98 Degrees is heating up Christmas for their December run of shows this year. The iconic group, consisting of Nick LacheyDrew LacheyJustin Jeffre, and Jeff Timmons, formed in 1996 and is still going strong this holiday season. 

When it's 98 Degrees at Christmas, RADIO.COM just couldn't resist seeing the guys down in Atlantic City, New Jersey. With all four of the group members dressed in plaid, the room lit up with snowflakes as they made their way down to the stage in typical boy-band fashion. 

"We hope you let it all go tonight, and I'll guarantee you'll be saying 'ho ho ho' out the door when you leave tonight," Drew told the crowd. 

98 Degrees was accompanied by three musicians throughout the two-hour set, adding to their signature sound at Boragta's The Music Box. The Lachey brothers went on to share their holiday plans and filled the sold-out room in on the bickering that occurs at the family dinner table. 

The GRAMMY-nominated group made their show fun and unique with everything from Christmas tunes to original hits, even acting out scenes from The Grinch and Alvin and the Chipmunks. 98 Degrees has released two Christmas albums to date including This Christmas (1999) and Let It Snow (2017).

During the December 14 show, 98 Degrees also gifted fans with the ultimate Christmas present: a live performance of the first song they ever recorded and No. 1 hit, "Invisible Man." In addition, our eyes and ears were blessed with a performance of "I Do (Cherish You)," "This Gift," and "True To Your Heart."

What would a holiday show be without adding a special touch to what is one of the most influential songs ever? 98 Degrees honored the Lambily with a performance of Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" with Nick on lead vocals. 

The encore of the evening consisted of tracks "The Hardest Thing" and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." 98 Degrees received a standing ovation as Nick, Drew, Justin, and Jeff bowed to the crowd filled with bachelorette parties, birthday celebrations, and best friends, among others.
