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.
New Kids on the Block
The New Kids on the Block look amazing in their matching navy blue suits in their 'Remix (I Like The)' video, but they're merely background players. The real star of this clip is Artemis Pebdani. Famous for her role on 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,' she puts her comedic and dance chops to use.
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.
Everyone's taking quite the trip down memory lane lately. First we had the Spice Girls performing at the 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony, then it was 98 Degrees reuniting on 'The Today Show,' and now it's 98 Degrees again, performing with the Wanted and New Kids on the Block at the first-ever MixTape Festival in Hershey, Penn. We're not really complaining...
The New Kids on the Block have been around said block a few times, but in all the nearly three decades that they've been on the map, mustaches haven't really been appreciated. That didn't stop the 'Right Stuff' singers from growing them, much to the simultaneous chagrin and amusement of their fans. But like all good things, Donnie Wahlberg's time with his beloved stache is coming to an end.
