Days of our Lives is getting a big dose of 90s star power that might be more head-turning than Marlena's devil possession storyline. Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean has revealed that he is headed to Salem!
The Florida native posted a video to TikTok to announce the good news, and he revealed that he is over the moon because DAYS has a very special place in his heart.
"There was a certain daytime TV show that my grandmother and I used to watch when I was growing up, and I'll drop a couple of hints [about which one it was]," he began the video. "Bo... Hope... Patch... Ring a bell?" (Um, of course it does, AJ! Bo and Hope are as American as apple pie!)
The singer went on to share, "Yours truly is making a guest appearance as a driver... Boom!"
Thanks to everyone here today making my experience on "DOOL"! A success. Love to the cast and everyone that made this dream come true! Let's go!♬ original sound - AJ McLean
As if his upcoming appearance isn't enough to make fans swoon, McLean went the extra mile by sharing that he is just as excited about appearing on DAYS as all of the soap's fans are about having him.
"Oh, my God, I'm freaking out," he exclaimed, adding, "I hope I made you proud, Grandma!"
DAYS hasn't revealed when McLean will be making his appearance as a driver, so keep checking back to Soap Central for updates as they come.
Backstreet Boys is a super popular boy band that consists of McLean, Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Kevin Richardson, and Brian Littrell. They shot to stardom in the mid-90s with songs like "I Want It That Way," "As Long As You Love Me," "Everybody (Backstreet's Back)," and "Quit Playing Games."
The group recently shared that they will be performing on the Las Vegas Strip with "A Very Backstreet Christmas Party," a series of twelve holiday shows at the Planet Hollywood resort. For tickets and more information, check out the Backstreet Boys' official website.
