A.J. McLean was a member of the Backstreet Boys.
Adam Evans asked A.J. to sign a deal with him. However, Marvin Roper also wanted a record deal, but he had one failing: his music was bad. So Replikon kidnapped A.J. and stored him in "Stone Gas Records", a record store where Adam and Marvin used to work. Impersonating A.J., Marvin then got Lester Biggs to sign a record deal with him. Static figured out it wasn't really A.J. and saved the real one. Later, Adam Evans signed the deal with A.J., already becoming a star.
Backstreet Boy Alexander James "A.J". McLean played himself in "Duped".
