Nick Carter is still the focus of the Backstreet Boys and based on their live performance on Friday night… fans are backing him after a woman sued him for sexual harassment.
BSB took the stage at MSG for Jingle Ball – and sang the Wham! Classic, “Last Christmas” — and the crowd went wild, especially when Nick soloed the first verse. It was the group’s first appearance since Nick was accused of the 2001 attack.

TMZ ran the story… Shannon Ruth, who is autistic and suffers from cerebral palsy, filed a lawsuit Thursday, alleging Carter forced her to perform a sexual act on him on his tour bus. She was 17 then.
Nick denies the alleged incident ever happened, but as we reported…ABC has canceled a primetime Backstreet Boys Christmas special that was scheduled to air this coming week.
Several Nick Carter hashtags, including #IStandWithNickCarter, trended Friday in response to ABC’s move and the lawsuit.
Other cast members on Friday night included Dua Lipa, Lizzo and The Kid LAROI.
The all-star lineup also attracted plenty of NYC celebs in the audience…like Bethenny Frankel.
Good night everyone… but especially Nick.
