On Saturday night, New Kids on the Block did a concert at Radio City Music Hall. Good stuff, right (the “right stuff,” I daresay)? And as the NKOTB were doing a soulful rendition of “I Want It That Way,” the curtain rose and who else should appear but the Backstreet Boys? They all finished out the song together, then had some loving man hugs to conclude the earth-shattering performance.
I’m a little too young to have been a real New Kids on the Block fan, but my sister was not, so I was rocking out to “Please Don’t Go Girl” and “Quit Playing Games With My Heart” at the same time, and my twelve-year-old mind never imagined that these two powerhouses of music could come together in such a culmination of wondrousness*. Donnie Wahlberg showed some similar fan-girling on Twitter:
As for TONIGHTS Concert…. BACKSTREET BOYS got my respect forever! That was awesome! What a night!
I smell a tour. Please let me smell a tour.
