The Backstreet Boys Dressed As the Spice Girls Are Larger Than Life

The Backstreet Boys are evidently wannabe members of the Spice Ladies.

On their recurring cruise (yes, there exists a literal Backstreet Boys Cruise ), the iconic boy band arrived on stage during Tuesday night’ h performance donning some spicy clothes.

Nick Carter was dressed since Emma Bunton’ s Baby Essence,   AJ McLean was Melanie Brown’ s Scary Spice, Kevin Richardson was Victoria Beckham’ t Posh Spice, Howie Dorough has been Geri Halliwell’ s Ginger Essence and Brian Littrell was Melanie Chisholm’ s Sporty Spice.

Confused? Same here. Enthralled? Furthermore same.

The Boys reportedly sang the Girls’ hits “ Wannabe” and “ Say You’ ll Be There, ” then other girl power anthems such as No Doubt’ s “ Simply a Girl, ” Pink’ s “ Raise Your Glass” and Britney Spears’   “ Oops!… Used to do It Again. ” Throwback Wednesday, much?!  

According to Instagram, the particular inspiration behind the nostalgia-inducing clothes was to celebrate “ all the girl power that’ s held us going for 25 years. ”

Regards to that!
