James Corden performs with Backstreet Boys, vows to bring back boy bands

James Corden has a new cause, and it's focused on reinstating dance routines and matching outfits in today's music. "I care about this maybe more than anything else on the planet," said The Late Late Show host on Tuesday (Sept. 27).

Speaking enthusiastically about his cause, he declared: "We are bringing back boy bands. I'm talking proper boy bands. Five guys together - I'm talking about the cute one, the funny one, the nice one, the other one and the maverick who refused to play by the rules. All living together in some weird mansion in Orlando."

Referencing newer boy bands like One Direction, he admitted he was "aware that boy bands haven't gone away. But now, they just stand onstage wearing skinny jeans and Vans sneakers. And some of them even have the audacity to pick up instruments! That is not what I want in a boy band, OK? I want matching outfits, synchronized dancing and way over-budget music videos!"

To prove how serious he was about this, Corden performed "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)" with the top-selling boy band of all time, the Backstreet Boys, who start their "Larger Than Life" residency in Las Vegas in March 2017.
