The Backstreet Boys celebrated girl power while on their BSB Cruise, and performed as the "Spice Boys."

The Backstreet Boys know what fans want, what they really, really want. They want a Spice Girls and Backstreet Boys mashup, and they tried to give it to us.

 

They couldnt get Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Mel B, Mel C, and Emma Bunton on their BSB Cruise but they did dress up as them.

 

 

Nick Carter was “Baby Spice,” Kevin Richardson was “Posh,” AJ McLean was “Scary,” Brian Littrell was “Sporty,” and Howie Dorough was simply “Ginger.”

Celebrating all of the girl power thats kept us going for 25 years.

They posted on Instagram about their decision saying, “Celebrating all of the girl power thats kept us going for 25 years,” with Richardson adding, “Sometimes ya just gotta SPICE things up”

 

It wasnt just for show; they also performed as the Spice Boys singing “Say Youll Be There” and “Wannabe.”

 

The cruise sailed from Miami to Grand Turk as the group held themed deck parties with the Spice Boys being their last one.
