RORY: Trust me, I’ll hate it. It’ll be stuffy and boring, the music will suck and since none of the kids at school like me, I’ll be stuck in the back listening to 98° watching Tristan and Paris argue over which one of them gets to make me miserable first.
98° is an American boy band consisting of Nick and Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre, and Jeff Timmons. Their first album was released in 1997, and their Revelation album was released in September 2000, not long before Rory’s dance. The biggest hit from the album was Give Me Just One Night, which went to #2 and was their biggest success. They have sold over 10 million records globally, and had eight hit singles in the US. The band went on hiatus in 2003, but reunited in 2012 and are still touring and producing albums.
