‘A Very Boy Band Holiday’ to Feature Stars from *NSYNC, NKOTB, and More
There’s another exciting holiday special coming our way soon, and this one’s called A Very Boy Band Holiday. The upcoming ABC event will feature stars from iconic boy bands such as *NSYNC, New Kids on the Block, 98 Degrees, and more.
‘A Very Boy Band Holiday’ to Feature Some of Our Favorite Stars
Three members of *NSYNC — Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, and Lance Bass — will appear on A Very Boy Band Holiday, as well as Boyz II Men’s Wanya Morris and Shawn Stockman. Bobby Brown and Michael Bivins will be there to represent New Edition, as well as NKOTB’s Joey McIntyre, and O-Town’s Erik-Michael Estrada.
And 98 Degrees fans are in for a treat, as all four members of the iconic ’90s boy band will be present during the special. That includes Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Jeff Timmons, and Justin Jeffre. The Lacheys are no strangers to talent shows, as they both competed on Dancing with the Stars (Drew won his season), and Lachey won last season of The Masked Singer.
The men will revisit holiday favorites, as well as a new original song titled “A Very Boy Band Holiday,” performed by Joey Fatone and Wanya Morris. Joey McIntyre and his son Griffin will be singing “This One’s For The Children.” And *NSYNC fans can rest easy knowing there will also be a performance of “Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays.”
When Does the Holiday Special Premiere?
A Very Boy Band Holiday will premiere on ABC Monday, December 6, at 8 pm ET. It will last for an hour, and can be viewed on demand and on Hulu the next day if you miss the original broadcast or just want to relive the holiday magic.
It’s not the only holiday special that music fans can look forward to this year. Next Monday, November 29, ABC will air CMA Country Christmas, co-hosted by American Idol‘s Gabby Barrett. Kelly Clarkson is also hosting her own Christmas special on NBC December 1. And don’t forget Mariah Carey’s AppleTV+ special.
Then there’s The Masked Singer‘s sing-along special, airing on FOX December 22. I Can See Your Voice is also airing a holiday special on December 14 ahead of Season 2. After that, it’s all about New Year’s Eve, with Ken Jeong and Joel McHale returning on FOX, opposite Bobby Bones on CBS and Ryan Seacrest on ABC.
