Last June, Backstreet Boys took the stage on NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”

Thursday, the group returns to the popular late-night program to support its new album “DNA.”

Thursday’s appearance naturally includes a show-closing musical performance from the iconic boy band. It also includes a “Bawkstreet Boys” comedy bit involving the group and “Tonight Show” host Jimmy Fallon.

Taped earlier in the day, the episode also features an appearance by Jada Pinkett Smith.

Thursday’s “Tonight Show” will begin at 11:35PM ET/PT on NBC. Ahead of the broadcast, the network shared a collection of first-look photos.
