Back in November ABC broadcast the American Music Awards. Like the MTV video/movie awards, I rarely watch this show anymore either. However, this year I tuned in (well set the DVR!) because of one act. My beloved New Kids On The Block were going to perform. The only down-side/weird thing about it was that they had teamed up with The Backstreet Boys and this was their first performance as a "new" group before going on tour together.
For the most part, I enjoyed this performance. The beginning of "I Want It That Way" was AWFUL...he was COMPLETELY off key. They did a good job of making their songs into medleys. And I really enjoyed the last 2-3 minutes of it. I think it was clear which group still "has" it, and which group needs to just go away! (and yes, I mean NKOTB is the better group!!!)
Would I pay to see a concert by both groups? I would never pay to see The Backstreet Boys; but having only seen NKOTB once in my life, and missing the opportunity to see them when their latest album came out, yes, I would pay to see NKOTB!
