Backstreet Boys Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of Documentary To Be Released January 30th!

Backstreet’s Back, alright?  After teasing us with the trailer on tour for the last two summers, the Backstreet Boys movie finally has a release date!  “Show ‘Em What You’re Made Of” will be released in theaters and video on demand January 30th, 2015!  The documentary is a behind the scenes look at the best selling boyband of all time, who are celebrating a remarkable 21 years together this year.  It was filmed over a two year period, including their worldwide “In A World Like This Tour.”  So, you just might see yourself in the movie!

Watch the trailer below and start planning that BSB screening party with your fellow fangirls now.  And brush up on your dance moves, because there better be dancing in the movie theater aisles.

The documentary will premiere later in 2015 on VH1 as part of VH1 Rock Docs.

The Friday Five: Halloween Music Videos

Happy Halloween, Fangirls!  This week, we’ve been listening to pretty much only Country music but we decided to get into the spirit of Halloween and bring you our favorite Halloween themed music videos.

1. Backstreet Boys – “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)”
BSB really went all out and set the standard for Halloween themed music videos.  Jekyl & Hyde, a Mummy, a werewolf, the Phantom Of The Opera, and Dracula come together for a choreographed dance filled costume ball of epic proportions.  Why are they in costume?  Nobody knows.  And full disclosure, we still know these dance moves and definitely danced along at the BSB tours.

2. Big Time Rush – “Big Night”
The BTR Halloween episode is pretty amazing – we love Kendall as a werewolf, and James the vampire vs the vampire slayer.   Throwback to the BSB video?

3. Kristian Bush – “Trailer Hitch”
Zombies have taken over this country star’s new video and the only way to stop them is by the soothing sound of his guitar!

4. 5SOS – “Don’t Stop”
Doesn’t everyone want to dress up as their favorite super hero on Halloween?   Well, Aussie pop punkers 5SOS just gave you five brand new favorite super heroes. 

5. Patent Pending – “Dance Til We Die”
When we said that the Long Islanders in Patent Pending went all out for videos, we weren’t exaggerating.  The bands video for “Dance Til We Die” is perfect for any Halloween bash.  Gore and zombies take over as the band sings “and the dancing dead are taking over, never gonna make it out!”

 

Nick & Knight Live At The Best Buy Theater in NYC

Nick Carter and Jordan Knight brought their duet project, Nick & Knight, to the Best Buy Theater in New York City on Friday night and it was everything we could have imagined and more for two boy band members teaming up for an album and tour.

During the concert, Jordan kept picking on Nick for being a trooper and powering through the concert even though Nick had almost lost his voice and was having a hard time singing.  That didn’t slow down his dance moves though, which he showcased in their terrific 90s medley mid-concert.  We might be biased but the best part of the concert might have been that cover of Ginuwine’s “Pony” that had the audience screaming with delight – like it was 1996 all over again! Watch their 90s medley below, which on its own is worth the price of admission.

P1020072

Nick and Jordan slowed things down a little when they broke out an acoustic guitar and keyboard to sing one of the most heartfelt songs on the album – “Halfway There.”  Making sure to give their larger than life fans the right stuff, Nick and Jordan also covered their boy band hits “I Want It That Way” and “Step By Step.”

While we’re sad Jordan didn’t sing “Stingy” (Donnie was busy filming his TV show on Friday night), the sold out audience was treated to “Give It To You” and “Larger Than Life” featuring Nick Carter on the electric guitar.

Nick & Knight Celebrate Album Release at Highline Ballroom

Backstreet Boys’ resident heartthrob and newlywed Nick Carter and New Kids On The Block’s Jordan Knight had so much fun on the NKOTBSB tour they decided to team up and keep the party going.  Nick & Knight are teaming up for an album and tour this fall. The duo celebrated the release of their debut album with a party at Highline Ballroom in NYC.

Nick and Jordan performed quite a few  songs from the album including “Switch”, “Halfway There” (with Jordan on piano) and  “Deja Vu” which was co-written by Brandyn Burnette!  They also took questions from the fans, revealing more about their upcoming tour. (Trust us, it sounds amazing!)  Jonathan Knight came out to support his brother and even mingled with the crowd, taking selfies with everyone.  Nick brought out his own laptop and did double-duty, showing off his DJ skills during the release party.

