Crowd-surfing, stage-humping, ab-flaunting, mid-show selfies, birthday serenades, Christmas in May and even a cameo from another boy band!

Nothing was off-limits as New Kids on the Block celebrated the House of Blues' 25th anniversary with a sold-out, confetti-filled show in Anaheim, California, on Saturday.

Danny Wood kicked off the show by introducing a surprise opening set from O-Town, who ran through their biggest hits, but saved the best for last. "We know there's only one reason we're here," joked Jacob Underwood, before performing the 2001 chart-topper, "All Or Nothing."

But it was NKOTB's entrance to their catchy latest jam, "One More Night," from their new EP Thankful that triggered ear-piercing screams from the jam-packed audience.

Performing the biggest hits from their remarkable 33-year career -- including "Step By Step," "I'll Be Loving You (Forever)," and "Hangin' Tough" -- the quintet also treated fans to other favorites from their early albums, changing into throwback outfits, with Donnie Wahlberg sporting a denim romper.

O-Town returned to the stage to join the band in covering 2Pac's "California Love," and the group even pulled out tracks like "Peace to the World" from their 1989 holiday record Merry, Merry Christmas. "Every day is Christmas in New Kids land," explained Joey McIntyre, 44.

Flashback to the 1990s when most pop music centered around the army of "boy bands" who followed in the cultural wake of New Kids On The Block and New Edition. The string of those groups seemed endless.

The popularity of baby-faced boys who sang and danced was such that it inspired the prime time ABC-TV series, "Making The Band," which took its audience through the process of fabricating a freshly minted pop sensation. The group who literally came to be on camera that first season was O-Town.

The series continued for two more seasons after moving to MTV, and during that time the group landed a couple of Top 10 hits with the songs "Liquid Dreams" and "All or Nothing," while the group's debut album "O-Town," hit the national Top 5 and was pushed to platinum sales as girls screamed and swooned across the globe for them. A second album, "O2," likewise broke the Top 30 Albums chart, though sales were weaker.

O-Town is back with a vengeance!

The four remaining band members told exclusively that they penned a song about their dead former manager, Lou Perlman, called “Shady Business,” laying bare his secrets once and for all.

“We came from a ‘Rewind Con’ convention and it went terrible for us,” Jacob Underwood said of their new hit. “For everybody there, business-wise. So long story — it came from that situation happening right into a writing session. And it was within a couple months of Lou’s passing and everybody kept asking us what we thought and what we think and what it means to us.”

He explained the song is about how they got taken advantage of in their careers, but fans will have to wait until the song is released this summer for the specifics!

As Radar previously reported, Perlman died behind bars from cardiac arrest in August 2016. He was in the middle of a 25-year-sentence for running a $300 million Ponzi scheme.

Although he managed the group (originally consisting of Underwood, Erik-Michael Estrada, Trevor Penick, Dan Miller and Ashley Parker Angel) from 2000 to 2003, it is not known how much money — if any — that he took from them. Members of the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC have slammed him in the past for shady business practices.

As for Angel, he’s not with the group this time around.

Penick revealed to Radar that the men recently ran into Angel at the same Rewind Con, but they have not spoken since.

The men agreed that they don’t miss having Angel in the band since he’s “not in our life anymore.”

“It would be weirder to have him than it is to have him out now,” Penick added.

“I don’t remember having a fifth member!” Underwood joked.

In July 2001, just as the "boy band renaissance" of the late '90s and early '00s was quickly winding down and *NSYNC released what would be its final album together, one Making The Band-made band, O-Town, came through and delivered what could be considered a parting shot of the era. Even if debut single "Liquid Dreams" made you skeptical of the reality-show group, there was no denying that the band's second single, "All or Nothing," was immediately a step up. Their biggest hit to date, a power ballad that peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and at No. 1 on the Mainstream Top 40 chart, is now one of the most iconic modern boy band singles.

Sixteen years later, four of the five original O-Town members continue to make new music as a group, but even still they love paying homage to the song that changed everything for them. As Billboard celebrates the best choruses of the 21st century, we sat down with O-Town (Trevor Penick, Jacob Underwood, Dan Miller and Erik-Michael Estrada) to discuss the history of "All or Nothing," and what made its chorus so memorable.

16. O-Town, "All or Nothing"

If there's one great kind of chorus the 21st century is largely lacking in, it's the planet-sized power ballad with a refrain so sweeping and high-stakes that you have to raise an entire blowtorch to it; the kind of chorus you need to craft an entire summer blockbuster around just to have the appropriately dramatic moment for it to soundtrack. Well, O-Town's "All or Nothing" didn't get the hit movie -- Pearl Harbor was already taken, sadly -- but it certainly got the rest, with a chorus that peak Bon Jovi or Bryan Adams would've traded years off their life for, and a climactic key change that took the song higher than Scott Stapp could ever have dreamed. -- A.U.
