Commenting on any competion with his boyband rival Justin Timberlake of Nsync, who is releasing Justified the week following his October 29th release.

Backsteet Boys on Sesame Street
It seems like the Backsteet Boys have been real crowed pleasers lately, as they have been catering to every age in their audience range. Young fans of BSB can catch the boys on Sesame Street, performing a song called One Small Voice with famous figures like Elmo, Cookie Monster, Grover and more. For slightly older fans, the Backstreet Boys can be seen as rabbit (Brian and Howie) and bears (Kevin, Nick, and AJ.) on the PBS cartoon Arthur. They will perform a song on the show, and special behind-the-scenes footage will air after the show. Even though the Backstreet Boys are huge crowd pleasers, they also don't mind pleasing themselves once in a while. Fellow Boy Nick Carter did so by purchasing a 43-foot raceboat. He and his father, Bob Carter, will pilot the boat during the APBA's Super Vee Class races. One of the main reasons I'm getting into this is my father, said Nick. It's a dream come true for him. Although the Carter family has participated in offshore boat racing before, we sure hope Nick doesn't come back to Backstreet black & blue!
