If you thought that Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were a pop music match, just wait until you hear this. Nick Carter admitted that a bunch of the Backstreet Boys had crushes on the Spice Girls, and we can’t even imagine how perfect that would have been.

Carter has been working with “Baby Spice” Emma Bunton on the show Boy Band, and according to Carter, the two have known each other for quite some time. But Carter was quick to rat out Howie Dorough for being the bandmate who thought she was super cute back in the ’90s.

Even so, he got to know Bunton a lot better based on the show.

Dorough wasn’t the only member of the Backstreet Boys to admit feelings. A.J. McLean added that he was a little bit smitten with Victoria Beckham and Geri Halliwell around that time.

Speaking of Dorough, he admitted that he wouldn’t rule out a collaboration with the girls in the future. We’d totally buy tickets to that tour.

We can imagine how nice it must have been to tour around with individuals who also understood the industry. And while nothing came of these crushes, it’s pretty amazing that both the Backstreet Boys and the Spice Girls continue to have so much respect for each other.
