Music Seen: After 25 Years In The Business, Jordan Knight Is Still A Heartthrob [PHOTOS]

Celebrities who emerge as teen idols rarely stay that way. It’s one of the immutable laws of celebrity nature. They get older, their fans get older, and generally, everyone eventually moves on.

That, however, has not been the case for Jordan Knight, who began his run as a heartthrob way back in 1986 and is showing no signs of slowing down. Whether performing as part of the New Kids On The Block, NKOTBSB, or as a solo artist, Jordan Knight remains culturally relevant to this day not just because he’s a handsome devil or because his falsetto instantly causes listeners’ knees to weaken, but because he continues to record songs that resonate with audiences of all ages.

Jordan popped by our offices here in Times Square not too long ago while on a publicity tour for his new solo album, Unfinished. We asked him to be the latest artist to participate in our ongoing Music Seen feature, and he kindly obliged. Enjoy!—Mark Graham

Music Seen: The Civil Wars Plays VH1 In NYC (PHOTOS)

The Civil Wars stopped by our offices a couple of weeks ago for a You Oughta Know Live performance in our lobby, and our co-workers were all struck by the Nashville-based duo’s on-stage chemistry. Not only do John Paul White and Joy Williams lock eyes while singing duets, the two have voices that sound like they were created to harmonize together. This “musical alchemy,” as Joy refers to it, may have helped the pop-folk act top charts on iTunes and Billboard and land an opening spot for Adele, who blogged that they are “the BEST live band i have EVER seen.” VH1 photographer Jen Marigliano spent time with The Civil Wars on their recent trip to NYC, documenting the duo’s style and how the two interact on and off the stage.
