Hit Me Baby One More Time featured five bands or singers performing their greatest hit as well as a cover to a popular contemporary song. The five groups/singers performing on the premiere were Loverboy, CeCE Peniston, A Flock of Seagulls, Arrested Development, and Tiffany. All were a few years older and many pounds heavier than most probably remember them.
Loverboy sang “Working for the Weekend” and “Hero.” CeCe Peniston sang “Finally” and “There You’ll Be.” A Flock of Seagulls sang “I Ran” and “On the Way Down.” Arrested Development sang “Tennessee” and “Heaven.” Tiffany sang “I Think We’re Alone Now” and “Breakaway.”
Arrested Development was voted as the audience favorite. For winning the competition, Arrested Development was awarded a $20,000 donation to their favorite charity. Arrested Development chose to donate the money to U.N.I.C.E.F.
