Backstreet Boys Joke About New Dance Routines and Why Some Are Retired: “We Can’t Get Back Up.”

The Backstreet Boys aren’t boys anymore.  The boy band, which made its debut in the mid-90s with hits like “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back),” admitted they can’t quite rock their bodies like they used to.

In an interview with ET, band member Howie joked, “We can’t get down on our knees anymore ’cause we can’t get back up.”

“We used to be in a standing position, drop to our knees and then — with no knee pads on — and then pop right back up,” Kevin explained. “We don’t do that anymore. We don’t do kip-ups anymore, when you’re laying on your back and kip-up. We don’t do splits anymore.”

Nick Carter explained they are still delivering a high-energy show with four brand new dance routines, along with new choreography to old numbers.

“Backstreet Boys represents a really special place in time with nostalgic music and it makes people happy,” Nick said. “And so I’m looking forward to getting back out there and just giving a little joy to everyone’s life.”
