We’ve been fangirling hard waiting for the premiere “Dead 7,” the zombie movie written by Nick Carter, starring members of *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, O-Town and 98 Degrees. And it just got even better. Nick, Howie Dorough, and AJ McLean of Backstreet Boys; Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone of *NSYNC; Jeff Timmons of 98 Degrees; and Erik-Michael Estrada from O-Town joined forces to record a song for the soundtrack.
The movie premieres this Friday, April 1st at 8pm on SyFy, from the people who brought you “Sharknado.” AKA this is already the best movie of 2016 and you better be tuned in on Friday night. Listen to “In The End” from the movie below!
Download the track for free here! We can only hope this is just the first time that these boybands will join forces!
Be sure to follow Secret Fangirls on Twitter for updates and live tweets from the movie!
Nick Carter’s “All American” Tour hit the Playstation Theatre in NYC over the weekend. We expected Nick to give 300% on tour, as he does with everything he does, but he was even better than we expected. The show was divided into three parts with a distinct style – rock star Nick played guitar to start off the night, he broke it down for a more acoustic set wearing a fedora, and ended the night showing off his dance moves. The show gave Nick a chance to show off his range from boyband pop to rock and back again.
Nick managed to find the perfect balance between his solo material and Backstreet Boys songs. He also threw in “One More Time,” from his project with Jordan Knight of NKOTB. While some solo artists refuse to even acknowledge the group or band they came from, Nick fully embraced his boyband heritage. He understands that while the crowd is definitely there to support and hear Nick’s new music, odds are they are BSB fans as well. This made for an insanely fun, high energy show as he surprised us with a mix of songs from all of his solo projects and a mix of Backstreet songs. We all got to party like we were “19 in 99!”
Brian Littrell made a surprise appearance on stage, eliciting lots of 1999 level screaming from the audience. He joined Nick for “I Want It That Way” and “Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely.” Honestly, the show could have ended right there, but the night was just getting started. Brian also let it slip that the guys already have six songs recorded for the next Backstreet Boys album! They’re set to put the finishing touches on it very, very soon.
Nick got to show off his moves from “Dancing With The Stars,” breaking out into a salsa number after “The Call.” He ended the night with a series of songs that showed of his lighter side – and Nick is clearly not afraid of make fun of himself or have a good time with his fans. He’s no stranger to being in front of large crowds but that’s really where Nick Carter shines – on a stage with his fans singing along with him!

Nick Carter’s “All American” Tour is stopping in NYC this weekend, and obviously we’ll be there fangirling out. As much as we love boybands, it’s also fun when they team up or go solo for other projects. As long as they come back together (DO YOU HEAR US JT?) Here are some of our favorite solo projects and duets from boyband members. Basically, Jordan Knight should just team up with everyone.
Nick Carter just dropped the music video for his brilliantly titled new single “19 in 99.” Don’t we all wish we could go back to 1999? Think of all the concerts and “TRL” tapings you could go to! We can’t decide which Nick in the video is our favorite, although we might have to go with Backstreet Nick dressed in all white. Look out for a familiar pizza delivery man in the video too. We can’t wait to hear this song on Nick’s upcoming solo tour! Check out all of the dates HERE! Watch “19 in 99” below!

Backstreet Boy Nick Carter has been killing it on “Dancing With The Stars” so far this season! Nick just released the music video for his new solo single, “I Will Wait,” from his upcoming album.

It’s boyband week over at Billboard.com, AKA the greatest thing ever. Every week should be boyband week. In honor of the occasion, Billboard staffers held a fantasy boyband draft, assembling their dream teams. For this week’s Friday Five, we decided to get in on the fun and do our own boyband draft and create 2 super boybands: J5 and *Big Time Boys on the Block°. The only rules were that you can’t pick 2 members from the same band. Check out our picks and vote for your favorite!
Team A: J5 (JC, Joey, James, Jeff and Jesse)
One of the greatest male vocalists, ever. He can still hit ALL the notes, and he hasn’t aged a day since “Bye Bye Bye.”
Just watch this performance from The Main Event Tour, and you’ll know why Joey is the MVP of any boyband. Those vocals. Those moves. Those abs.
We knew James was a national treasure during Big Time Rush’s run, but he further proved it in his run to the final 3 of “Dancing With The Stars.” Enjoy.
Jeff has had the most uh, interesting post-boyband career. He brings the moves for sure. Fun fact we somehow just discovered: He was part of a “man band” on VH1 called “Sureshot” with Chris Kirkpatrick, Rich Cronin and Bryan Abrams in 2007.
The most underrated former boyband member (Dreamstreet!). His last single, “Punch Drunk Recreation,” and the accompanying video (where J Mac basically leads his own boyband) have not gotten nearly enough love.
Team B: *Big Time Boys on the Block°
Nick has had his struggles in the past but he overcame them and continues to BRING IT every night on stage giving 110% during every show. He also likes to make up his own moves on stage which is always A+ in my book.
Do you watch NKOTV every week on A&E? NO?? You should. It’s the greatest night for television and you’ll see why Donnie Wahlberg is my top pick for boyband. He knows how to treat the fans, he’s great to his wife (secret fangirl: Jenny McCarthy) and his family. Plus – watch this video for further proof of A+ boybanding.
Another former boyband member who has a TV show about his own restaurant (“Raising The Bar” on A&E every Wednesday night.) Let’s face it, Nick Lachey was the best looking member of 98* and he’s been the most successful – aside from Jeff Timmons’ stripper revue.
Kendall has seamlessly transitioned into boyband member to acoustic singer-songwriter while not alienating any fans from either end of the spectrum. He’s got a good voice, and whether he wants to admit it or not – this boy can DANCE! Plus, he’s got great hair.
He appeared on Hannah Montana, dancing with the stars, various food critic reality shows, and he’s still the most underrated member of *N SYNC. Let’s not forget that Joey was also in “On The Line” with Lance.
We literally could not be more excited for the upcoming Backstreet Boys documentary! It’s in theaters January 30th, and is just the perfect pick-me-up during that dreaded post-Christmas, concert-less vortex known as January and February. Watch the official trailer below!
Make sure you practice your BSB choreography in the meantime, because if people aren’t dancing in the aisles in the theater we will be VERY disappointed.
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.
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.
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.
Watch Nick & Knight sing “Paper” live below.
Catch Nick & Knight when they roll through your town. You won’t forget it! Check out the rest of the tour dates HERE.
