Who knows if this one is truth or rumour just yet but this site Beat Crave is reporting the joint performance.
THIS STORY I AM MARKING AS FALSE!!!All current tweens and tweens of the past who are fans of magazines such as Teen Beat or Tiger Beat will be bouncing off the walls once they hear this. Katy Perry, one of the most annoying but biggest pop stars of today, will be joining mega-boy bands of the past, NKOTB (New Kids On The Block) andBackstreet Boys, on stage as part of a performance for the American Music Awards.Whether this makes you want to watch the AMAs more or less, it’s happening and it will probably be ridiculously hilarious. Details after the jump!According to ThirdAge.com, Orly Adelson, president of Dick Clark Productions, made the announcement on Monday and he’s very excited about it because, apparently, he said the following statement: “New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys on one stage is something special. Moments like these are what the AMAs are all about.”Well, come time for the AMAs or The Grammys, not many of us seem to care anymore. It’s all about marketing these days rather than the talent. Although NOKTB’s “Hangin’ Tough” is definitely a guilty pleasure for a lot of people, these two boy bands of the past were all about hype and teenage girls rather than their ability to put on a credible musical performance. What are we going to do though? We have acts such as Britney Spears who “never claimed to be a singer” but she sure is labeled quite the “entertainer.”Both boy bands are getting ready to go on a Summer 2011 tour and are hoping that this national televised gig will boost their ticket sales when it’s time to hit the road. This will also be the first time both boy bands will perform on the same stage together. Throw in some Katy Perry wearing a blue wig and a sequined bra in the midst of middle-aged has-been men and we assume (but are sad it’s come to this) the award show’s ratings will also see an increase.
The original article from which this story came said that Katy Perry would be sharing the stage with New kids On the Block and Backstreet Boys but in no way indicated it would be at the same time.
Katy Perry is one of the major acts expected to hit the stage at the 2010 American Music Awards show in Los Angeles - and yesterday - we learned that New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys are also booked to perform.
