    98 Degrees began promoting themselves by going to talent shows and auditions. It wasn't until they met Montell Jordan's manager backstage at a Boys II Men concert that their luck would change. They signed to Motown Records and six months later in 1997 they released their first album 98 Degrees. Invisible Man was their first hit and the song made people take notice. The next year 98 Degrees released their second album 98 Degrees and Rising. In 2000, 98 Degrees released their 3rd album Revelation.

Drew Lachey finally married his high school sweetie Lea Dellecave who he's known since grade 5. Nick Lachey married pop diva Jessica Simpson.
