The Backstreet Boys have managed to win the hearts of many 90s kids with their superhit songs and the band came together once again for a stunning performance. AJ McLean came on the latest episode (Monday, October 5) of 'Dancing With The Stars' with his partner, Cheryl Burke, in the hope of enjoying his time on the show. However, once AJ started dancing, he left everyone shocked as his performance turned out to be a powerful one.

AJ decided to have some fun as he invited his fellow band members to come on the stage with him. While he would have loved for them to be physically present, unfortunately, due to coronavirus, the band members decided to be there for AJ by being virtually present. Performing cha-cha-cha on their hit song 'Larger than life', AJ did not miss a chance to show off his dance moves. At the same time, the Backstreet Boys made sure they had their groove on as they performed in the background. While the dance was supposed to be cha-cha-cha, it seemed like AJ got a bit carried away.

With his solo performances, the judges thought the pair did not stick to the style. However, they loved the energy he brought in while adding there were certain things where he could improve. Despite this, AJ managed to have a good score. All the judges gave him an 8 and he was also safe from elimination.

"You have no idea how excited I am that AJ McLean just danced to a song from the Backstreet Boys!" read one comment. "AJ and Cheryl's (with backup from the virtual Backstreet Boys) cha-cha was awesome, although it felt more like a freestyle? Cheryl only danced, like, half the song. Len would have raked them over the coals!," read another.
