B*witched Kicks-Off Tour With 'N Sync, Teams Up With 5ive For TV

Even though the Irish teen quartet of B*witched isn't set to release its debut album in the U.S. until February, the group is already drawing a buzz after scoring no less than three number one singles in Britain.

In Minneapolis last night, the all-girl group comprised of twin sisters Edele Lynch and Keavy Lynch, Sinead O'Caroll and Linsay Armaou kicked off a three-week opening slot for America's newest boyband phenom, 'N Sync. B*witched (who unlike some simular groups, actually play their own instruments) will also team-up with yet another boyband, Five, to tape an upcoming show for Disney Channel's "In Concert" television series, tentatively set to air on March 27, 1999.

As we previously reported (see "Boyzone, B*Witched, Billie And 5ive Hailed, Amid All Saints Split Rumors"), B*witched were recently named Best Newcomers at the awards handed out by the U.K magazine "Smash Hits," and are being widely touted as the successors to the

Spice Girls' pop crown.
