Since March, numerous celebrities have shown up in the audience for the Backstreet Boys’ Las Vegas shows. From Snooki to Joey Fatone, we thought we had seen it all.
That was, until last night, when one celebrity did what no other celebrity has done before – became an honorary member of the group.
You might remember just over a year ago when James Corden vowed to bring “proper boybands” back and joined the Backstreet Boys in a performance on the Late Late Show.
Little did we know that it wouldn’t be the last time James would be in the band. Anyone that watches the show knows that Corden has always wanted to be in (was secretly in a) boyband. This weekend, his dreams (and a little bit of ours) came true.
As the lights went down in the AXIS theater and the Boys’ faces appeared on the screens, everyone realized quickly that Brian’s face had been replaced by someone familiar.
Soon, it was obvious that James had finally made it onto the stage with Kevin, Nick, AJ, Howie and eventually Brian to perform “Larger Than Life”, nailing EVERY MOVE…and adding a few of his own. Check it out below (and all the IG stories on our Facebook page)!

James didn’t just show up for the first performance of the night, but also in VIP beforehand as a few lucky fans tweeted about his appearance during their meet and greets and the fact that the host was handing out free BSB swag.
Regardless of if they got to meet him or not, everyone was thrilled to see Backstreet’s new addition!
Had such a blast last night at the #BackstreetBoys (+ #JamesCorden) residency show in Las Vegas! 🕺🏻🎶🤘🏼 Watch my IG Story now: https://t.co/22bEPPWW1k #bsb #largerthanlife #bsbvegas pic.twitter.com/fANZxFkt1K

We’re sure (very, very hopeful) that such an epic night will be featured on Corden’s Late, Late Show this week and when that happens, we’ll be sure to let you know.
For now, we (and 1000s of other fans) only have one question….
WHAT ABOUT THE BACKSTREET BOYS AND CARPOOL KARAOKE, JAMES?!
