Did you catch that 'N Sync reunion performance on the VMAs last week? Shit was outta control, yo. Everybody who saw it said that the reunion was, like, what dreams are made of. The trouble is they’re copycats. Cuz Backstreet Boys have been back (alright!) and touring for, like, a year and half already, guys. Where have you been? Now, BSB approach their 20th anniversary as a reconciled group—nay, as the original, top dog, best-selling boy band in history—having just dropped a new album titled In a World Like This and currently on a global tour. That’s, like, the entire planet. And they stop by Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine this Friday. So suck on that you lame 'N Sync-ers! AJ, Howie, Nick, Kevin and Brian 4eva!
