'NSYNC reunion is a rumor no longer, and is truly the reunion that was seen and heard across the nation this Sunday at the 2013 MTV VMAs, as ‘NSYNC made its big return together on stage to amaze their many listeners. In addition to wowing fans — both celeb stars and the public audience alike — the 90s boy band teamed up as a piece of Justin Timberlake’s latest performance, this time in honor of his win as the recipient of the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award, MTV reports this Sunday, Aug. 25.
An 'NSYNC reunion that has been long awaited by boy band fans is something that indeed came together tonight at the 2013 VMAs, including the entire crew of Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez, and of course, Justin Timberlake. The singers seemed to float up through the floor in a sudden silhouette masked by smoke and lights, then began to sing their old hits “Bye Bye Bye” and “Girlfriend.”
While the audience screamed and applauded, quite a few stars were similar wowed by the ‘NSYNC reunion. Lady Gaga could be seen in the crowd swaying to the music in her latest fashion statement, a clamshell bra, while Taylor Swift looked stunned with excitement at seeing the return of ‘NSYNC on stage.
Sadly, the reunion couldn’t last forever, and after giving fans some lyrics of their songs, ‘NSYNC faded together into the smoky background.
This marks the very first time that NSYNC has appeared together for a special VMAs performance since 2001, which had Michael Jackson coming on stage with the boy band stars for a great rendition and performance of “Pop.”
While the ‘NSYNC reunion has had rumors circulating about the supposed get-together for several days, it was all but confirmed earlier this weekend after Joey Fatone’s father confirmed that the boys would be getting back together.
"I couldn't even say why he's doing it though," Fatone said on Saturday. "Why, at this point in his life. Now he's his own man."
