Bring on the Screams: 5 Unforgettable VMA Boy Band Moments

Originally posted 08/21/2014 11:00AM

Get ready for another potential OMG boy band moment: 5 Seconds of Summer is about to make its debut on the MTV Video Music Awards.

The Australian pop-punk-loving quartet of tousle-haired hunks (whose members don't consider themselves a boy band) will make its debut Sunday on MTV's over-the-top annual celebration. Boy bands have a long history of VMAs hysteria and much-hyped appearances (think 'N Sync and its 2013 reunion rumors). 5SOS rides the release of a hit album and an opening gig on One Direction's stadium tour into its appearance at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

Bobby Brown's Night Out After Whitney's Funeral: Performing & Gambling

Originally posted 02/19/2012 10:15AM

Saturday was an exceptionally long day for Bobby Brown.

The singer appeared at his ex-wife Whitney Houston's funeral for a short time early in the day. Later, he took a private jet from New Jersey to Connecticut to perform at the Mohegan Sun casino's arena with his longtime, on-and-off band New Edition, according to a rep for the casino.

The show – which lasted more than an hour and included hits such as "Candy Girl," "Mr. Telephone Man," "Tenderoni" and "My Prerogative" – featured some emotional moments for Brown.

The show went on for Bobby Brown Saturday night, but Whitney Houston's ex husband cried onstage and had to stop several times to compose himself in a heartfelt performance at Landers Center in Southaven, Miss.

"First of all, I want to tell you that I love you all. Second, I would like to say, I love you, Whitney. The hardest thing for me to do is to come on this stage," Brown said while performing a show with New Edition hours after her tragic death.

And even though Brown, 43, was overcome with emotion, the jam-packed audience supported him throughout the night.

New Edition Reuniting at Essence Music Festival

Originally posted 06/29/2011 01:50PM

After 30 years of albums, turmoil and solo projects, New Edition is finally reuniting July 3 at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans.

The last time all six members of the group stood harmoniously onstage was in 1996 for the release of their album Home Again.

The group has tried to reunite several times in the past, but conflict and erratic behavior by notorious singer Bobby Brown has hindered a successful comeback. Yet, Brown insists the past is behind the group. "We're just working on us and our friendship," he tells PEOPLE.

New Kids on the Block & New Edition Record Together

Originally posted 07/01/2008 09:00AM

Just when you thought the New Kids on the Block reunion couldn't get any sweeter, word comes that the guys are recording a song with another favorite boy band: New Edition.

"Donnie Wahlberg had this idea for a few months, since New Kids had the idea of getting back together really," says producer RedOne, who worked on the song. "Donnie's been looking for that one track for all of them and I think we found it."

Last week, just days after New Edition took home the Golden Note Award at the 21st annual ASCAP Rhythm & Soul awards in Beverly Hills, the group (minus Bobby Brown) went into an L.A. studio to record with the New Kids. The ensemble track, titled "Full Service," will appear on NKOTB's not-yet-titled upcoming album.
