The Backstreet Boys have cemented their place in pop history by unveiling their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Singers Nick Carter, A.J. MCLean, Brian Littrell, Howie Dorough and Kevin Richardson marked their 20th anniversary in style on Monday (22Apr13) as they were honoured with the 2,495th star on Hollywood Boulevard.

Prior to the special ceremony, Carter took to his page to write, "Huge day. Receiving a star on Hollywood blvd. Wow! Thank you to all our fans."

And Littrell made the most of his moment in the spotlight by lying down on his pavement plaque to take a snap of his shocked face. Sharing the image on, he comments, "In Stone!!!! Thank God".
