AJ’s back alright. The former Backstreet Boy stepped onto the Dancing with the Stars stage Monday night (Oct. 5), this time to showcase his Cha Cha.
The onetime boyband star AJ McClean and his dancing partner Cheryl Burke took their routine back to the ’90s with music provided by none other than Backstreet Boys. Their “Larger Than Life” routine was precisely that, as AJ’s BSB bandmates loomed large in the background as the tandem danced up a storm.
Judges Carrie Ann Inaba, Derek Hough and Bruno Tonioli awarded team McLean 24 out of 30, and they move on.
McLean isn’t the first Backstreet Boys member to chase DWTS glory. Nick Carter finished runner up during ABC’s 21st season.
