The Backstreet Boys Join Jimmy Fallon To Perform "The Thong Song"

Written by on February 12, 2020



Jimmy Fallon has been doing the barbershop quartet bit on The Tonight Show for quite some time now. While it started out as a four-person affair – Jimmy joined by three other members to form The Ragtime Gals – they have begun to enlist celebs to hop in on the fun. Sting, Weezer, Justin Timberlake and Tina Fey have all lent their voices to perform jubilant accapella covers of songs that you would never imagine to be sung in this manner. 

The latest edition of this sketch recruited The Backstreet Boys for Sisqo’s 1999 hit, “The Thong Song”. It’s remarkable how long the boy band has remained active and relevant, still touring and releasing projects to this day. Their ninth studio album, DNA, arrived last January and they are celebrating it with a massive North American tour this summer. “We play our hits, we dance our a–es off and we do it because we love our fans. We can’t wait to take this show on the road again this summer,” the group wrote when announcing the 44-stop trek.

Check out the tour dates and sing along to “The Thong Song” below.
