Gahd, we are LOVING this whole 90s revival at the moment. The oh-so-brief return of PJ & Duncan, The Wanted parodying loads of old school boybands in the 'Walks Like Rihanna' video, The Saturdays going on about gentlemen being so 1995 in their new single - all defining cultural moments. And now those One Direction fellas have hopped aboard the retro train, covering over fave Backstreet Boys track EVUH at their gig in Stockholm.
The Take Me Home tour's already brought us a cover of Shaggy's 'It Wasn't Me', and last night the boys decided to give BSB's 'I Want It That Way' a shot. With amazing results.
There wasn't a dodgy Liam Payne faux-Jamaican accent audible as the lads put on their best SERIOUS BOYBAND BALLAD faces and belted out a cheeky bit of the 90s hit. It's basically like watching them back in The X Factor days - but with bigger hair, a bigger bicep-to-forearm ratio and about 10,000 more tattoos.
Check out the boys attempt at being floppy-haired Nick Carter and co. below. Hooray for life.
UGH, Mini 90s Us just met Actual Current Us and it was a BEAUTIFUL MOMENT. We don't know what we love most - Niall's little bop, Zayn's ad-libby awesomeness or Liam's totes emosh end line.
What do you reckon? Anything else you wanna hear the boys cover? Maybe a bit of 3T (we think we're the only ones who remember them...) or 911? Comments after this vid, please.
