Watch Meghan Trainor Live Out Her '90s Dream By Singing With The Backstreet Boys

She wants it that way.

When one of today's biggest pop stars performs with the biggest boy band of the '90s, what do you call it? A duet? A sextet? A dream come true?

Regardless of the terminology, on Thursday night's Greatest Hits, Meghan Trainor performed "I Want It That Way" with the Backstreet Boys, and we can't stop singing along.

This week's episode was all about hits from 1995 to 2000, and it simply wouldn't have been complete without an appearance from Brian, A.J., Howie, Nick and Kevin. And who better to share the stage with them than an artist who grew up listening to their music?

Before the performance, Meghan admitted, "Singing with the Backstreet Boys is definitely a bucket-list moment," adding that they were the first band she loved as a kid. 

Let's just say that when it came to Brian Littrell, Meghan's name was definitely "Yes."


The guys treated Meghan like an honorary member of the group, as they all donned matching white jackets and even showed off a little synchronized choreography.

At the end of the song, A.J. McLean made Meghan feel even more special by singing the last line as "I want it Meghan's way." 

If Meghan's way gets us more performances like this, I'm pretty sure we all do.
