Bsbprincess2213 from the Backstreet Boys forum at LiveDaily.com attended New York radio station WBLI’s Jingle Jam Concert. She came to see Nick Carter. She says “He was so awesome!!! I’m so proud of him. He sang ‘Blow Your Mind’, ‘My Confession’, ‘Do I Have to Cry for You’, ‘Help Me’, ‘Payback’, ‘I Got You’, ‘I Just Wanna Take You Home’, and he did an old song by The Cars.” He was also “pouring water on his head and the crowd, goofing off, stripping and just be Nick!” Two *NSYNC fans attending the concert booed Nick during his set. Bsbprincess2213 told the haters, “They better watch out after the concert.” After the show, she bought a large soda and “poured it over the 2 girls, they were both wearing white!” She told them, “You know soda especially orange is hard to get out of white clothes… and by the way that’s for booing Nick, my friend and I left laughing.”
