Backstreet Boys Blow Fans Away With Quarantine Performance of ‘I Want It That Way’

Backstreet Boys

Concerts and stadium events may be cancelled due to coronavirus, but that hasn’t stopped some of our favorite artists from coming together and putting on a show.

On Sunday night, Elton John hosted The iHeart Living Room Concert for America in an effort to raise money to support those who are struggling because of COVID-19.

The hour-long special, which aired commercial-free on FOX, featured a star-studded lineup of artists who performed from the comfort of their own homes.

Guests included Alicia Keys, Camila Capello, Tim McGraw, Demi Lovato, Shawn Mendez, and even Lady Gaga — each offering a message of hope and encouragement to fans at home.

One performance that left fans reeling was none other than the Backstreet Boys!

AJ McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, and Brian Littrell took us back with a reunited performance of their hit song, “I Want it That Way.”

The guys, who all performed from their own homes, defied distance and technology to come together for a remote rendition of this classic 90’s hit.

Kevin Richardson even enlisted the help of his sons, Mason and Maxwell, who immediately became honorary members of the boy band.
