WATCH: Backstreet Boys’ AJ McLean “I Wanted to Move Here [Israel], Like, Yesterday”

The Backstreet Boys heart Israel.

According to the Jerusalem Post

The Boys also scored points for their sheer love for Israel. After cancelling their first performance in the country in 2014 due to Operation Protective Edge, they made good on their promise and arrived for a rescheduled first appearance a year later.

Apparently, the Israel charm worked because the Boys made their adoration for the country clear.

“Good evening, Israel! Backstreet’s Back!,” McLean told the crowd. “We’re so beyond excited to be here for the second time. I assure you, it won’t be our last. I wanted to move here, like, yesterday.”

“Erev tov, Israel!” Kevin Richardson bellowed. “We didn’t think we’d be back this soon, but we are. And we’ll be back again and again!”

Hearing those words felt like a healing balm on an open wound after the recent surprising news that Natalie Portman will not becoming to Israel.
