But the fans grew up and the group broke up in 1994. (nats of Jordan)
Some five years later the heartthrob of the group, Jordan knight, is back on stage.
He has a new album and a single that's already gone platinum.

And Knight has returned to familiar territory, opening up for N'Sync and perhaps passing on some words of wisdom.

"KNIGHT: I BELIEVE THEY WOULD SAY AND ALL THE BACKSTREET BOYS WOULD SAY THEY WERE INSPIRED BY US AND THAT'S A COMPLIMENT TO ME AND REST OF THE GUYS."
And being away from the guys gives knight creative control.
