Female ex-teenyboppers of a certain age were gathered excitedly around the entrance of the Cafe de Paris club in London's Leicester Square at lunchtime today (Feb. 23), hoping to catch a glimpse of Donny Osmond, who was inside giving a showcase performance for a media audience.

The former teen heartthrob was in town to promote his album of Broadway hits and standards, "This Is The Moment," which is due for U.K. release on April 9 on Decca. Produced by Phil Ramone, the album will be accompanied by a limited edition, six-track bonus disc featuring newly-recorded, acoustic-leaning versions of his 1970s solo hits such as "Puppy Love," "Too Young," "The Twelfth Of Never," and "Young Love." The set debuted at No. 64 on The Billboard 200 last week.

Osmond reminisced fondly on stage about touring in the U.K. at the height of "Osmondmania." During a short, well-received set, he created a tangible buzz among the crowd with a reprise of "Puppy Love," which topped the British charts for five weeks in the summer of 1972. However, he stopped short of fulfilling an enthusiastic audience request for the Osmonds" "Crazy Horses.""
