During a stop in Corpus Christi on Monday night, '80s stars New Kids on the Block likely made the 30- and 40-something crowd fall that much more in love with them.

The boyband performed a tribute to late Tejano queen Selena during their show. In between hit singles — and with loud fangirl screams in the background — the group included a dance break to the singer's iconic track "Bidi Bidi Bom Bom." They even brought a lucky fan on stage.
After the show, group member Donnie Wahlberg shared a photo on Instagram featuring Selena's sister Suzette Quintanilla. In the post, Wahlberg said he was "humbled" the moment he realized Quintanilla was in the audience during his tribute to "an angel."
The '80s heartthrobs will stop by the AT&T Center on Thursday. Maybe the Alamo City will be blessed with a Selena tribute, too.
