Video: New Kids And Backstreet Boys Prove They Are Not Actually The Same Band

By  | 

Backstreet's back. Why? Last night at the American Music Awards, The Backstreet Boys took the stage with fellow boy banders New Kids On The Block, proving once and for all that they are not in fact the same people.

Be forewarned. There are a lot of aging dudes in black leather to be seen in this video.

Check it out after the jump, and try to decipher which adult male is from which band. And also, why boy bands got a bad name to begin with.

In addition to this performance, the two groups now have a conjoined Twitter feed (@NKOTBSB), proving that if you wait long enough, everyone gets some sort of a comeback. (Wait your turn, Mel Gibson!)
