Backstreet Boys Perform Hit New Single, “Don’t Go Breaking my Heart,” on “The Tonight Show”


To say that the Backstreet Boys are in the middle of enjoying yet another career resurgence just might be the biggest understatement of 2018. And this latest resurgence was on display on Thursday (June 28) as the legendary band burst onto the stage of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to perform their hit single “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.”

The band, which first hit success all the way back in 1996, also collaborated with Fallon and The Roots while on the show, playing “I Like It That Way” with classroom instruments…and yes, they sounded great!

Indeed, it looks and sounds as if Backstreet Boys are in for a wild ride of popularity, as the group will soon start up their Las Vegas residency and will also release a new album come October.

 “We are so grateful to have a hit record right now,” Backstreet Boys’ Aaron Carter said in a recent interview. “And I mean this is incredible. But you know if it keeps going the way that it is that would be great. But again we have everything in the world we could ever ask for. We have great families. We have our health. We have our residency in Las Vegas. You know we are grateful for every little thing that we have.”
