WATCH: Backstreet Boys get surprise dance from hospital staff on band’s 27th anniversary
The Backstreet Boys were treated to a surprise dance number by health workers on the boy band’s 27th anniversary yesterday, April 20.
The staff at the Children’s National Hospital in Washington DC, USA, re-created the popular steps of the group’s 1997 hit song “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).” The band posted the surprise on its Instagram page earlier today, April 21.
Band members Nick Carter, Brian Littrell and AJ McLean saw the performance when they were on a video call with the hospital to meet with their patients.

We weren’t expecting their inspiring staff to surprise us with this incredible dance to Everybody!! Beyond impressed by these multitalented, hardworking heroes!! All our love 🖤 Huge thanks to our brother @ryanseacrest and @ryanfoundation #BSB27 #HealthcareHeroes
The staff first explained that they came up with the surprise when the Ryan Seacrest Foundation said that the band would be making a “virtual visit” to the center. The screen then showed employees from the hospital’s different units following the popular choreography of their 1997 song. The workers also observed precautions against the spread of the coronavirus as they wore face masks during their performance.
When the dance number ended, the clip cut to a window in the hospital with the phrase “We’re all in this together” painted on it.
“Grateful we could talk with patients @childrensnational [heart emoji],” the boy band said.
“We weren’t expecting their inspiring staff to surprise us with this incredible dance to [Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)]!!” they added. “Beyond impressed by these multitalented, hardworking heroes!” /ra
