It’s like 1994 all over again! The New (well, old) Kids on the Block graced the stage of The Today Show this morning. Fans were said to have camped out since Wednesday, hoping to snag a glimpse of the sad New Kid, or the shy New Kid or maybe the bad boy New Kid. Or maybe even the kids or grandkids of the New Kids!Click here to watch a video clip of the performance.

Even at 8 a.m. in the pouring rain, shrieking fans – some of whom camped out since Wednesday – packed the Today Show courtyard to see the reunited group hit the stage for the first time since 1994.

The turnout of over 3,000 strong was one of the biggest in the history of the Today show’s concert series.

The band sang a medley of their hits, like “Step by Step” and “Hangin’ Tough” before launching into their new single, “Summertime”.
