The New Kids On The Block New Year’s Eve performance was very rainy & Twitter thought it was hilarious

Times Square turned into a block party for its NYE festivities. ’80s boy band New Kids on the Block performed at ABC’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest, which took place Monday, January 31. The Kids performed a medley of their hit songs, including "Step By Step," and while audiences were excited to see the boy band reunite, many fans were concerned about the rain, which has been pouring down all afternoon. Twitter drew attention to at least one camera lens, which was so covered in raindrops that it was difficult for audiences to see the band’s performance.

The program’s host, Ryan Seacrest, commented several times on the torrential rain — a welcome change from last year’s frigid temperatures. Nevertheless, the American Idol personality, co-host Jenny McCarthy, and Times Square audience looked soaked and miserable. Fortunately for them, they didn’t have to dance in this weather (except Seacrest, who did try to floss later in the program).

However, it wasn’t just the raindrop-covered camera that audiences were concerned about. Part of the five men’s performance involved dancing on the slippery steps in Times Square, and may people were naturally concerned that they would fall (thankfully, they didn’t).

The boy band — which is made up of Donnie Wahlberg (Jenny McCarthy’s husband), Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, and Danny Wood — performed well despite the slick surfaces, and nary a new kid fell off the block (so to speak).

However, New Kids on the Block haven’t been the only ones to perform live in Times Square — musicians like Bastille and Dan + Shay also braved the precipitation.

More to come…
