The two groups got together and performed NE’s hit “Is This the End,” before New Edition segued into “Can You Stand the Rain.”

The two groups ended their first ever battle with hugs and kisses while the crowd cheered.

“It’s a brotherhood from Boston,” New Kids’ Donnie Wahlberg told The Boston Globe. “That’s how we see it.”

Afterwards, the super groups didn’t confirm rumors that they are going out tour together.
