The backstreet Boys shared with The Knot exclusive pictures along with a sweet memory about their wedding day (except Brian). Heres the pictures from Leighanne & Brian’s fairytale wedding… ❤

It seems like they’re still meant to be. Nearly 25 years ago, a talented group of five singers banded together in Orlando, Florida, and dubbed themselves the Backstreet Boys. The group went on to enjoy international acclaim and success, releasing chart-topping ballads like “As Long As You Love Me,” “I Want It That Way,” and “Incomplete” for their throngs of adoring fans to play continuously on repeat. And while they sang about love, the actual act of finding love in their personal lives took time.

Now, back and ready to once again sweep devoted fans off their feet, the Backstreet Boys look back on the tender moments from their wedding days. Read what Kevin, A.J., Howie, and Nick tell The Knot in a new, exclusive below.

After 24 years on the road together, the Backstreet Boys are most assuredly still larger than life, and now they have the residency to prove it.

On the opening night of their 26-show stint at Planet Hollywood’s AXIS auditorium in Las Vegas, the quintet (Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, A. J. McLean and Howie Dorough) powered through an energetic setlist of 20 fan favorites, replete with costume changes, backup dancers and pyrotechnics worthy of an arena tour.

Unlike some other Vegas residencies we could name, the band weren’t content to lip-sync through their hits, belting their signature tunes live and still managing to pull off those chair-swinging “As Long As You Love Me” dance moves like it was 1997 again.

The group kicked things off, fittingly, with “Larger Than Life,” with all five members descending from the ceiling in rotating boxes equipped with strobing spotlights, each dressed in futuristic all-white ensembles reminiscent of their “Millennium” album cover.

If you didn’t know any better, someone would have thought it was 1999 all over again in Las Vegas on Wednesday night — and that is no insult. This time, though, there was no Carson Daly and no TRL, but there was a proper boy band on stage. Six months after announcing they were beginning a 26-show residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, the Backstreet Boys took the stage to 4,600 screaming fans. What happened next was a 100-minute trip down memory lane… which was perfect since BSB’s fans, well, want it that way.

What was it like to see boy band royalty inside the Axis theater on opening night of the “Larger Than Life” show? Here are eight takeaways from Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean, and Kevin Richardson first show in Vegas.

Hey ladies!
Perhaps this is no surprise, but the ratio of male to female was far from even, with women filling up the majority of the seats inside the theater. The group is well aware of its target audience. “How many ladies got a hall pass to spend a night with the Backstreet Boys?” member Nick Carter asked the crowd. “Fellas, who brought a lady so you could get lucky?”

Oldies, but goodies
While leading up to the residency show, the Backstreet Boys promised to harken back to the late ’90s and early 2000s, and they delivered. During the nonstop show, the group chugged along through a 20-song set that centered on the hits. While speaking briefly to the crowd, Howie Dorough called the songs “oldies but goodies.” Most people would say that it was like listening to a Backstreet Boys greatest hits album live. “Hopefully this is the best Las Vegas residency anyone has ever seen,” AJ McLean added.

High-pitched cheers pierced the air in Liberty University’s Vines Center throughout Convocation on Wednesday as Backstreet Boys member Brian Littrell and his family talked about how their faith influences their lives.

But the highlight of the event — and the point at which the decibels reached their peak — was at the conclusion, as Littrell joined the Liberty Worship Collective in singing a medley of his boy band’s greatest hits, including “Everybody,” “Larger Than Life,” “As Long As You Love Me” (joined by his son, Baylee), and “I Want It That Way,” the top single off of the ninth-best selling album in history. Students crowded the front of the stage to sing along, many screaming at the top of their lungs, and were rewarded as Littrell hopped down to join them, shaking hands, signing autographs, and giving hugs all while singing.

At one time, the Backstreet Boys were the most popular pop group in the world. They are the first group to sell 1 million CDs in a week and have sold over 140 million albums to date, reaching multi-platinum status.

On his own, Littrell released a contemporary Christian album, “Welcome Home,” in 2006.


Littrell, along with his wife, Leighanne, and teenage son, Baylee, answered questions on stage in an interview with David Nasser, Liberty’s senior vice president for Spiritual Development.

The singer/songwriter talked about how he remains strong in his faith throughout worldwide fame.

“It is what you make of it,” Littrell said. “A lot of people in the world, they make a big glitz and glamor about it. Me, I’ve always known who I was as a person going into the business and that is the person that I am going to be coming out of the business, if I ever stop.

