Miguel, LL Cool J, EnVogue & More to Perform Live on ABC Mini Series 'Greatest Hits'
If you've been missing hearing those classic singles that take you back down memory lane from artists like LL Cool J, EnVogue and Boyz II Men, then ABC had you in mind when developing their new music miniseries Greatest Hits. The network is bringing together some of the top artists from the 80s, 90s and present day to perform their hits live during the new show starting in June.
According to Billboard, ABC is readying something big for the Summer for music fans, and on Thursday, June 30, at 9 p.m., viewers across the world will get to tune in to the network to watch it all take place. Greatest Hits will showcase exactly what the name says, some of the greatest hits from artists like Miguel, Andra Day, Jason DeRulo, and John Legend. But these are just a few present day names out of the many who have been chosen, and whose careers date back to the 80s and 90s.
There will also be performances from The Backstreet Boys, Chicago, Coolio, and a host of others. The network has tapped comedian and talk show host veteran Arsenio Hall to host the miniseries alongside Kelsea Ballerini. Viewers should not expect this to be just another music show, at least not according to Hall who tweeted, this is going to be "a Summer Music TV party."
