Making for the most-hyped performance of the evening, the Backstreet Boys and New Kids On the Block took the stage together at the 2010 American Music Awards in Los Angeles, CA on Sunday night (November 21).

With the show taking place at Nokia Theatre LA Live, A.J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Brian Littrell, Nick Carter, Jordan and Jonathan Knight, Joey McIntyre, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny Wood all joined up for their very first collaborative live stage effort.

The AMA gig comes as the Backstreet Boys and New Kids On the Block gear up to set out on a 2011 tour.

Talking about the plans, Nick Carter told MTV News, "It's great. It really is. It's amazing."

Meanwhile, Donnie Wahlberg added, "The beauty of this show is they can expect Backstreet Boys to sing their hits. They can expect us to sing our hits [and then] the surprises. I can't wait. I cant wait."
