“Blue Bloods” star Donnie Wahlberg may have taken fans on a trip back to his old singing days as Danny Reagan sings during the Season 12 premiere.

The former New Kids On The Block star teased Friday’s show, saying his character “may go a little Donnie Wahlberg tonight.” On the show, Regan used a little bit of his singing for some Karaoke fun.

And fans loved it. One fan named Jacci said it made her smile.

The “Blue Bloods” star agreed with her, saying he smiled. He also admitted he did it out of love for his fans. He even threw a shoutout to “his Blockheads!”

The fans showered the 52-year-old actor with praise.

Twitter user and NKOTB fan Jaelynn’s Ddub said, “Danny and karaoke?? all here for it.”

Another Twitter user, Lobsters Donnie, begged him for more, saying, “Oh come on!! We want more!!!! That was awesome!!! I’m still smiling.”

Twitter fan cassandraTT could barely hold back her enjoyment.

“I’m so fricken happy!!!!! Danny went all Donnie!!! @DonnieWahlberg … you’ve made my night!!! Lol!” 

Finally, Twitter user Michelle Kastler jokingly confused the actor with his character, saying, “Yes!!!!!! Get up there Danny! I mean Donnie.” 

Finally, another Twitter user named @Lindz_Jay got Wahlberg to retweet her statement of being unprepared for the “Blue Bloods” star’s karaoke show. 

She said, “Did this just happen!? Is @DonnieWahlberg  giving us a taste of what’s to come!? Monday… Best performance yet Danny Reagan! I was not prepared.” 

Finally, he finished off the conversation, saying, “Hope you all enjoyed the Season 12 Premiere of #BlueBloods! Let’s do it again next week! I may even do some more Karaoke!”

Such A Tease

On Thursday’s episode of “The Talk,” Donnie Wahlberg tried to talk about his “Blue Bloods” series.

The star wanted to keep the conversation off of his New Kids life and more on the show’s Season 12 premiere. But he couldn’t resist.

“There is news. Now, I am going to say that the ‘Blue Bloods’ season premiere is tomorrow. So, I don’t want to step on that by giving too much New Kids information because I’m in Danny Reagan mode right now. But, Monday of next week, we will be announcing a tour for 2022. So, you heard it here first,” Wahlberg said.

And with the karaoke fun, it looks like he’s just warming up.

Wahlberg’s Childhood Photo

During Friday’s show, the “Blue Bloods” star went back even further than his New Kids days. The photos show his growth, but with the same familiar pose that fans know all too well.

In the first, larger photo, there’s a black-and-white photo of himself as a kid. In two more pictures, you see the changes, like the hairline. I was just kidding, Donnie.

One fan notices something in a photo and jumps into his Twitter feed, joking, “Wait, are you supposed to put the evidence in your pocket?”

Wahlberg responded quickly.

It’s “technically” not evidence.,” he said. “It was the young child’s sock that fell off when he was receiving medical treatment. However, nobody saw that part.”
