The New Kids on the Block reunited on the Today show Friday morning, as expected. No longer kids, the guys still have screaming fans turn out in droves to see them together again. From the article about the appearance:
McIntyre and fellow band members Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood and Jordan and Jonathan Knight have been writing songs and planning their return since last August. They wanted to keep their reunion a secret, but rumors leaked out earlier this year.
"We weren't going to announce this yet, but the story leaked on People.com," Wahlberg said, his voice barely audible above the shrieks of young women and girls who were barely alive when the band broke up 14 years ago. "We thought we'd better come out and let them know it's official."
