98 Degrees fans had a chance to re-live the glory days of the late 1990s when the onetime boy band reuninted on the “Today” show.
All four band members — Nick Lachey and his brother Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons, and Justin Jeffre — showed up for the appearance, and as MTV noted all were looking good. Though it’s been 10 years since 98 degrees put out an album, the boy band members didn’t miss a beat as they performed hits like Invisible Man and The Hardest Thing.
The 98 Degrees members performed to hundreds of fans gathered outside of Rockefeller Plaza, wearing black ensembles and performing Motown moves, CELEBUZZ reported.
The appearance was part of 98 Degrees’ semi-return to the music scene. Members hinted that they might get into touring again, and the day after their “Today” appearance were playing at the Summer Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
They also hinted that there might be another album in the works. Nick Lachey told “Today” host Savannah Guthrie that there are some new projects in the future for 98 Degrees.
Lachey’s bandmates dropped some signs of a prolonged reunion as well. In February, Timmons told a news outlet in the Philippines that band members had talked about a 98 Degrees reunion.
“We’ve been talking of 98 Degrees getting back together for a reunion show,” he said. “Nothing’s out of the question but nothing’s solidified. We’ll see.”
98 Degrees came together in 1995 in Los Angeles, with the boy band releasing its debut album two years later. The group scored Top 40 hits with eight singles, including Thank God I Found You and Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche).
