What 2020 Has Been Like For Backstreet Boys Fans (Using GIFs From Schitt’s Creek)

When the Backstreet Boys sang “I got mixed emotions”, they were ahead of their time. 2020 has been nothing but a rollercoaster of mixed emotions so far for fans around the world.

Some of our favorite WHOTB posts have involved combining our love for some of our favorite TV shows. While we’ve done plenty of Friends and a Golden Girls theme, we’re bringing a new one in to describe our feelings this year — Schitt’s Creek! A family who lived a high life and had it swiped out from underneath them seems appropriate for this year, no?

So this is what how it all went down…

After the DNA tour ended last October, we were all ready for more. Luckily, the Backstreet Boys swiftly announced dates in Australia, New Zealand, South America ANNNDD North America!

We were like…

Then we saw the dates and HOLY COW…there were so many and so perfect!

So we immediately renewed our fanclub memberships because…

Everything was lining up for the perfect concert summer / tour season with friends! We were hitting up Ticketmaster like…

Then… the COVID-19 pandemic hit and things were being shut down left and right. Including live performances… and DEFINITELY no meet and greets allowed..

giphy (23)

So we waited for any kind of announcement about what would happen to our DNA tour plans and the range of feelings was WILD. We tried to remain positive, but also, realistic.

Then it happened. For the benefit of everyone involved, the Backstreet Boys postponed the remainder of their 2020 dates to 2021.

They were like…

And we were like…

giphy (38)

We couldn’t help but be a little bit like…

But also, we understand… because it truly is for the safety of everyone.

giphy (5)

But still…

giphy (25)

Then we realized that the only logical thing to do is to look forward to 2021. Those of us in North America (and Sao Paulo) will be like this until we get those dates…

Us, to anyone who asks us to do something in 2021 before we get those dates:

In fact, we’re going to add MORE dates to our plans (if possible) and no one is going to change our minds!

Us, to anyone who tries to stop us:

So for the rest of this Summer, we’re going to be something like this:

But next Summer…well…we can only hope that it’s something like this:

Until then, we’ll be here to commiserate and lift each other up – together ❤

23 GIFs From ‘The Bachelor’ That Backstreet Boys Fans Can Relate To

Sometimes we watch things and we say to ourselves “that’s exactly what it looks like when we feel _____ about the Backstreet Boys!”

We’ve done it with Elf, we’ve done it with Friends, and now, we’re embarking on exposing our most ridiculous, hilarious (but totally serious obbbvviously, wink wink) side as Backstreet fans with the most appropriate show — The Bachelor.

(This isn’t the first time we’ve touched Bachelor territory — click here for our VIP related post!)

Here we go. Can you relate?

**WARNING: Must have sense of humor to proceed**
