Cue the "Backstreet's Back" jokes. Nostalgia-ridden fans of the '90s boyband have patiently awaited this glorious day, which is really just whenever Nick Carter decided he had nothing left to lose and only more cash to make. The crooning quintet told MTV that nothing's changed after a 10-year hiatus and 20 years in the biz (so, Kevin's still not allowed to sing?), but we can think of at least one thing: Carter is no longer far-and-away the cutest. They've all cleaned up okay. Just—no more Canadian tuxedos. Anyway, yes, Backstreet has a new album out, but we're not even going to bother to tell you what it's called. You know you're only going to this concert to see them do the "I Want It That Way" hand moves. And when we say you, we mean...us. To open the show, the Backstreet Boys have rescued Jesse McCartney and DJ Pauly D from veritable pop culture obscurity.
