Unabashed boy band lover James Corden fulfilled his dreams by performing “Everybody” with The Backstreet Boys.
On Tuesday’s episode of “The Late Late Show”, Corden welcomed The Backstreet Boys to the stage, then surprised fans by jumping into the band’s performance – complete with choreographed dance moves.
“I care about this more than maybe anything else on the planet: We are bringing back boy bands,” Corden says, teasingly. “I’m talking proper boy bands. Five guys together: I’m talking about the cute one, the funny one, the nice one, the other one and the maverick who refused to play by the rules – all living together in some weird mansion in Orlando.”
“I’m aware that boy bands haven’t gone away, right? But now, they just stand onstage wearing skinny jeans and Vans sneakers, and some of them even have the audacity to pick up instruments. That is not what I want in a boy band. I want matching outfits, synchronized dancing and way-over-budget music videos,” he says before unveiling The Backstreet Boys as they launch into their 1997 hit, “Everybody”.