Nick and Jordan even previewed some choreography they’ve been working on for the tour! Watch a live performance of “Switch” below! (The track, one of our favorites on the album, was co-written by Bruno Mars)

They said they will play solo material for the Nick & Knight tour later this fall and topped the evening off with Jordan performing “Give It To You.”  We are still fangirling over this, because this was our JAM in 1999, and we voted for it on “TRL” almost daily.

The Friday Five: Songs Of The Week

We’ve spent most of the last 2 weeks at the US Open, our favorite time of the year.  Here’s what we’ve been listening to this week!  We’ll be back to regular blogging next week after the finals.

1. Demi Lovato – “Really Don’t Care”
We think this is the US Open DJ’s favorite song, because we heard it at least five times a day.  Or maybe he’s just really excited about the Demi World Tour, which kicks off tomorrow?

2. MKTO – “Classic”
MKTO performed at Arthur Ashe Kids Day this year, getting the US Open off to a fun start with this classy jam.

3. Hunter Hayes – “Wildcard”
This should be the theme song for every player that gets a wild card into a tournament.   Would have been a perfect song for Hunter to perform at Arthur Ashe Kids Day!  But we were totally okay with hearing “Tattoo” twice.  Tickets are on sale now for the “Tattoo (Your Name) Tour!”

4. Nick & Knight – “Switch”
We got a little break from the tennis action on Wednesday when we headed to Nick & Knight’s album release show at the Highline.  The show was a preview of what to expect on their tour this fall, and trust us, you don’t want to miss it.  Their harmonies, choreography, and bromance are amazing.

5. NKOTB – “Single” & Backstreet Boys “The One”
Another US Open DJ favorite is “Viva La Vida” by Coldplay.  Which just brings back memories of the NKOTBSB tour opener mashup of NKOTB’s “Single” and Backstreet Boys’ “The One.”  So naturally we just start singing NKOTBSB anytime we hear it.

The Friday Five: Nick & Knight’s Greatest Hits

In case you haven’t heard, Nick & Knight’s debut album will be released next week!  The album, out September 2nd, is a collaboration between all time boy band greats Nick Carter and Jordan Knight.   In celebration of the album, here’s a look at our favorite Nick & Knight songs and collaborations.  If you’re in NYC, you can celebrate the album release with Nick & Knight at Highline Ballroom!  Get more info here.  You can pre-order Nick & Knight’s album on iTunes now!

1.  Jordan Knight – “Give It To You”
Jordan’s first solo hit was a smash on TRL back in the day, although looking back we probably shouldn’t have been singing this song.  Oh well.  It was co-written by Robin Thicke, so it all makes sense now.

2. Jordan Knight featuring Donnie Wahlberg – “Stingy”
Nick & Knight’s album isn’t the first time he’s teamed up with a fellow boy band member.  We love this collaboration between Jordan & Donnie.

3. Nick Carter – “Just One Kiss”
While Nick’s solo career never reached the height of Jordan’s, he did release his 2nd solo album in 2011, including this catchy lead single.

4. NKOTBSB – “Don’t Turn Out The Lights”
The start of the Carter-Knight bro-mance began in 2010 when the supergroup, NKOTBSB was formed, AKA the greatest thing to happen in boy band history.

5. Nick & Knight – “One More Time”
And the second greatest thing to happen in boy band history: the first single released by the duo!  We can’t wait to see them on tour this fall.  Check out all the dates here!

 

Nick & Knight Album Release Party at Highline Ballroom 9/3!

We’re less than 2 weeks away from the release of Nick & Knight’s album, and what better way to celebrate than with an album release party at one of our favorite NYC venues, Highline Ballroom?   The party (not clear if they’ll be performing or not since any concert with Nick Carter and Jordan Knight is a PARTY) will be on Wednesday, September 3rd.

Nick & Knight’s self titled album will be released on September 2nd.  You can pre-order on iTunes now!  Watch the video for their single “One More Time” below.

Backstreet Boys Wrap Up In A World Like This Tour at Jones Beach: What’s Next?

Last night marked the last date on the North American leg of Backstreet Boys’ In A World Like Tour.  The tour, which started last summer in celebration of the band’s 20th anniversary, has ended up being the longest in BSB history.  As they said to the packed crowd at Jones Beach, this tour surprised their agents, critics and even them:  it’s amazing to see how much love and support they still have after all these years!  They played all of their hits, as well as tracks off of their new album, “In A World Like This,” as the audience partied like it was 1999.  A Backstreet Boys concert is like one giant singalong/dance party, with 15,000 of your closest friends.

