James Corden Got to be a Backstreet Boy for a Hot Minute

James Corden apparently didn’t get the message to quit playing games.

Premier ’90s boyband, the Backstreet Boys, have called Las Vegas home for the last year and a half while they perform their residency, Backstreet Boys: Larger than Life.

During their Tuesday show at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, Nick, Howie, Kevin, Brian, and AJ received a 6th member to their group…

The host of The Late Late Show, James Corden, decided to check if any of the guys could use a break so that he could live out his boy band dream.

The “generous” offer wasn’t so well received, with Kevin saying, That’s really sweet. But, James, we’re the band.”


James was not gonna give up that easily, eventually making the quintet close their eyes and vote someone out — with Brian ending up being the “lucky” victim.

The Brit then proved to be the worst Backstreet Boy ever — messing up the choreography, interrupting a meet-and-greet with fans — but did, however, manage to belt out the vocals to Larger than Life, but dramatically quitting on stage.

Well, we guess he wanted it that way…
