Singer Nick Carter of boy band Backstreet Boys turns 29 years old on Wednesday, January 28, but he threw an earlier celebration at the Key Club in Hollywood on Monday night, January 26. Fellow band members; Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean, were seen among the guests, which included former NSYNC member JC Chasez and Nick's younger brother, Aaron Carter.
"They shut off all the lights and did a surprise for Nick downstairs early in the night," a witness said. "They all yelled surprise and they had cupcakes for him." Guests were treated to a tower of Sprinkles cupcakes and to a live performance by the house band, Steel Panther.
Later that night, Nick took the stage and delivered a performance of Journey's single "Don't Stop Believin'". It "looked like he had a great time," so another source said of the birthday guy, adding that "Nick was good. He and his friends were just laughing up a storm in their VIP booth."
