The Backstreet Boys Play London, In Pictures

YOU know you’re getting old when the Backstreet Boys have reformed. Anorak’s aging fan was at Capital FM’s Jingle Bell Ball at the O2 Arena in London to see Brian Littrell (turning into Steve Martin), A. J. McLean (sunglasses to reduce the glare), Nick Carter (he was once a heartthrob) and Howie Dorough (Howard the popstar) of the Backstreet Boys perform. She took pictures.

Now the duo have been fast tracked into tabloid journalism, and are seated in the editor’s car for the Sun’s Bizarre section.

Highlights include:

* Jedward have the autographs of Avril Lavigne, the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears

* Jedward’s hair is a combination of “VO5 and hairspray” – as is their voice.
