The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and his house band The Roots brought back their popular classroom instruments segment, this time covering the Backstreet Boys’ "I Want It That Way" alongside all five members of the American vocal group.

Dressed in all white, reminiscent of the original "I Want It That Way" music video, Backstreet Boys members Nick Carter, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, AJ McLean and Kevin Richardson joined The Tonight Show crew to play their 1999 hit.

The classroom instruments remix involved a tambourine, melodica, ukulele, kazoo and wood block.

During their live musical performance on the late-night show, the group performed “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” their first new song in years.

“I want to create new memories. We’ve been singing the same songs for almost 25 years,” Littrell told PEOPLE. “It’s not that we’re not excited to sing our old hits, but we want to grow, too. We don’t want to be stuck in what was. We want to continue to grow with our fans.” (sul/wng)
