10-year-old me is fangirling at this moment!
Because "Back-Sync" just debuted this past weekend! You guessed it! "Back-Sync" is a combination of the well-known boy bands, NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys, both groups who exploded onto the music scene in the late '90s and early 2000s.
This past weekend, "Back-Sync" performed the popular NSYNC song "Bye Bye Bye" and the Backstreet Boy's hit track "I Want It That Way." The songs were shown at Los Angeles's Friday night Pride event called Bingo Under the Stars, a celebration for L.A. Pride and The Trevor Project. "Back-Sync" was composed of NSYNC's Joey Fatone and Lance Bass, along with the Backstreet Boy's AJ McLean and Nick Carter.
Fatone summed up his take on the combo group, saying, "It's interesting to have the four of us knuckleheads do something together, which you've never seen before .... BSB fans are very loyal, so we're going, 'We get it - certain people liked one band or the other back in the day, but now it's okay to like both.'"
Carter seemed to agree, saying, "We were just on stage going, 'Maybe we should do a supergroup and tour and do an album .... We've come together for a cause greater than ourselves, so let's let it blossom into something."
Sign me up for that tour!
McLean had a similar idea, saying, "Fans still want a Backstreet/NSYNC tour, but it's got to be all 10 of us... It's the only way to make it work, so I think he'd be sleeping on it if [Timberlake] didn't do it, but he's a dad doing this thing and I completely respect that. This four is a dream team right now."
A tour would definitely be interesting. During "Back-Sync's" performance at Bingo Under the Stars, they were able to nail the dance choreography associated with each song, an aspect fans have always appreciated from their favorite boy bands.
Both NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys lit up the boyband genre almost 20 years ago. Among their performed "Bye Bye Bye" and "I Want It That Way," they each, respectively, had other chart-topping tracks, including "Larger than Life," "It's Gonna Be Me," and "Show Me the Meaning of Being Lonely."
It would definitely be amazing if these two groups could come together for a tour.
Would you be joining that tour? Let us know in the comments!
