Band forever preserved on the Walk of Fame

Our inner teenage selves are screaming and clapping frantically.

The Backstreet Boys have been officially eternalized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, right between Boyz II Men and The Osmonds (no joke!). Great neighbourhood and excellent neighbours, we say!

After selling over 130 million albums worldwide, it's about time. The Backstreet Boys have definitely earned it.

"I love you guys. And aside from my wedding day and the birth of my daughter, this is hands down the best day of my life," an emotional A.J. McLean stated.

Nick Carter chimed in, "I never ever imagined in a million years that we would be a part of this."

"I worked my entire life to never be walked on, but I'm OK with this one," quipped Brian Littrell.

Howie Dorough stated, "I will one day be able to bring my family here. My kids will be able to bring their kids here and still be able to see the legacy that the Backstreet Boys have carried on for many years."

Cutie-patootie Kevin Richardson concluded with, "What a beautiful day. What another beautiful way to celebrate 20 years together."

Has it been 20 years already? We feel a little old. Congrats, fellas! Opinions? Sound off!
