27 Videos of Nick Carter Singing “The Way It Was” That You Need To See Right Now

If you’ve been following along on the Backstreet Boys’ DNA tour so far, then you’ve probably already declared one or two parts of the show as your favorite. [If you haven’t been following along and would like to stay spoiler-free, leave here now. Read this post instead.]

Far and wide across social media platforms, there are a few performances that keep getting talked about – the Backstreet Boys performing “New Love” and the one that you came here for. Don’t act like you don’t know.

When DNA was released, fans poured in with love for Nick Carter’s vocals on “The Way It Was” (Sidenote: Can we also talk about how gooooddd Kevin hits us with that “YOU. KNOW. I still want you baaaaabay…” at some point?). When he teased that he may sing it at his acoustic event in Vegas in April, fans were drooling at the very idea of it.

Then tour began.

And every Backstreet Boy sang a new song.

And there was Nick Carter… giving everyone exactly – E X A C T L Y – what they wanted. Some didn’t even know they wanted it, but here we are with an entire post dedicated to his solo performance of a SNIPPET of “The Way It Was”.

Quickly after tour began and fans tweeted videos of the performance, we were flooded with drool…er…tweets from people proclaiming that they couldn’t get enough and they would retweet the performances anytime they saw them.

Something about his voice. Something about his charm. There is something about Nick singing one minute of this song that sends some kind of gentle wave of euphoria into the crowd (in person and on the interwebs) that people can not get enough of. Hell, at one point Carter himself takes a seat on the stage in a meditation-like pose and we’re pretty sure that he can’t even handle himself and that song.

“The Way It Was” is our own personal Backstreet marijuana in a Nick Carter flavor and that’s the way it is.

And now, for your own personal eargasmic, fellow fan-mily members have shared their videos of the performance in multiple cities. Enjoy!

ICYMI: Brian Littrell Is Nailing It On The ‘DNA’ Tour

We’ve never been shy about the fact that we root for every single one of the Backstreet Boys during their highs and lows in the past 4 years that WHOTB has been created. Obviously, the celebrations and triumphs have been our favorite moments and we’d be remiss if we didn’t acknowledge this one.

Since he opened up about his vocal struggles in the Backstreet Boys 2015 documentaryShow ‘Em What You’re Made Of, we’ve been cheering for Brian a little louder, literally and figuratively. We’ve sang along with him during performances and watched him steadily progress over the past few years. Every note he’s ever sung has made us grateful that he is a Backstreet Boy and that we’ve been blessed to have him in our lives as 1/5 of our favorite band, but knowing now how hard he has worked to reach those notes again – the ones we unknowingly took for granted – has made us even more elated to hear them, even more thankful for the hard work that all of these men put in, and beyond joyful that Brian Littrell is still the fighter we’ve always known he was.