About halfway through the concert, it sunk in that we wouldn’t be seeing the BSB on tour for a while.  But then we realized us Backstreet fan girls have a lot of other things to look forward to this year!

Backstreet Boys:  The Movie
A documentary on the BSB, filmed mostly last year during their 20th anniversary “reunion,” was announced last year, and we are still impatiently waiting for a release date!  The trailer for the movie has been shown during the IAWLT tour since last summer.  Now that this leg of the tour is over, we are hoping we will finally get a release date!   And an excuse to sing and dance in the movie theater.

Nick and Knight Album and Tour!
Nick Carter is so much fun to watch on stage, because he just brings his A-game each and every night.  He tends to do his own choreography, and is moving non-stop on stage.  You can see the pure joy he has in performing.  He’s teaming up with NKOTB’s Jordan Knight for an album and tour this fall, titled Nick & Knight!  Jordan also BRINGS IT each night on stage, so we cannot WAIT to see what these two will be up to on tour.  It’s going to be amazing.

“I Heart Nick Carter”
This isn’t Nick’s first foray into the world of reality TV (House of Carters anyone?), but this time around the show focus on Nick’s life with his new bride, Lauren Kitt, rather than Carter family drama.  We will only watch reality shows that star current or former boy band members, so obviously we have already been counting down to the show’s premiere!  Watch the first look below!   “I Heart Nick Carter” premieres on September 10th at 10pm on Vh1!

Stay tuned for updates on the rest of Backstreet’s  upcoming projects!  Be sure to follow Backstreet Boys & Secret Fangirls on Twitter for more updates!

The Friday Five: Backstreet Boys’ Best Videos

This weekend marks the official start of summer, which means concert season is in full swing!  And we’re seeing the Backstreet Boys on Sunday!  It’s hard to believe BSB have been together for 21 years now, and after all this time they’re still going strong.  And they’re one of the few bands that have never let us down over the years.  We love that they brought back their original music video choreography for tour.  In honor of the In a World Like This Tour, here are our five favorite BSB videos!  (It was extremely hard to not make this a Friday Ten…)

1.  “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)”
This is probably the most iconic boy band video of ALL TIME.  Why are they monsters?  Nobody knows.  But seriously, you haven’t lived until you’ve seen Backstreet Boys perform “Everybody” live, with the entire crowd doing the choreography.   And have you caught the ending of “This Is The End?”  Apparently in heaven everyone knows the “Everybody” dance.

2. “Larger Than Life”
Budgets for music videos were much bigger in the 90s, like in this video when BSB went to outer space.   AJ is also probably the only man on earth who can pull off a mesh cropped top.  (He’s got the abs for it!)   We’re still not sure why they always insist on keeping Nick so under wraps in these videos (first he’s a mummy, now a robot?)

3. “I Want It That Way”
The video has over 98 million views on YouTube for a reason. Another iconic boy band video, which has been spoofed by Blink-182 and paid homage to by Big Time Rush.   We still get chills every time we hear Nick sing The Note.  (You know the one).   And that sad fangirl wave to Brian at the end?  We totally know your pain.

4. “Quit Playing Games With My Heart”
Otherwise known as that video where it starts raining and they dance around and get  their button down shirts and baggy pants soaking wet for no reason.   Howie D just totally takes it off.  Poor Brian had to keep his shirt buttoned because of his scar from heart surgery!  We are full of important 90s trivia facts like this, which we probably learned from TRL, Making the Video or Popup Video.

5. “As Long As You Love Me”
The CHAIR DANCE!  One of our fondest memories of middle school is when all the boys in our class blasted this song from their walkman, and attempted to recreate this chair dance during homeroom.  The key word being attempted.

Bonus. “We’ve Got It Goin’ On”
This might be the best song to dance to, ever.   And their wardrobe is on point.  Layered denim and leather?  Check.  This is also the song with the prayer dance.

Just do yourself a favor and head to the Backstreet Boys Vevo page and hit play all, it’s Friday.   We’ll be rehearsing our choreography for Sunday’s show.
