Backstreet Boys‘ minute-long condensed version of their single “Show ‘Em (What You’re Made Of)” for VH1’s Stop/Watch is simply gorgeous. They sound just like you remember them live in the ’90s and early oughts. So, if BSB’s sound is frozen in time, does this mean we all still look as young as listening to this song makes us feel? Let’s just go with yes.
Our totes fave boy band 4ever isn’t the only act stepping up to our 60-second music challenge. Newly minted VH1 Soul You Oughta Know artist Liv Warfield reworked her Prince-penned tune “The Unexpected,” while Celeste Buckingham got our hearts racing with “Run Run Run.” Check out our video gallery to see if they all beat the clock, plus listen to exclusive interviews from all three acts on how they made it happen. Backstreet Boys worked up their arrangement the morning they arrived on set! Guess they showed us.
You’re obviously addicted now. Lucky for you, we’ll be thawing your little hearts with your favorite artists’ hot new attempts to rock the clock every Monday, all winter long. In the meantime, watch last year’s Stop/Watch performances from A Great Big World, 2AM Club, Sara Bareilles and more on stopwatch.vh1.com!
