Backstreet’s back, alright!
After six years, the entire group that make up the famous boy band – Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough, A.J. McLean, Kevin Richardson – reunited for their Friday performance and heated things up on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert series in New York City’s Central Park.
Backstreet member Richardson, 40, who rejoined the music group a few months ago after quitting back in 2006 told the crowd, "I'm a person that follows my heart and gut, and my heart said this is the time."
The '90s iconic group also belted their famous hits "I Want It That Way," “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” and “I Want It That Way.”
They also belted their love ballad “Incomplete."
After the performance, GMA anchor, Josh Elliott, referred to co-host Robin Robert – who left her show on Thursday to start medical treatment and lost her 88-year-old mom, Lucimarian – said into the microphone, “Robin, that one was for you.”
Even though the boy band has sold 130 million albums across the globe, the group has had their fair share of ups and downs.
In February, 32-year-old Carter lost his 25-year-old sister Leslie Carter after a drug overdose.
Back in July 2011, McLean, 34, went into a rehab facility “for personal reasons.”
But there’s been a turnaround for the group, who has two Backstreet little ones on the way – Dorough, 39, will welcome his second son next year, while McLean expects a baby girl in November.
The quintet is working on a new studio album will be released next spring to be impeccably timed with their 20th anniversary together.
