||.||A.J. McLean, a young man with a big, beautiful bass voice is the designated
flirt of the Backstreet Boys. A.J.
has been singing and entertaining since he was six years old. His
first theatrical production cast him in the role of 'Dopey' in "Snow
White and the Seven Dwarfs". He followed this debut with parts
in "The Nutcracker", "Fiddler On The Roof", and "The King
And I". A.J. had appeared in 27 plays by the time he was twelve
years old. He is an all around talent, not only can he sing and act,
he's a natural dancer. He learned ballet, jazz and hip-hop.
He puts all of his talents to good use during their live shows.
A.J. was cast in the Nickelodeon series "Welcome Freshmen" and auditioned for other Nickelodeon shows and also Disney projects. He met Howie and Nick at one of these auditions and the roots of the Backstreet Boys were planted.
A.J. enjoys everything about being in a group like the Backstreet Boys. The travel, performing, and fans are great, but sometimes the extent of their fame amazes him. It's just not as easy as it used to be to go out to a club or even shopping. A.J. loves the fans though and will always stop to sign an autograph or have a picture taken.
The Backstreet Boys have labeled A.J. the flirt and also Mr. Talkative. If he isn't flirting, he's on the phone. Usually he's calling his family in Florida. They all agree that he's very good at talking. He's a good storyteller and he'll tell stories for hours, sometimes they're true, sometimes made up.
Of all the Backstreet Boys, A.J. admits he is the most girl crazy. The first thing he notices are a girls' eyes, he says he can tell so much about a person looking into the eyes. A.J. prefers long hair but short hair is fine too. A.J. says he was raised to respect women and he is quoted as saying, "I'm the type of guy who likes to be there 24-7. I'm Mr. Roses. I'll sing outside your window. I'm as old fashioned as they come." A.J. wishes all the adoring girls now were around when he was in high school.
