We want a Backstreet Boys episode on Glee!

Backstreet Boys are band that began it's music career in 1993 and, to the surprise of some, are still creating music today. The Backstreet Boys are as worthy as Lady Gaga is of an episode. Lady Gaga is fairly new in the Pop music world but let us remember who helped revolutionize an era of music. Their success opened the doors to other Pop artists such as Britney Spears whom you've recently had on your show. The 90s had a great amount of boy bands but only one band surpassed such label, made history through their music, and survived; the Backstreet Boys.

We the undersigned request a Backstreet Boys episode on Glee, please.

Backstreet Boys are band that began it's music career in 1993 and, to the surprise of some, are still creating music today. The Backstreet Boys are as worthy as Lady Gaga is of an episode.

The 90s had a great amount of boy bands but only one band surpassed such label, made history through their music, and survived; the Backstreet Boys.


The band has sold 130 million records worldwide to date and has recently finished a successful tour which was followed by their latest album "This Is Us". They are still able to sell out concerts and they have a large worldwide fan base, some of which follow Glee as well. Many of us were teens when we first fell in love with the Backstreet Boys and have grown up to become dedicated followers, we have stayed with the band from the beginning and have welcome teens today to our world.

With many of their fans today being in their 20s to 30s I believe that not only will this episode on your show be another success but it can reel in viewers of a wide age range, leading to them following the series. Let's not forget those viewers that grew up listening to the Backstreet Boys on the radio, the great hits the band has produced are very well remembered by many. I also believe that most of the hit songs by the Backstreet Boys can be included nicely on your shows plot. Some of their hits fit great with the love triumphs, break ups, triangles and other types of relationships between characters on Glee.

The Backstreet Boys began their journey with such hits as "Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)%", "As Long As You Love Me", and the very popular"Everybody (Backstreets Back)". These tracks were all included in the self-titled album "Backstreet Boys", which when released in 1997 became one of the most successful debut albums of all time thus being certified platinum 14 times. Six (6) years later in 2003, this album was reported as the second highest selling album in 14 years. The album along with their first album (not released in the U.S.), Backstreets Back, sold a combined 32 million albums worldwide.

Their second worldwide release, and highly anticipated album, "Millennium", entered the Billboard 200 at number 1 where it stayed for a remainder of 10 non-consecutive weeks selling 1,134,000 copies in its first week of release. It was nominated 5 times for a Grammy Awards and produced four Top40 singles including, "I Want It That Way", "Show Me The Meaning Of Being Lonely", "Larger Than Life" which are some of the most remembered hits of all time. Since it's release it has become one of the best selling albums of all time. This album eventually came to sell 13 million copies in the United States alone and it was also certified platinum 13 times. Millennium dominated the worldwide charts, landing the number-one spot in 25 countries.

"Black & Blue", their third U.S. release, sold 1.6 million records in it's first week of release. This made them the first group in Soundscan history to have over a million first-week sales with back-to-back albums. Worldwide this album sold 5million on its first week of sales. Also in it's week of release, the album achieved platinum status in over 30 countries and gold certification in 10 regions around the world. This album sold 24 million albums worldwide.

Since these releases the Backstreet Boys have released 3 more albums all which have debuted on the top 10 on the Billboard200, this makes them the first group since Sade to have their first seven albums reach top 10 on the chart.

In addition to their success the Backstreet Boys have stayed a genuine group of people. They are very appreciative of their fans and do their best for them which is the reason why many of us are still devoted to the band not just because of their music but the Boys (as fnas like to call them) as individuals.

I ask that you consider our request and bring it to the attention of your co-workers; creators, writers, and cast. Thank you for taking the time out of your already busy schedule to read this.
