In preparation for their upcoming summer tour, boy-band all-stars NKOTBSB braved the treacherous floor of the Dancing With the Stars set on Tuesday to promote their joint single “Don’t Turn Off the Lights.” (If it seems like a random performance venue, remember Joey McIntyre was part of the first class of DWTS celebs back in 2005. Double nostalgia!) The guys delivered the signature pop sounds to a satisfactory degree and executed the formulaic, if not robotic, dance moves that would likely receive low marks from Bruno and the DWTS judges. Yet probably the most important takeaway was that the aging heartthrobs proved they still have what it takes to elicit screams from female audience members. They may look a little older, but their cheesy stage presence (hello, closing poses) brought things back to days of “I Want It That Way” and “Step By Step,” and for that, we can’t really complain.
The NKOTBSB tour kicks off on May 25. Commit the dance moves to memory by watching the performance below.
