Talk about wearing multiple hats! After getting two perfect 30s on his dances, Nick Carter later headed back to his roots — that’s right, the Backstreet Boy belted out his song, ‘I Will Wait’ on the ‘DWTS’ finale!
We knew Nick Carter could dance like no one’s watching on Dancing with the Stars, and we knew that with a little group called the Backstreet Boys, he could really perform. But this was more raw and real than we’ve ever seen — and we loved. Watch his performance here!
The music video is one of the most emotional we’ve ever seen, and the performance was just as sweet. He sat, while his partner Sharna Burgess stood right by his side, while the other finalists stood on stage too!
This performance of course comes at a perfect time. Nick’s album All American drops on Wednesday, Nov. 25! Of course, we haven’t had much time to focus on his singing — we’ve been watching him dance, dance and dance some more for weeks now with Sharna and they clearly are quite the force to reckon with.
However, we know after DWTS ends, it’ll be back to music: his solo album and a new album with BSB, which AJ McLean confirmed to HollywoodLife.com would be coming after Nick takes a “well-deserved break.”
“January is probably the most realistic time,” he said. “I think this album we’re trying to go a little sexy, actually. We’re actually trying to be the men that we are today and not necessarily singing ‘Quit Playin’ Games,’ but talkin’ about sex, talking about fun stuff! We’re all in our mid 30s to 40s, and it’s like, that’s almost the next phase that we’ve never really done. We’ve tapped into a sex appeal here and there, but we’ve never really like, wrote songs about it or songs that are just sexy. We really emulate and look into Maroon Five. Like ‘Sugar,’ that’s a sexy song.” Learn more about Nick’s battles in his book!
