Fans can expect an epic group date when "The Bachelor" returns to ABC. Season 21 leading man Nick Viall recently escorted some of his prospective fiancées to a Backstreet Boys concert, where they performed a choreographed dance number.
'The Bachelor' Season 21 Group Date
Per E! News, Nick Viall, together with seven Season 21 contestants, went to a group date at a Backstreet Boys concert held at the iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles on Friday. The 36-year-old software sales executive made things more interesting when he and his dates performed a choreographed dance number on the concert stage.
At the end of the dance routine, the Backstreet Boys picked one contestant and gave her the chance to slow dance with Viall on stage. The mystery woman, who sported a brunette bob and tiny black shorts, danced with Viall as the Grammy-nominated group sang an acapella version of their hit song "I Want It That Way". The rest of the women were left on the side of the stage, watching Viall and the lucky lady cozying up.
The members of the Backstreet Boys also shared their impressions on the new ABC leading man. A.J. Mclean compared Viall to Ryan Reynolds, while Brian Littrell commented that the newest "Bachelor" got the dance moves aside from being handsome.
A witness told ET that Viall appeared to be having a great time. After the performance, the Backstreet Boys revealed that Viall and the seven Season 21 contestants had only an hour to practice for their dance routine.
In addition to the group date, the Backstreet Boys also hyped up the concert crowd by calling "Bachelor" alumni Becca Tilley (Season 20) and Ashley Iaconetti (Season 19) to join them on stage. The boyband serenaded the two ladies with their 1999 hit "Get Another Boyfriend".
Tilley and Iaconetti documented their concert experience and shared it on Snapchat. The ladies also captured the surprise performance of Viall and his seven dates.
