    Donnie, Joey, Jordan, Jonathan, and Danny have reunited after nearly a
decade and a half as New Kids On The Block. Back in the late 80s and early
90s, the New Kids established what the modern boy band would sound and look
like, and became a phenomenon, selling over 70 million albums. Their current
single "Summertime" has hit the charts and their upcoming album of the same
name is to be released this fall. Their concert tour, selling out venues in
minutes across North America, kicks off in Toronto on September 19. But first,
the New Kids are set to reconnect with their millions of fans on the MMVAs
stage.
    New Kids On The Block join previously announced performers including
Rihanna, Hedley, Girlicious, Simple Plan, Kardinal Offishall Featuring Akon,
Flo Rida, illScarlett, Sean Kingston, and JabbaWockeeZ.
    Two-time MMVAs nominees Bedouin Soundclash take to the MMVAs Aftermath
