The Backstreet Boys: Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson, AJ McLean, Brian Littrel, and Howie Dorough brought out something special while performing on their Backstreet Boys Cruise last Tuesday: they came out in their best Spice Girl garb to ‘celebrate girl power.’
Nick channeled Baby Spice (Emma Bunton) in a pink dress and pigtails, Kevin gave his best Posh Spice (Victoria Beckham) in a black jumpsuit and sunglasses, AJ was Scary Spice (Mel B.) in fierce cheetah print, and Brian was Sporty Spice (Mel C.) in her signature track pants, and Howie was Ginger Spice (Geri Halliwell) in a union jack dress.
Kevin shared the same picture on his Instagram, captioning it with “Sometimes ya just gotta SPICE things up,” and even performed (although it was lip synched!) the beloved Spice Girls hit Wannabe and Say You’ll Be There.
Fans loved it, of course.

Then on Wednesday, they channeled their inner superheroes (and a villain or two!) as they performed garbed in the outfits of some of the more popular comic book character movie adaptations to come out:
One thing’s for sure, it’s always going to be a surprise with the Backstreet Boys!
