Boy bands never go on to become man bands, or at least that’s what Nick Carter believes.

As a member of the Backstreet Boys and one of the “architects” on ABC’s reality series “Boy Band,” Carter should know.

The Backstreet Boys formed in 1993, but that might as well be yesterday as far as their devotees are concerned.

“I don’t think you ever age out of being a boybander, and that’s both the beauty of it and my gift,” Carter told CNN. “We get to have fun and always be boys. [Fans] still call us boys to this day.”

There’s something for everyone
If you are into the bad boy, the guy next door or the one who makes you laugh, boy bands offer someone to love.

And, of course, there is always that one who stands out from the others (looking at you, Justin Timberlake!)

“People love boy bands because you can relate to at least one member,” Carter said.

“Boy bands give people the right to be able to choose who their favorites are and who they can relate to. Everyone can find someone that they can call their own,” Carter added.

The total package
The look, stage presence, dance moves, a voice, boy band members have to have it all — and all together.

Carter said there’s a particular chemistry boy bands have to have, and that’s what he and fellow architects producer Timbaland and former Spice Girl Emma Bunton are looking for on “Boy Band.”

“We are looking for people who want to be a part of something special when it comes to being part of a team or being part of a family of brotherhood,” Carter said. “If you put one bad apple in a bunch, it’s going to spoil the whole batch.”
