Grease: Live is just mere weeks away. Who’s excited? It’s either going to be really fantastic or a huge trainwreck. Either way, it won’t be boring.

While the majority of the cast has been locked down for months now, one small role had yet to be cast- Teen Angel. Remember when Frankie Avalon serenaded Frenchy with “Beauty School Dropout” during the dream scenario in the original musical? One of the most iconic moments for sure. Find out below, who’s been tapped to recreate that memorable moment.

Along with crafting hits for himself, Babyface has produced smashes for the likes of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Toni Braxton, Brandy, Celine Dion, Paula Abdul, Pink and Ariana Grande to name a few. The 56-year-old entertainer was arguably one of the most successful producers during the 90s.

During the 2015 Soul Train Awards, Babyface received the Legend Award which was presented by longtime friend and collaborator L.A. Reid. On stage to sing some of his songs were Boyz II Men, Fantasia, Brandy, Bobby Brown and Tevin Campbell. Babyface even got in on the action as well, singing one of his hits.

No disrespect to the others, but IMHO Fantasia stole the show with her segment. The American Idol Season 3 winner took everyone to church with her rendition of “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” by Whitney Houston and “Superwoman” by Karyn White. Girl absolutely slayed. They don’t make Idol winners like her anymore. Check out the musical tribute below.

If you’re on the fence about forking over the cash to watch The Package Tour, watching these videos might push you over the edge. I know I’m tempted. I love a good old school boy band tune.

New Kids on The Block, 98 Degrees and Boyz II Men appeared on The Today Show Friday, May 31 to promote their joint tour which kicked off in Connecticut the other day. Each of them took to the stage to perform their iconic hits. I wish the others would’ve followed NKOTB’s lead and performed a medley like them. Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight and Joey McIntyre, belted out their hits “Step by Step” and “You Got the Right Stuff.”

Meanwhile Nick Lachey, Justin Jeffre, Jeff Timmons and Drew Lachey serenaded the crowd with “The Hardest Thing.” Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman, and Wanya Morris kicked it old school with “Motownphilly.” Check out the performances below and let me know which one is your favorite.

This morning, New Kids On The Block, 98 Degrees, and Boyz II Men all appeared on The View to make a big announcement: They are all going on a North American tour together this summer in what has been titled, “The Package Tour“. I’m not sure if that’s a sexual innuendo or just simply the fact you get three boybands in one concert. Probably both.

Earlier in the morning, Donnie Wahlberg from NKOTB had chatted with Ryan Seacrest to share the news, saying, “We’ll have plenty of surprises! With all those egos in one building at the same time! You know there’s going to be a lot of crazy and fun stuff going on. We’re gonna pull out a lot of surprises every night.”

The tour begins on May 31 in Connecticut and they have so far scheduled two dozen shows. This coming Friday, NKOTB will be premiering their single, “Remix (I Like The)” from their upcoming 10 album that comes out in April. This tour will be the first time 98 Degrees has been on the road in twelve years. As for The Backstreet Boys & N’Sync… Um, well Justin Timberlake is back on the music scene – that’s something! Find out what cities the boys are going to and when in the list below.

Old Navy has just released a new Christmas commercial with the help of some familiar faces that you could call “the gift of Christmas past”…. Jordan Knight from New Kids On The Block and Boyz II Men. Holiday icon, Johnny Mathis tells a “classic-ier” version of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, calling it Twas The Jordan Knight Before Christmas. LOL.

In the commercial, a family is at home on the night before Christmas looking all bummed out. Just then, the fireplace swivels around and Jordan Knight appears and breaks into song, with two female elves as backup dancers. Jordan then gives them gifts from Old Navy, and like magic, they don’t even have to open the presents – they just all of a sudden are wearing their new clothes. Next comes my favorite part of the whole commercial, when Three Wise Boyz II Men show up at the door singing a modified version of one of their hits.

With tomorrow being December 1, it’s pretty much time to start getting into the holiday spirit and this cute video is a “Step by Step” in that direction. Enjoy and Happy Friday!

Given that Jersey Shore still garners ratings most basic cable shows would die for, I was expecting a bit of an uproar when MTV announced the sixth season would be the last. Seems even die-hard fans realize that it was time to bid adieu to the overly-tanned bunch. Personally, I haven’t watched the show since the third season, but will probably tune in to see how it all ends.

The last chapter of Jersey Shore begins on Thursday, October 4 at 10pm. MTV began promoting it during last night’s MTV VMAs by debuting two videos. The first is a montage of the cast exhibiting their signature drunken antics while Boyz II Men’s “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday” plays in the background. Last call indeed. It’s kinda hilarious to see them fall and stumble in slow motion while the ballad plays.

The second video is a superteaser for the upcoming final season. The Situation is back after a stint at rehab and his castmates ironically cheers him 😉 Snooki is preggers and doesn’t think living in the house is wise. Deena is arrested for public drunkenness and declares “arresting is not fun“. A baby shower and what looks to be a bachelorette party takes place. And lastly, the Shore house looks like it might burn down in flames. Watch both videos below.

‘Tis the season for Christmas albums and Justin Bieber sure knows how to sell them. His holiday album Under the Mistletoe peaked at #1 on three album charts in all three countries in North America. Talk about international outreach. The lead-off single Mistletoe has received a lot of airplay but has failed to really chart well as a stand-alone track. Here’s hoping that his collaboration with Boyz II Men can help him climb some R&B charts leading up to December 25.

In the track titled Fa La La, the song really shows off Justin’s newly changed voice in a nice vocal blend with the trio that is Boyz II Men. The track was penned by Adonis Shropshire, Bernard Harvey and the Biebs himself. I personally like this track better than Mistletoe and I think that it has more of a long-lasting Christmas feel that could become one of those classics like the ones we listen to on replay from Britney Spears and Mariah Carey.

The video itself is pretty laid-back and stripped down. All in black and white, Justin along with the boys sing out the track with minimal effects or visuals. It’s a nice change for Justin to allow us to really enjoy the song and hear just how much his voice has changed. If you really like this track, you should go get the a cappella version on iTunes. Those harmonies they hit are ridiculous. Check out the Fa La La video below.

Last night, the stars took to the ballroom for a night of spooktacular routines. Nothing like Dancing With the Stars going full out to celebrate Halloween. After individual routines and two team dancers, Ricki Lake found herself once again topping the leader board while Nancy Grace fell to the bottom. Would this be the end of the courtroom queen? We’ll have to wait and see. But first, the evening is kicked off with a performance from YouTube’s highest watched superstar, Justin Bieber who performs the title track from his 3D documentary, Never Say Never (video after the jump).

After an encore performance from Team Paso (Rob & Cheryl, Ricki & Derek and Hope & Maks), we receive our first set of results. It’s between Nancy Grace and reality royalty, Rob Kardashian. The judges told Rob that this was his best dance of the season but Len audibly stated that it wasn’t Nancy’s greatest moment. With Nancy being the base of the leaderboard, would this be her demise to the bottom two? It would and Rob and Cheryl are safe to dance another week.

After an AT&T inspirational performance, Derek Hough and SYTYCD alumni, Allison Holker take the stage for a flamenco inspired routine. I can’t complain, any routine that involves Derek shirtless is okay in my books. Accompanied by violins, a classical guitarist and an amazing drummer, the two gave a jaw dropping performance. Back to results. J.R. Martinez has been fighting for top spot with Ricki Lake week after week but last night, fell into the middle of the pack with Ricki regaining the lead. Ricki and Derek are safe and so are J.R. and Karina. Shocker! So, will it be Hope Solo or David Arquette joining Nancy in the bottom. Find out below.
