Backstreet Boys take the stage in full Spice Girls drag

While the world waits with bated breath for the Spice Girls to announce an expected reunion tour, another 90s group is spicing the void in our lives left by the fab five.

The Backstreet Boys — remember them? — stepped out on their sixth fan cruise this week in Spice Girls drag, serving up a rollicking rendition of “Wannabe”.

And because you need to know, here’s how the roles were divvied up:

Nick Carter as Baby Spice (Emma Bunton)

AJ McLean as Scary Spice (Melanie Brown)

Kevin Richardson as Posh Spice (Victoria Beckham)

Howie Dorough as Ginger (Geri Halliwell)

Brian Littrell as Sporty (Melanie Chisholm)

In an Instagram post of the performance, the group wrote, “Celebrating all of the girl power that’s kept us going for 25 years.”

Here’s video proof that the gang posted to their Instagram story:
