Marsai Martin and her mom getting their lives to New Edition and New Kids on the Block's performance at the American Music Awards was such a pure reaction. The two reminded me of me and my mother, because I definitely couldn't resist dancing in my seat when the legendary boy bands hit the stage on Sunday! Between the iconic choreography, matching outfits, and nostalgic hits, who could stay in their seat during that incredible Battle of Boston?!

For the first time ever, the two famous groups hit the stage together, performing a medley of some of their biggest hits — including "Candy Girl," "Step by Step," "If It Isn't Love," "Please Don't Go Girl," "Can You Stand the Rain," and more. To make the evening even better, both groups announced that they're going on their own separate tours! Even after all these years, it's clear New Edition and New Kids on the Block still have it. Ahead, check out a clip their joint performance at the AMAs.
