‘NSYNC Reunites At 2013 MTV Video Music Awards With Justin Timberlake [VIDEO]
The rumored ‘NSYNC reunion happened during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, satisfying diehard fans of the late-90s boy band with their abbreviated performance of hit “Bye, Bye, Bye.”
‘NSYNC was brought together as part of a celebration of their former frontman-turned-solo sensation Justin Timberlake. At just 32, Timberlake was awarded at the 2013 VMAs with the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award. All four of the other singers – Joey Fatone, Lance Bass, JC Chasez and Chris Kirkpatrick – participated in the historic moment in pop music.
Before ‘NSYNC reunited, Timberlake performed a medley of his solo hits, including “Like I Love You,” “My Love,” “Cry Me a River,” and “Suit & Tie.”
When Fatone, Bass, Chasez and Kirkpatrick joined him on the stage, they started off singing the chorus from “Girlfriend.” They then jumped into a snippet from “Bye, Bye, Bye” and admirably took on the dance moves that had once been just as much a part of the song as the lyrics. Following the brief performance together, Timberlake launched back into his solo show.
Some thought the reunion was a bit too short:
I've had heartburn that lasted longer than that NSync reunion
