Though fans may not want it that way, the Backstreet Boys can make magic happen from five different places.

The veteran boy band took on their iconic hit "I Want It That Way" from their respective homes on Sunday night (March 29), as part of the iHeart Living Room Concert for America on Fox. The performance kicked off with Brian Littrell in the living room of his studio -- complete with an Elvis pinball machine -- who gave a shout-out to "frontline responders that are putting themselves in harm’s way to protect their fellow citizens" before his bandmates joined in.

AJ McLean sat in front of a piano at his home in Los Angeles, Nick Carter sang poolside at his Las Vegas home, Howie Dorough chimed in from Orlando, and Kevin Richardson performed from home in Los Angeles. And yes, even apart, they nailed every single harmony.

The performance also featured family cameos, with Carter's son Odin making an appearance and Richardson's boys Mason and Maxwell showing off their BSB fandom by singing along on the drums and guitar. Needless to say, it was a jam session for everyone involved and watching from home.
