Backstreet Boys is honored with the 2,485th star, which is located between Boys II Men's and The Osmonds', after celebrating their 20th anniversary.
Backstreet Boys gets immortalized on Hollywood Walk of Fame. The band that made its debut on April 20, 1993, received the 2,485th star on the famous street on Monday, April 22. The band's producer Max Martin, families and fans went to the ceremony to support the band's members, Brian Littrell, A.J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter and Kevin Richardson, who looked emotional during the event.
A.J. said, "I love you guys. And aside from my wedding day and the birth of my daughter, this is hands-down the best day of my life." The teary-eyed Nick added, "I never ever imagined in a million years that we would be a part of this." Brian jokingly told the crowd, "I worked my entire life to never be walked on, but I'm OK with this one."
Howie said, "I will one day be able to bring my family here. My kids will be able to bring their kids here and still be able to see the legacy that the Backstreet Boys have carried on for many years." Kevin concluded, "What a beautiful day. What another beautiful way to celebrate 20 years together."
Backstreet Boys officially got together again with all of the members last year. After celebrating their 20th anniversary in a concert with fans on Saturday, the band will release an album this summer and start a tour in May. In addition, they plan to release a music documentary in 2014.
