Man Crush Monday: @NickCarter is ‘just what we needed’

To see Nick Carter sing a cover song from the 1980’s is to live. 

During Nick’s “Now or Never” tour (his first solo tour), he performed a cover of The Cars’ “Just What I Needed.” It was probably one of my favorite parts of that tour. He did his little crazy dancing in his Nick way and I can’t listen to the song now without thinking of it.

Here’s a video of him performing it in 2003 at Acafest.

This past March (2016), he performed the song during soundcheck at the last show on his American leg of the “All American” tour in Nashville.

I about flipped my shit. I kid you not. I flipped out so much that I barely got to record it but my amazing little Hannah did.

And Nick Carter singing “Just What I Needed” while playing the guitar is that much hotter.



I'm a 30-something-year-old fangirl from Georgia, but basically grew up in Florida. I'm a former journalist, but still a writer, blogger and fangirl 24/7. Nick Carter owns me and Joey McIntyre has had my heart since 1987. I've been obsessed with "Friends" since 1995 and love Jay and Silent Bob.
