Legendary German Singer Helene Fischer Joins Backstreet Boy Nick Carter For Stunning Medley

Since releasing her debut album in 2006, pop singer Helene Fischer has grown to become one of Germany’s best-known performers. This was proved in part by the popularity of her yearly television special, ‘Die Helene Fischer Show’, which aired on German television every Christmas from 2011 to 2019. One of the show’s segments would involve Fischer teaming up with another famous artist to perform some of their hits, with the likes of Olly Murs, Tom Jones, and Queen previously appearing.

In 2020, meanwhile, Backstreet Boy and solo artist Nick Carter appeared on the show, teaming up with Fischer to deliver a polished five-minute medley of some of the Backstreet Boys’ hits. Kicking off with the 1996 global hit ‘Quit Playing Games (With My Heart)’, from the outset it was clear that this performance was going to be slick and entertaining, with Carter’s vocals sounding almost indistinguishable from his group’s hit-making days, and Fischer delivering angelic harmonies alongside him.

The pair proceeded to rattle through numerous other iconic Backstreet Boys tracks, notably the timeless ‘I Want It That Way’ – during which the duo were joined by numerous backing dancers – and ‘Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)’, which was greeted with excited cheers and applause by the live audience. By the end, the entire room was on their feet and dancing, proving beyond doubt that, like many of the other collaborations featured on Fischer’s show, the performance had been a huge success.

Another equally successful but very different moment on Fischer’s show came that same year, when she dueted with Andrea Bocelli on ‘The Prayer’, which was originally a collaboration between Bocelli and Celine Dion in 1999. Fischer and Bocelli’s performance was simultaneously celestial and powerful, showcasing the incredible range of both artists. One fan even felt that their version of the track was better than the original, saying that “not even Celine Dion sung it so perfectly with [Bocelli]”

Although they couldn’t be more different from each other, Fischer’s performances with Carter and Bocelli were both hugely entertaining to watch. The former was a fun-packed five minutes of pure pop, and the latter a graceful and elegant take on a beautiful ballad. Both performances are also testament to Fischer’s incredible diversity as a singer; clearly, she is as comfortable belting out ’90s hits as she is sharing a stage with an Italian tenor, a commendable feat in itself.
