The 90s had a lot of amazing music and a lot of fantastic sitcoms. There was just such a distinctive style to them that will always give you a warm nostalgic feeling. We also spent a lot of time revisiting the classics, learning all about the music our parents grew up with.
Whether you were listening to the best songs, or watching your favorite TV shows the 90s were absolutely fantastic. There were so many great things about the 90s, and the fact that pop stars were constantly appearing on our favorite shows really helped elevate it to the next level.
Singers would often get invited onto shows to guest star for an episode, usually conveniently timed around an album release or tour schedule. A lot of stars who were just starting to get popular went on, as well as a bunch of classic legends that people absolutely LOVED.
It was beneficial for everyone involved. The singer/group would get to have their little spotlight on the show, usually singing one of their songs, and the show would get a huge name to come in and draw attention. Everyone wins!
How many of these guest spots do you remember?
1. Boyz II Men - Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Will manages to get Boyz II Men to perform at his cousin's christening even though he is essentially harassing them in the recording studio.
2. The Monkees - Boy Meets World
Hey hey, they're the monkees! Who doesn't want to be joined on stage by this fantastic band from the 60s? A new generation of kids got to hear their classic songs and learn just how awesome they are.
3. Bette Middler - Seinfeld
Bette Middler is not only a pop legend, but she is a comedic genius as well. Her ability to play off Krammer just proves how perfect she really is.
4. Tom Jones - Fresh Prince of Bel-Air
Who else would play Carlton's guardian angel other than Tom Jones? There is literally no one else that could have played this role! They get to sing a duet, he shows Carlton how he has influenced his family and helps him get back on track. So great!
5. Cher - Will & Grace
Now, technically this aired in 2000, but it's too good to leave out! Cher visited Jack which you would think would be his dream, but instead he just doesn't believe it's her.
