The iconic R&B trio — including New Edition alum Ricky Bell, 53, and Michael Bivins and Ronnie DeVoe, both 52 — reunited to rock the stage during the awards show with a nostalgic performance of their '90s hits "Poison" and "Do Me."

Dressed in matching velvet suit jackets and black hats and pants, the group performed in front of basketball-themed set pieces and lockers as DJ Shakim played the music behind them. Kicking it off with "Do Me," the trio showed off clean choreography while belting the old-school track. The cameras kept cutting to AMAs host Taraji P. Henson rocking out in the audience.

Then the music transitioned to "Poison" as the group was joined onstage by two masked dancers wearing black sweatsuits with the word "Poison" written in big, sparkly red letters. The two female dancers leveled up the choreography as Bell Biv DeVoe focused more on the song's intricate harmonies.

Bell Biv DeVoe are three-time AMA winners themselves. They made their AMAs performance debut back in 1991 when the trio performed their No. 1 hit single "B.B.D. (I Thought It Was Me?)."
