The New Edition offshoot are celebrating the 30th anniversary of their hit album “Poison.”
An legendary Boston R&B group will make that big appearance this end of the week for a live exhibition at the American Music Awards.
Ringer Biv DeVoe, a branch of the Roxbury-reproduced bunch New Edition, will play out a mixture of hits during the AMAs, which will be held Sunday night at The Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles and broadcast live beginning at 8 p.m. on ABC.
Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, and Ronnie DeVoe will play out a couple of Bell Biv DeVoe’s mid ’90s hits, including “Poison” and “Do Me.” The group previously played the AMAs in 1991 soon after their #1 single “B.B.D. (I Thought It Was Me?),” hit the highest point of the Billboard R&B chart.
The triplet took to Facebook to declare the exhibition, which follows the 30th commemoration of their hit collection “Poison.”
“Wassup y’all !!!,” the group wrote. “We are so excited to perform at this year’s American Music Awards to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Poison!”
Other than Bell Biv DeVoe, different artists slated to perform at the AMAs incorporate Bad Bunny with Jhay Cortez, BTS, Dua Lipa, Jennifer Lopez and Maluma, Katy Perry, Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stallion, Nelly, and Shawn Mendes.
