These were the rock stars whose posters covered our bedroom walls and whose concerts became the highlights of our lives. The audience was filled with fluttering hearts who were eagerly awaiting to welcome Oprah"s multiple teen heartthrob guests who made the ladies scream again as they stepped on the stage to share a bit about their lives before performing some of their greatest hits.
The most memorable highlight of the episode was when Jackie Jackson, the oldest brother in the Jackson 5, surprised Oprah on the sets of her show with flowers in one hand and an invitation to a lunch date for two. Oprah, who had been crushing on JJ since the age of 13, could not believe her eyes and ears and was stunned momentarily. They chatted over a hearty lunch that lasted for two hours and Oprah asked Jackie some intriguing questions as well as confessed her love for him.
The next teen heartthrob to hit the stage was one who left women screaming for his attention wherever he went. Shaun Cassidy, who is now a family guy, performed some of his best songs in front of the audience after almost 30 long years and even spent a moment with a die-hard fan, Gina.
Whether burning up Billboard charts, topping video countdowns or driving stadiums of fans to tears, the Backstreet Boys have always been larger than life. And when they walked on to the stage, the crowd went crazy! Not only the Boy gang sing for Oprah and her audience, they also met Noelle and Meghan, who claimed that they were the biggest Backstreet Boys" fans on earth.
Peter Frampton, the hottest rock star of the 70s, with his long flowing hair, unbuttoned shirt is till date, one of the best guitar players ever. As a surprise Oprah had the famous guitarist sing two of his biggest hits for the audience - "Show Me the Way" and "Baby I Love Your Way."
