Backstreet's back, guys — well, at least Nick Carter is. Us Weekly reports that the boy band legend will be performing one of Backstreet Boys' OG hits on Dancing with the Stars tonight. In other words, it's time to head to your couch or set your DVR, pronto. The number one song choice? None other than 1996's "Everybody." The theme of tonight's show is "Most Memorable Year," and Carter chose that year because it's when he met the rest of his bandmates, A.J., Brian, Kevin, and Howie. "That was the year my life changed forever," he told Us Weekly. "Without them, I wouldn't be who I am right now. Every single one of those guys raised me and taught me so much about values and family and relationships...They were there for me through thick and thin." You can bet we'll be tuning in — even if it means having the song stuck in our heads for the rest of the week. Update: Here is a clip of a piece of the performance. We'll be waiting with bated breath for ABC to post the rest.
And, for nostalgia's sake, here's the original. Really puts you in the Halloween spirit, no?
