New Kids On The Block - Boyz Ii Men Play Surprise Set At New Kids/backstreet Gig
New Kids On The Block and the Backstreet Boys thrilled fans in Florida on Friday (22Jul11) by bringing Boyz Ii Men onstage for a surprise set.
The two pop groups, who are currently touring the U.S. in a joint trek, made their gig at Orlando's Amway Center extra special by recruiting the R&B icons to perform.
Boyz II Men treated the crowd to a short set of their hits, before singing their ballad End of the Road with help from both New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys, who are originally from Orlando.
The homecoming gig was especially poignant for Backstreet Boy Howie Dorough, who invited his mum Paula onstage.
He told the crowd, "It feels so good to be back in Orlando, where it all started for the Backstreet Boys."
After the show, the Backstreet Boys shared their excitement with fans with a post on Twitter.com, which read: "Orlando was insane tonight!! Love you All, hope everyone enjoyed the surprise. Boyz ll Men nailed it."