“You can easily put yourself in the wrong position. My wife always tells me, ‘You are your environment.’ If you put yourself in those scary situations, things can happen. And for me, my faith was the foundation; it was a template, it was something that was always on my mind no matter what I did.”

Baylee has been interviewed for JustJared.com !

Brian Littrell and his wife Leighanne pose with their son Baylee Littrell at the opening night of the musical Disaster! on Broadway on Tuesday (March 8) in New York City.

The 13-year-old son of the Backstreet Boys singer is making his Broadway debut in the musical playing the dual roles of twins Ben and Lisa. The show takes place on a cruise ship casino on the evening of a major disaster in the Big Apple and spoofs classic disaster movies while using a catalogue of ’70s music.

“Ben and Lisa are identical twins and have very different personalities,” Baylee told JustJared.com in an exclusive interview. “Lisa is bubbly and bright, and is definitely the singer out of the two, but she doesn’t know a lot about the world. Ben can be more helpful than Lisa, but he’s not as outgoing as her.”

Baylee also opened up to us about what it was like growing up in the entertainment industry as Brian‘s son and how his parents inspired him to become a performer.

Brian Littrell’s 13-year-old son is all grown up and headed to the Great White Way. Baylee is following in his dad’s musical footsteps and is set to make his Broadway debut in Disaster! when it opens in New York on March 8.

“When I think about it, I accomplished something that not a lot of people get to achieve in their life,” the teen told the Associated Press. “I’m still a little shocked. It still hasn’t come out of my mind yet.”

Talk about some seriously talented genes. Back in the day, the boy bander’s son used to come up on stage and sing from time to time on his tours. “He’s way better than both of us put together,” Baylee’s mom, Leighanne Wallace, told the AP.

But Baylee’s parents, who met on the set of the music video for “As Long As You Love Me,” weren’t eager to force their kid into showbiz. “We’re not those parents to push him in any direction. We’re just supportive and loving in whatever he wants to do,” Brian said. “He could be a trash man or a schoolteacher, it doesn’t matter. We’re here to love him.”

BayleeMQ
Baylee Littrell, son of Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell, is in “Disaster” at the Nederlander Theatre.

Baylee Littrell was 9 when he started opening arena shows around the world.

OK, it helped that his dad, Brian, was a member of the headlining band — Backstreet Boys.

“Baylee would do two songs,” his mom, Leighanne, tells The Post. “He would ride his scooter to the stage, sing, scoot out and go play basketball. It was totally normal for him: It’s just the way he grew up.”

Now 13, Baylee’s facing smaller crowds, but they’re no less daunting: He’s making his Broadway debut playing twins Ben and Lisa in “Disaster!” — a spoof of ’70s disaster movies set to such period hits as “Hot Stuff” and “Three Times a Lady.”

Asked by his father whether it’s hard to handle two different roles, Baylee replies, “Oh yeah. It is completely the most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my life.”

NEW YORK (AP) —

A young actor from Atlanta is making his Broadway debut this season. He’s only 13 and he’s never acted professionally before. But don’t worry — he’s got it in his DNA.

“Disaster!” star Baylee Littrell is the son of model and actress Leighanne Littrell and Brian Littrell, a member of the Backstreet Boys. “He’s way better than both of us put together,” said his proud mom. “Like way better.”

Baylee likes baseball, grooves to The Temptations, admires Carol Burnett, cries on the couch watching girly movies with his mom and is studying the Jazz Age with his tutor. He grew up on the road — his crib was on the Backstreet Boys bus — and he has a knack for connecting with older people.

“I always was a little more sharper in some ways,” he said in a joint interview with his parents. “I was always like a little too mature to hang out with other kids.”

Fitting for a young man with plenty of goofy voices and an ear for mimicry, Baylee actually plays two characters in the show, a spoof of 1970s disaster movies. He plays the always-battling twins Ben and Lisa. (For Lisa, he dons a wig and sings in a higher octave.)

He sings a clutch of songs, including “25 or 6 to 4” and “Ben,” popularized by a young Michael Jackson. “This show is nothing like a Broadway show,” he said. “It’s funny and a lot of Broadway shows are dead serious.”

That he would end up in show business one day might have been predicted from the way he lit up watching his dad sing and dance in front of thousands.

When he was 4, the band’s manager brought him onstage for the encore. “He was running and waving and everyone’s like ‘Baylee! Baylee!'” said his father. Baylee didn’t want it to end: “He’d cry and pitch a fit. Like, ‘Where’s everybody going?'”
