How did the Backstreet Boys become famous?

The Backstreet Boys first formed in Orlando, Florida after Dorough and McLean met each other through a mutual vocal coach.

They then met Carter through auditions and decided to form a trio.

Richardson was living in Kentucky but relocated to Orlando in 1990 to work at Walt Disney World.

A coworker from the theme park introduced him to Carter, Dorough, and McLean and all four decided to let Richardson in their group.

Littrell, who is cousins with Richardson, eventually joined the band in 1993 after record producer Lou Perlman placed an ad in the Orlando Sentinel to compose a vocal group.

They first performed as a group at SeaWorld Orlando in 1993 and then traveled to Sweden to record some songs.

Their first album broke all major records in Europe, especially in Germany, and quickly became one of the most successful debut artists in the world.
