Why is this better than almost all the other classroom instrument covers? Ain’t nothin like the no autotune 90’s

I can't get enough of hearing these guys sing this song, it's a sweet obsession that puts a smile on my face, but what I want to know is, do they get tired of people requesting them to sing it?

Jimmy: so you guys how bout you come on the show and perform, wait for it…"I Want It That Way"?!!!
BSB: ugh again 😵?!!!
Nick: that's it! If I have 2 sing "that" song ooonnnee more time, I'm out!
Jimmy: well how about we do it like this…
BSB: 🤔….

I think all musical guests appearing on Fallon's show must do a number with classroom instruments and The Roots.

Hello from Canada! Love you guys so much. I just went to your DNA World Tour in Toronto yesterday.

Yeah
You are my fire
The one desire
Believe when I say
I want it that way

But we are two worlds apart
Can't reach to your heart
When you say
That I want it that way

Tell me why
Ain't nothin' but a heartache
Tell me why
Ain't nothin' but a mistake
Tell me why
I never want to hear you say
I want it that way

Am I, your fire?
Your one, desire
Yes I know, it's too late
But I want it that way

Tell me why
Ain't nothin' but a heartache
Tell me why
Ain't nothin' but a mistake
Tell me why,
I never want to hear you say
I want it that way

Now I can see that we've fallen apart
From the way that it used to be, yeah
No matter the distance
I want you to know
That deep down inside of me

You are my fire
The one desire
You are (you are, you are, you are)

Don't want to hear you say
Ain't nothin'…

👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
BSB, THE ROOTS, JIMMY FALLON
AMAZING HARMONIES 👌🏼

I swear just when I think they can’t be anymore amazing they always have the upper hand lol this is awesome.. their talent is just unbelievable.. the roots are great too 😁😆

Yo, who was doing the low tom sound? I assumed it was Jimmy with a drum part infront of him, but it doesn't fully match up to the sound

See it’s all about having fun. No need to poke fun And laugh. They were a hit whether people liked it or not. Truth is we all know the words. Stop pretending you don’t lol
