From the minute it was announced that Justin Timberlake is receiving the Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Awards Sunday night, rumors have been flying that *NYSNC is reuniting.
And it’s looking more and more like reality. Here are the clues:
Lance Bass wouldn’t confirm the reunion on his Sirius XM radio show Tuesday, but he did say, “It’s amazing to see the reaction out there on Twitter and social media … [and] how many people are supporting ‘NSYNC. It’s so cute to see how many people are supporting [us].” He also said, it would be “an amazing time.”
While Lance Bass, Chris Kirkpatrick, J C Chasez or Joey Fatone won’t spill the beans — Joey’s father told RadarOnline the group is reuniting and “doing a performance.”
According to Us Weekly, *NSYNC is expected to perform “Bye Bye Bye” from their 2000 album No Strings Attached and “will reenact some of their greatest videos in a medley.”
“Then Justin will sing his new song ‘Take Back the Night’ and get his [Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award],” the site says.
On Saturday, a *NSYNC verified Twitter account popped up with a tweet teasing fans of the ’90s boy band with: “Mic check, mic check one .. two … is this thing on?!”
Lance Bass, who lives in LA, was spotted with his boyfriend in New York on Saturday.
We’ll ll find out for sure Sunday night at 9 p.m. when the show begins on MTV.
