The New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys, also known as NKOTBSB, last night performed on "Dancing With the Stars" for a very hyped crowd that included "American Idol" alum Jordin Sparks.

Sparks is actually the mega boyband's opening act on their tour this summer, which stars at the end of May.

NKOTBSB performed twice in last night's Guilty Pleasures episode. They first sang their new single, "Don't Turn out the Lights," and later came out to perform a medley of each of the band's hits "I Want It That Way," and "Step by Step."

The New Kids' Donnie Wahlberg and Joe McIntyre ended the number with a few impressive dance steps, each with a talented female partner.

It was fitting for McIntyre to get out and show his dancing feet, as he was one of the first ever contestants on the American version of "Dancing."

Wahlberg suprised the audience with his on-point dancing and finesse. His partner was the beautiful Peta Murgatroyd. The talented Wahlberg also stars in CBS's "Blue Bloods."

See the groups medley performance and Wahlberg and McIntyre's great footwork.

It's also known that "DWTS" contestant Kirstie Alley and NKOTB's Jon Knight are very good friends. Yesterday Alley tweeted: "Jonny Boy... When I see u today imma bruise your lips kissing u sooo hard ..... hope I don't embarrass u..."

Alley also tweeted this photo of all the New Kids sans Wahlberg.

The actress and her partner, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, were safe last night. It was wrestler Chris Jericho and his partner, Cheryl Burke, who were voted off. Jericho said he hadn't seen his kids in more than four weeks, so he was happy to go home.
