Reuniting as a 'manband,' Drew Lachey and co. deliver their 1990s hit singles such as 'I Do (Cherish You)', 'The Hardest Thing', 'Invisible Man' and 'Because of You'.
98 Degrees have reunited to deliver a special performance on "Today". The 1990s boyband gave their first show in ten years on the NBC morning show ahead of their scheduled performance at Mixtape Festival in Hershey, Pennsylvania this weekend.
Donning all-black ensembles, Nick Lachey, Justin Jeffre, Jeff Timmons and Drew Lachey presented some of their hit singles in front of a still-screaming crowd in New York on Friday morning, August 17. "It feels like just yesterday we were doing this the first time around," Nick told the fans before delivering "I Do (Cherish You)".
Nick then hinted to Savannah Guthrie that fans could expect a surprise from the group in the near future. "We view this opportunity as a chance to kind of test it out and see if it was still fun, and I think we're all very happy to say we're having a great time," he said. "I think you can expect more from us down the line."
Nick's brother Drew chimed in, "For us, pop music has come back around, and now is the right time in our personal lives and our professional lives to get back together and make another run at it."
When Savannah joked about calling them "boyband" despite the fact that they have "graduated to manband," Nick responded, "I think we have graduated," while Drew added, "Finally!" Jeff, meanwhile, admitted that it felt a bit harder for him to bust some dance moves than he used to, "I used to be steak and lobster but now it's Metamucil and prune juice."
