*NSYNC, that isn’t a band name I thought I’d be writing about anytime soon but when it comes to the MTV VMAs then I’m interested. If you’re old enough you’ll remember *NSYNC from the mid 1990’s.
If you’re not old enough, well you know Justin Timberlake? He’s still around, he was a member of *NSYNC and boy do we have some photos from the old days for you to see shortly.
*NSYNC were an American boy band first formed in 1995. They were Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and yes, Justin Timberlake.
The band actually lasted into 2002 before they went on a “temporary hiatus” but nothing ever surfaced again from the five piece and in 2007 Lance Bass announced the boy band were done.
This weekend however could see the boy band reunite at the MTV VMAs tomorrow night (Sunday 25th August). Rumours had been circulating but it seems that one of the parents has let it slip bringing truth to the rumours.
Joey Fatone’s dad, speaking to RadarOnline confirmed that the boy band, who had famous hits ‘Bye Bye Bye’ and ‘I Want You Back’ are scheduled to perform at the MTV VMAs this weekend.
According to Joseph Fatone Sr (Joey Fatone’s dad) the performance will be in part to celebrate Justin Timberlake being presented with a special Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Fatone revealed whilst speaking to RadarOnline: “They’re doing a performance. I think it’s exciting.”
“I couldn’t even say why he’s doing it though. Why, at this point in his life. Now he’s his own man.
“But it’s more to the fact that MTV has made them all somewhat of stars, and also made Justin a star.”
“I don’t even know what has gone into this performance… I plead the fifth. I would suggest that you tell all your readers and everyone on the Internet, all your social media, tell them to watch!”
While we doubt this will be an actual reunion, we’re sure fans across the world will be glued to their TV screens to see the 90’s heart throbs perform even if for one last night.
This years MTV VMAs take place tomorrow night in Brooklyn New York with performances from Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and many more.
