Sunday night’s “98 Degrees at Christmas” show at the Kravis Center was an old-fashioned feel-good holiday sing-along, right down to the gleefully cheesy reindeer and Santa sweaters, albeit a holiday sing-along where a boy band concert broke out in the middle.
And that seemed cool with fans, themselves encased in every manner of sequin and shiny thing, to hear Cincinnati’s own ’90s vocal stars break out songs from their two Christmas albums (“The Christmas Song,” “If Every Day Could Be Christmas”), their greatest pop hits, and the best of “Frozen,” because there’s a snowman involved, OK? Here are the nine most festive features of 98 Degrees’ appearance:
1) Before the boy band bounty began, concertgoers were treated to an adorable show by the talented and well-dressed second through fourth-grade members of the Rosarian Academy Show Choir, who sang and swayed their way through several holiday classics. Did you know that the “pumpkin pie” line in “Sleigh Ride” has its own choreography and fancy arm movements? Consider yourself schooled.
