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: 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!

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.

Tickets and VIP Packages go on sale this Saturday, August 23rd at 10AM at NickAndKnight.com.

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.

Backstreet Boys vs *NSYNC Feud in 2014: Why Can’t We All Get Along?

Back in the late 90s and early aughts, the Backstreet Boys vs *NSYNC feud was a very real thing. Across the world, middle school girls everywhere (OK and elementary, high school and college..) pledged their allegiance to one boy band, and one alone. This was even more serious than choosing a faction in Divergent. Did you prefer JT’s crunchy bleached curls? Or Nick’s platinum bowl cut?   It was one or the other, you couldn’t have both.

We always (not so) secretly loved both bands. If anyone asked it was all about *NSYNC, but we loved Backstreet just as much and still do. I guess you could say that we are Divergent: we are simply not made to love just one boy band. Each group offered something different: where would we be without JC hitting that note in “Bye Bye Bye?”   And Nick in “I Want It That Way?”

We loved *NSYNC’s dance moves and swag (it takes guts to pull off a down vest filled with cash and silver lipstick) and Backstreet Boys harmonies and over the top music videos.

But it’s not 1999 anymore, it’s 2014.  Can’t we all just get along?  There is more than enough boy band love to go around!

You can catch Backstreet Boys on their In a World Like This Tour across North America this summer, as well as Justin Timberlake’s 20/20 World Tour!  And you know we are never giving up hope for that *NSYNC reunion tour…

Be sure to follow *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys and each and every boy band that is your fire and one true desire on Twitter for more updates!

Backstreet Boys Announce Summer 2014 North American Tour on GMA

We’re so glad we made the switch from The Today Show to Good Morning America recently – GMA seems to get all of the important fangirl announcements.  Like this morning, when Backstreet Boys revealed they will be heading back out on a North American tour this summer!   We were getting majorly concerned that it was already March and we had no boyband tours to look forward to this year (We even made a list of forgotten bands who could reunite) so we are so excited that Backstreet’s Back in 2014!  This will be their second North American tour since Kevin Richardson rejoined the group last year, just in time for BSB’s 20th Anniversary.   Avril Lavigne will be joining the tour as well, so get ready for a night of early 2000s nostalgia.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, March 21st 2014 at 10am local time.  Be sure to visit BackstreetBoys.com for info about fan club pre-sales, VIP packages, upgrades and after parties!
