Backstreet Boys & NKOTB Perform at AMAs (VIDEO)

The Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block ushered in the return of the boy bands with an epic joint performance on Sunday night’s American Music Awards.

The two groups shared the stage with mash-ups of their biggest hits to prepare rabid NKOTB and BSB fans for their sure-to-be-dreamy joint tour together next summer.

The two bands performed a medley of NKOTB’s “Step by Step” and “You’ve Got It (The Right Stuff)” with BSB’s “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back),” “I Want It That Way” and “Larger Than Life.”
