“It’s the very first show we did actually and they made us take the headliner slot. The people, 18,000 strong, were in their seats [shouting] BBD, BBD!” Ronnie DeVoe says. “We went on to smash it for an hour and fifteen minutes and at that moment we felt like we are definitely on.”

Watch the BBD moment in our exclusive clip above.

Meanwhile, Rickey spends precious time with his 92-year-old grandfather, Ernest Smiley, who’s in his final stages of life. While it’s a somber moment for Rickey, he keeps the mood light and Ernest’s spirits are high as they exchange some laughs like the good old times.

“You are my number one grandson,” Ernest says. “If I am his number one grandson, it’s because I bring him that Crown and Coke and that Hennessy,” Rickey jokes.
