The Jonas Brothers and the Backstreet Boys brought their equally hot brand of boy band magic to the MTV Europe Music Awards yesterday (November 5). And things got really awesome when the guys all met up on the red carpet.
Believe it or not, the two generations of boy bands have a history with one another. That’s probably why they all looked pretty excited to run into one another, catch up and share some laughs at the big show. The Jonas Brothers opened for BSB a few years back (2005 to be exact, for BSB’s “Never Gone” tour) and we have to say this was the most exciting reunion in ages. (Except for that one time Kevin Richardson joined the rest of the band for one show and gave us all false hope for one moment.)
Last year, Brian Littrell sang the JoBros praises in an MTV News interview. “They’re a talented bunch of kids. They’re growing up fast,” he said. “I don’t feel reluctant to give them advice. I’ll never forget: We were doing a show in Florida with the Temptations, and one of those guys stood up and said, ’This is show business, and as you’re doing your show, your business could be running out on you.’ I’ll never forget that.”
We’ll certainly never forget what will go down as a classic red carpet encounter.
