The battle of the boy bands continues!
98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey was asked to pick the worst pop group of the '90s during a Monday appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. The musician—who appeared sans bandmates Justin Jeffre, Drew Lachey and Jeff Timmons—didn't shade more successful acts like New Kids on the Block, Boys II Men, Backstreet Boys or 'N Sync. Instead, he chose a more obscure British quintet: 5ive.
To be fair, it was host Andy Cohen who first suggested 5ive was the bottom of the barrel. "It's so funny you call them out, said Lachey," who hosts Vh1's Morning Buzz. "That's exactly who I was gonna say."
According to the 40-year-old ""I Do (Cherish You)" singer, "We had a big time beef with those guys."
"We were on the Smash Hits tour in the U.K. with a bunch of pop groups at the time, and 5ive for whatever reason just had it out for us," he said of the 1998 shows. "So we used to battle every night."
