ABC announced Boy Band and we were ecstatic to watch a new reality based on one of our favorite subjects.
ABC announced that Nick Carter would be joining the show as an architect with Emma Bunton (aka Baby Spice) and we almost came unglued. Nick back on our TV every week for the Summer? Commercials that feature “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)”? You’re being so good to us, 2017!
Let’s go over a few other factors that play into our excitement.
1. Nick Carter As An Architect.
Let’s just get this out of the way and not even pretend that this isn’t a MAJOR reason we’re excited to watch this new reality series. Anytime we get a Backstreet Boy on the TV on the regular is a good time to be alive. If Nick’s guest judge stint on DWTS was any hint of how well he’ll do on Boy Band, we’re here for it.
Judge away, Nick Carter. Mold this boyband!
2. A Spice Girl and Timbaland.
While Nick’s fellow architects are two of our favorite people in the music industry, we’re also excited for selfish purposes. It only seems natural that this bond between architects will extend beyond the show and into our grubby little hands with a Spice Girls or Timbaland + Backstreet collab, right? RIGHT?!
3. A Plethora of Future Boybanders To Choose From.
We can say that the Backstreet Boys are our only ones all we want, but be real, our “yeaaahh” answer to “Am I the only one?” is a lie. While the Boys may be the only ones in the moment they ask, and ultimately our ride or die, we’re always up for fresh boyband blood. If they can sing, dance in synchronization, point at us and pay homage to their predecessors, we’ll give them a chance.

(But if they ever win a Grammy – before the BSB – we’re finished.)
4. We Love To Have A Say!
Just like we voted our fingers off for Nick during Dancing With The Stars, we will also vote for our favorite boybanders. After all, we ARE the experts. Actually, we should take turns as the 4th architect, right? We HAVE been doing something right for 24 years. While Nick, Emma, and Timbaland might know what it takes to be in a boyband, we can pretty much predict how well they’ll do in real life.
Like, which one of these boys can take a crazy fan running at them screaming? Actually, can that be one of the things they have to go through? Should they go on a cruise first and see how that goes? Being in a boyband is tough work and how you handle fans can make or break you…. believe us.
Anyway, once Boy Band moves into live shows, watch our social media for how you can vote!

Of course, we’ll be live tweeting as well.
WHO. IS. READY?! Grab your popcorn and your expectations – we’re about to get ourselves a new BOY BAND!
