I thank the voices in my head for talking me out of dragging my lazy ass down to NBC on this rainy day for the big New Kids on the Block reunion on “Today” this morning. That shit looks like it was put together with a few quarters from the change jar and a couple of pieces of chewed up Trident.
What the hell was with that rinky dinky ass stage?! I was hoping they were going to drop from the skies above like 5 angels from the 80s. No fireworks even! Shit, they could have at least had Meredith Vieira hold a sparkler! Instead, they were unveiled on some puppet show stage that looked like it was made by a group of 6-year-olds during long recess.
The crowd of 30-something women still seemed excited. Anyway, yes they announced their BIG reunion. I’m walking away with a bad taste in my mouth and no it wasn’t from last night’s business! This was some cable access bullshit! I wanted fanfare!
NKOTB announced they are back and will perform on Today next month. Yes, they went on the show to announce the date of their reunion. WTF! They could have at least broke into an a cappella version of “Tonight.” I mean….damn!
