New Kids are Back!

Posted by Mandy at 6:45 AM

If you saw the Today Show this morning, you probably watched with a mix of elation and horror as the now 40ish year old NKOTB took the stage and performed all of their old hits. They sound quite different now that they've hit pueberty... but it was still a nice trip back into time to see them doing the same cheesy dances and singing the songs from my youth.
Where is my 'Hangin' Tough' sleeping bag, anyways....
I have to admit, when I saw Donnie Wahlberg on stage... I wasn't sure how to react. I never liked him when I was young... he couldn't hold a candle to my curly headed, blue-eyed Joey... but now DW is one of my favorite actors... and here he is, kinda making a fool of himself! Ack! How can this be the same guy from Band of Brothers and Saw? Where's the tough military guy? The tortured detective? Oh... there he is... doing the shuffle dance on stage. Ai-Yi-Yi....
So, all of you New Kids fans... THEY'RE BACK! They're on TV right now.. I'm curious to hear what they're new music will sound like and what they'll sing about. Will the NKOTB write songs about childbirth and marriage? Will fans respond to this? I know I'm not the only Kew Kids fan... who's STILL a fan out there? And, is anyone else a little icked out by the comeback?
These are the important things in life... ;)

Yeah I think its kinda weird too.i mised it this morning.But they seemed to be fitting into a new niche,the old bands regrouped and/or reformed 20 years later, one...

Boy bands aren't really all that "in" right now(other than the Jonas bros,are they considered a boy band or does it have to be 4 or more?) so I think it will be interesting to watch what unfolds.

Shows how much I know. I didn't even know that one of them acted.

I've heard a lot of excitement about this. Maybe I was too young or out-of-touch when they were a big hit. ;-)

How old are you, Wendy? I think the only reason I ever was excited over them was b/c of my big sister. She is 6 years older than I am, so whatever she was into, I was into! *I'm soon to turn 25 by the way... so I think I was too young back in the day to like them much on my own.

NKOTB!!! Oh, I was smitten back in the day! Jordan was my favorite...and he just had a b-day yesterday!! Ok...the reason I know that, is b/c he had the same b-day as Clay, and I had a huge crush on my hubby at the same time I was in love with NKOTB.

I missed it t.v...but I saw it over the internet...and I was just cracking up! They were singing their old songs, and actually all DANCING together....now that was retarted to me. I think they could have just forgone the dancing since they are SO OLD! LOL I have a feeling they will flop. And BTW...your sister is the same age as me!

Well, I haven't hit 30 yet. I guess I just wasn't into the "cool stuff" in my day!

no wayyyy. are they gross looking? i bet jordan was either really old-guy hairy or had spent the whole day before getting waxed by Matt Lauer's beauticians, cuz didn't he have fru-fru hair and bushy eyebrows? i was obsessed with him, but i always thought joey was stupid cuz of the darned black hat he always wore. i'ma go find em on youtube. thanks for this blog! You've got 'the right stuff.' :)
