MTV had their annual Video Music Awards on the evening of Sunday, Aug. 25, 2013, and it was a night to behold. 'NSYNC reunited for one night as Justin Timberlake accepted a big-time award, and Miley Cyrus frightened almost everyone around the world. Here is the full list of winners for the 2013 MTV VMAs, so stop reading now if you haven't watched the show yet.
As the show began, there had been rumors swirling for weeks that 'NSYNC would come back together to perform again, but many passed them off as mere speculation.
Justin Timberlake was introduced by Jimmy Fallon so that he could accept the cherished Video Vanguard Award. Timberlake performed like no other and lit up the entire place as everyone in attendance danced and sang along.
Then, it happened.
The other four members of 'NSYNC came up through the floor and they performed together again for the first time in almost forever. It last only about 90 seconds, but the Internet almost blew up because of it.
Before their performance though, Miley Cyrus performed what is being called "one of the most horrific performances in VMA history." She performed with Robin Thicke, but the focus was on her lack of attire, garish acts, and just overall strange actions.
It was just weird.
