Nick Carter Returns To The Stage, Dedicates Performance To Leslie

| Filed under: Music MinuteSad SadNick CarterPerezTV

We're amazed and impressed by his strength.

Last night, Nick Carter returned to the stage and performed a show at NYC's Irving Plaza.

During the show, he dedicated his song Falling Down (above) to his sister Leslie Carter, who passed away earlier this week at the age of 25.

A truly moving and lovely performance. Leslie would be proud.

    This breaks my heart. It was a beautiful performance & I'm sure Leslie would be proud. I pray for the whole family and I pray that Leslie is now resting peacefully in a place where she's no longer in pain. Mental illness isn't a joke.. But now she is free from the prison that her own mind placed her in and hopefully able to watch over all those she loves, especially her daughter.

    So heartbreaking……I can't wait until 2/10 to see Nick in concert and simply let him know I love him. He's so sweet and loves his family and fans.

    People there said he was sobbing offstage immediately after this beautiful performance. God knows when he wrote the words to this song he never thought…..Rest in peace Leslie. Peace and prayers to this family.

    Gross! This is awful. I mean, is the body even cold yet? Way to give it 2 whole days before working the sympathy publicity Nick. My guess is he'll be making the rounds on esteemed programs like The Insider, Entertainment Tonight, and The Talk in 3, 2….

    Why isn't Perez reporting on how she died??

    Leslie is probably more likely saying, why aren't you taking the time off to grieve me. Don't you have enough money?

    @QueenMab: He was sobbing after the performance. I was at the concert last night. I don't think there was one dry eye in that room. It was truly an emotional and heartbreaking experience. It took him a minute or two before he came back on stage and fans kept chanting. And when he did come back on stage, he said "let's celebrate her life, god dammit, play the song," and then "i want it that way" came on. You could hear the PAIN in his voice, when he sang, even especially during "incomplete." It takes a lot of BALLS AND COURAGE..and strength within himself to continue and sing for his fans. Singing to us is his therapy, it's cathartic for him and no one like GOSSIPGUY has the right to JUDGE how he wants to cope with the loss of his sister. And just to let you know, the day she passed away, Nick DIDN'T EVEN know — he found out after he performed in South Carolina, so really it's not even a publicity stunt. He's in shock and in denial.

    @annoulzz Completely agree. For someone like Gossipguy to judge someone on how they mourn and deal with grief is pathetic. He has had these dates set up for months and instead of cancelling he decided to go on because playing and music is his therapy and it is his way to get him through it. To judge someone for how they heal isnt right. I agree with perez, his strength is amazing.

    I cant imagine there being a dry eye in the house and he is clearly upset! Nick, your in all of your fans thoughts and prayers.

    This was very sweet, but he is a horrible singer. It was a stroke of luck that he became famous but it's bewildering how he is still getting work.

    People grieve in their own way. My father passed away on a Saturday and I went to work that Monday. I did it to keep myself busy and from utterly breaking down. I think this was lovely, and I dont think it was for attention.

    That was so sad. What a horrible loss. She is way to young. Regardless fof how she died..they lost a family member. Very very sad.



  12. 12

    Beautiful, and very well done.

    Leslie carter died at the hospital 15 minutes from my house in a little tiny town called westfield ny. And the sheriffs office just released the c.o.d as a prescription drug overdose this morning. Of course her brother is trying to make money off his sisters death…hes a has been boy band member with no skills.

    So Sad. So heartfelt. Some of these comments are beautiful. The others should not judge, I just consider them youngsters that haven't felt the pain of true loss yet, but one day they will.

    I am a huge BSB fan.. I've been to maybe 8 or 9 of their concerts and this is the second I've seen Nick on his own and it was so sad to watch him. After he dedicated this song to his sister we all teared up and for the rest of the concert you could see how sad he was. After he came back out onto the stage after this song he was still crying and he sang with tears running down his face. I really feel horrible for him and I think he did a great job.

    Re: GossipGuy13 – When some1 close 2 u dies…sometimes you don't know what to do or how deal with it. So why not do the one thing he does know how to do???? He probably feels he needs to be doing something….Back off!!!

    Re: ccmommy34 – Its amazing how a celebs family member dies and with some people it brings out the asshole in them.



  18. 18

    To pass away at such a young age, it's just incredibly sad. Something is wrong with this family. Almost all of the kids have a drug problem and serious psychological issues. When one sees something like this, one can almost be sure that it can be traced back to their parents.

    Re: mamaboots – He has a beautiful voice so you can fuck right off.



  20. 20

    Nick is not a terrible singer! He has never been the best singer in the BSB, but he sings well and is so nice.
