Watch Backstreet Boys’ AJ McLean Take Carrie Underwood’s Cry Pretty Challenge

September 23, 2018

Backstreet Boys singer AJ McLean is joining Brad Paisley in demonstrating that — contrary to Carrie Underwood's hit single, "Cry Pretty" — he actually can cry pretty.

Underwood recently debuted a new Snapchat filter that lets fans emulate the glittery tears featured on the cover of her hit single, and she challenged fans to post the results online using the hashtag #CryPrettyChallenge.

McLean could not resist having a little fun with the unique new feature. In the video above — which Underwood reposted from his Instagram — he applies the filter and comically mouths along as Underwood's recent Top 10 hit plays in the background, making exaggerated faces of deep sorrow as Underwood emotes.  Despite the campy theatrics and the fake tears, McLean's legions of female fans would probably argue that he still looks as good as ever doing it.
