BACKSTREET BOYS: On The X Factor, The Voice, And American Idol: Which Is Their Favorite?

Wetpaint Entertainment caught up with Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, and Brian Littrell of The Backstreet Boys at Perez Hilton’s Mad Hatter Tea Party Birthday Bash on Saturday, March 24, where they performed for the birthday boy. During the party, which was held at Siren Studios in L.A., the crooners weighed in on America’s three biggest reality singing competitions: American Idol, The X Factor, and The Voice.
Wetpaint Entertainment: So you’ve obviously been around for a long time and are really big idols to a lot of people out there. Would you ever consider being on Idol and being a judge?

Nick Carter: If they want us. If they’ll let us.

Howie Dorough: If the price is right.

Nick: No, no of course.

Howie: That’s very flattering.

Nick: Yeah, heck yeah! I think one of our songs was actually performed by a couple of the artists on the show a couple of times but if they want us, we’re there with flying bells and whistles, however you want to say us.

Did you see the video of people doing your songs on Idol and did they do it justice?

Nick: Yeah it was actually X Factor — that young girl. She killed it.

Brian Littrell: Yes and on The Voice a guy did “I Want it That Way.”

Was it good?

Howie: Yeah. Of course he didn’t make it.

Brian: Yeah he did a great job.

Howie: He didn’t make it but I think he did a great job.

Have you ever tuned in and seen any of the blooper episodes where people are butchering the hell out of one of your songs?

Nick: Nah.

Brian: I mean we’ve kind of butchered the hell out of our songs too so it’s all good.

Howie: I saw where Christina Aguilera forgot the guy that was one of the Mickey Mouse Club boys. She came back and was like, “Hey. Oh yeah.”

Do you have a favorite out of all the singing shows — Idol, X Factor, The Voice?

Nick: Oh you mean out of the different types of shows? I like The Voice.

Brian: I mean Simon is going to be the most successful.

Howie: Believe it or not, the season that Adam Lambert was on, I thought was probably to me one of the strongest ones I thought.

Are you watching Idol now?

Howie: A little bit here and there when we have some time off.
