The Backstreet Boys Appear on 'The Bonnie Hunt Show'

Back in my teen years, I would spend hours watching various talk shows in order to see my favorite boybands perform their new songs and talk about themselves. My all time favorite was the Backstreet Boys. I grew up with their posters on my bedroom walls, their self-titled album was the first CD I ever bought, and I became enraged when snobbish music critics bashed them. So this past Wednesday, I had an enjoyable flashback of those days when the Backstreet Boys appeared on The Bonnie Hunt Show. The group was in fine form, cheerfully telling stories about their families and experiences on the road and performing the catchy single “Bigger”. Furthermore, Hunt is a great host. Unlike some of her daytime rivals, she seems genuinely interested and knows when the focus should be on her and when it should be on her guests. Let’s hope this kind of light yet endearing entertainment continues.
