So embarrassing. Seriously cringey.

Doing choreographed dance moves that belong in the 90s and a song that obviously was meant for a High School Musical soundtrack. Most of them looked half arsed like they didn't want to be there. Awkward as

I know someone over the age of 25 who loves them.

I watched the reunion program on Sky purely for nostalgic reasons. They were naff in the 90s and are even more so now.

Take That have been the only successful comeback and unfortunately every group from the 90s have decided to give it a go. Leave the past in the past, I say.

Even as a kid I never liked them. I did like Say You'll Be Mine/Better The Devil You Know though Only halfway tolerable song of theirs. They belong in the 90s along with Tony Blair being in power, Windows 3.1/95/98 (anyone remember using those?), bad fashions, AOL, bondi blue iMacs, Furby and other 90s stuff

They really are awful and it makes you wonder who listened to them then and even more worryingly, now.

Take That sold around 2 million more copies of their album than Steps greatest hits. In the UK alone.

Why? Did you prefer 90s technology/music to what we have now?

One of the nightclubs that my friends and I often go to have a certain fondness for Steps. I know some places are big on cheesy music but it takes the mick. I remember as a kid I thought they were lame and I still think that now!

I saw the performance and I actually thought it was ok.

Yeah the dance moves were slightly cheesy but that's what Steps are all about.

They were never taken seriously and they never will be - and they know that.

I personally thought that their vocals were pretty decent too. You can't knock them for singing live and having a go and they all did that. So hats off for that.

Song isn't great - but as I say they were ok! My opinion of course.

Steps were my favourite band as a child and were my first ever concert but I really wish they'd not come back. It's kind of ruined all my good memories of them. They just don't work in this day and age.

Plus I thought that they all came accross horribly in that documentary series they did.

I don't think I'd want to use Windows 3.1/95/98 and dial up again Wouldn't mind going back to the late 90s/early 00s though, when Apple was still a computer company rather than a company focusing on overpriced iToys. I loved those lampshade iMacs! There was some good music around in the 90s if you looked past the cheesy pop. I think the early 00s were better for pop music though.

Early 00s music was just basically the same as the 90s which is not a bad thing, much better than a lot of the stuff out nowadays though!

Claire has seriously blown-up again.

one of her legs is the width of Faye!

Song is diabolical. But the interview is cute, nostalgic. But with a big whiff of desperation.

I like the song. It is meant to be a christmas song anyway.

I do love their trailer promoting the album! XD Is the trailer out on TV now? Or when the album comes out?
