The Backstreet Boys Perform At Home For A Good Cause

Sunday night was a treat for the Backstreet Boys and their fans as they took part in iHeartRadio’s Living Room Concert for America. Kevin, Howie, Brian, AJ, and Nick, all in their homes from East coast to West coast, performed their 1999 hit “I Want It That Way” like there was no distance between them at all.

“The apart-but-together sentiment made the pop classic even more rousing than usual,” Billboard wrote, while Twitter lit up with tweets about the joy the Boys’ performance gave them, as they became a trending topic for hours following their performance. Variety later revealed that, initially, the band sounded TOO good - read about the behind the scenes moments here.
