The '90s wouldn't have been the same without Hanson and Mariah Carey. (Editor's note: In fact, our whole lives wouldn't be the same without them: Hanson was not one, but two of our editors' favorite bands growing up, and the first CD one of our editors ever owned was a Mariah Carey album.) Hanson's 'MMMBop' and Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men's 'One Sweet Day' are both songs that were made for turning up on the radio in the car. Musically, they're very different -- but lyrically, they're both really emotional, relatable tracks. Which song would you choose as the Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era?
Boyz II Men
NKOTB, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men, who are on the road together as the Package Tour, brought the '90s to the 'Today' show this morning (May 30) in New York City. The boy bands, who were at their respective peaks in the 1990s, proved that they are incredibly viable two decades later by demonstrating flawless dance moves while delivering their delightfully harmonized pop.
Children of the '90s, rejoice! Less than a year after wrapping up their hugely successful boy band tour with the Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block will try to repeat that success by heading out on the road this summer with 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men. And this isn't just a nostalgia tour — NKOTB announced that they have a brand new single and album on the way too!
New Kids on the Block member Jordan Knight, easily the hunkiest in the renewed boy band, is like a younger, thinner and more handsome Santa Claus in the amazeballs Jordan Knight Before Christmas Old Navy spot. He gets an assist from the Boyz II Men crew, who are from his generation of pop music, as well as crooner Johnny Mathis.
Does a diva have to be female?
VH1 obviously doesn't think so. The network is bringing viewers another gala round of diva-licious entertainment -- and this time, they've invited a few fellas to join in the fun. This year's 'VH1 Divas' lineup includes Chaka Khan, Kelly Clarkson, Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu, Travie McCoy, and Boyz II Men.
If you watched Justin Bieber perform on 'Dancing With the Stars' last night, singing 'Never Say Never' and then 'Fa La La' with Boyz II Men, you probably got super excited and dreamt about what the video for the collab might look like!
