Nick Carter Joins The Judging Panel For ABC's 'Boyband'

The Backstreet Boys surprised quite a few people by making an appearance at ABC Upfront on Tuesday afternoon. Perhaps even more surprising was the announcement that our very own Nick Carter would be joining new ABC show, Boyband, as a judge this summer.

The 10-episode series will be a mix of X Factor and The Voice with contestants ultimately vying for a spot in the band and a record deal. Similarly to other reality shows of this style, the winners will be chosen by viewers at home with the judges, who will be referred to as architects, acting more as mentors. Nick isn’t the only familiar face on the panel; Emma Bunten AKA Baby Spice will be joining him to make the show a dream for any 90s kid.

We certainly can’t wait to see Nick back on our televisions every week and if his recent stint as guest judge on Dancing With The Stars is any indication of how he will be on Boyband, we are positive that these contestants are in good hands.

Stay tuned for details on air dates and more!
