of add up," Carter said. "But it's like family."
Richardson chimed in to note that a manager had first suggested the idea early in their career, but it took 24 years for them to follow through. "One of our first managers suggested, 'You guys better get into therapy now, because you're going to need it later,'" he recalled »
