Kevin Scott Richardson: 2006, I quit the group. I wanted to just be a normal guy for a while. I didn't feel inspired as much as I used to. I didn't love it and didn't have the passion that I used have, and, therefore, I left.

Not just another boy band
1 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

As a longtime fan, this documentary was a must-see for me. And needless to say, I was not disappointed. Show 'Em What You're Made Of offers a very honest look at the roller-coaster life of a boy band whose longevity and success defied all expectations. No truth is sugar-coated in this film as the boys-turned-men give us a glimpse into their childhoods, their rise to superstardom and, ultimately, their fall and return into the spotlight. From AJ's drug and alcohol abuse to Brian's struggle with his singing voice and the band's conflicts with their first manager Lou Pearlman, the BSB hold nothing back as they recount their 20 year-long journey as one of the most successful recording groups of all time.

Tears are shed, hurtful words are exchanged during arguments, but ultimately, the bond between all the guys is stronger than ever. They're a group, but above all, they're brothers. And that's what makes the Backstreet Boys so special.
