Boy Bands have been all the rage for decades. And now, some of the biggest names are coming together for the greatest holiday special known to man, A Very Boy Band Holiday! The announcement comes via In a video on Instagram passing the phone to their favorite boy band members.

Set to air on December 6th, the stage will be brought to life by Wanya Morris & Shawn Stockman (Boyz II Men), Joey Fatone & Lance Bass (*NSync), NKOTB’s Joey McIntyre, all 4 members of 98 degrees, and Erik Michael Estrada from O-town.
