How did the Backstreet Boys get together?

AJ and Howie were auditioning for local plays in Orlando, Florida. They kept bumping into Nick then they formed a trio. Lou Pearlman discovered their singing and decided the trio needed to add a couple more voices to make the harmony richer. Lou had a friend who knew Kevin (who was working at Disneyworld at the time). Then he called his cousin Brian who was in Lexington, Kentucky. Brian was in class when he got the call from Kevin. Without thinking, Brian took a flight to Orlando the next day. Brian auditioned for the group and of course became a Backstreet Boy!

Where did their group name come from?

There was a market called "The Backstreet Market" in Orlando, Florida. It was a local teen hangout so the boys took Backstreet from it, added boys, BACKSTREET BOYS!!!
