Backstreet's back, alright!

Today we have a pop-tastic music show. The boy band that defined the genre, Backstreet Boys, are on their biggest world tour in a decade. As they hit France with their latest album "In a World Like This", Jade Barker and France 24 music critic Mariam Saab take a look back at their 20 years of record-making hits.

Plus, gagging over Gaga. American singer Lady Gaga is known for her flamboyant outfits and shocking antics but she outdid herself during her performance at the SXSW festival. We analyse how fans and musicians are reacting to her use of "vomit" art in her show.

Finally, no pop profile would be complete without the princess of pop herself. As Kylie Minogue releases a new album, “Kiss Me Once”, we ask how she has managed to stay at the top of her game after more than 25 years of making music.
