Ahhhhhh!!! It would appear the fan reaction to the NSYNC reunion rumor worked magic because NSYNC is set to reunite on Sunday, during Justin Timberlake’s acceptance speech and performance for the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award. From Us Weekly:
“They will reenact some of their greatest videos in a medley,” one source says, singling out the smash hit “Bye Bye Bye,” from their 2000 album No Strings Attached. “Then Justin will sing his new song ‘Take Back the Night’ and get his [Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award].”
Another source notes that the group is still finalizing the setlist. Rehearsals are under way, though; all five guys convened in New York City on Aug. 23 to go over the performance, an insider tells Us.
And from …Joey Fatone’s own FATHER at Radar Online:
“I think it’s exciting,” Fatone tells RadarOnline.com exclusively, reiterating, “…they’re doing a performance. 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,” Fatone explains, suggesting the guys are taking this opportunity to thank the network and fans for their years of support, even after *NSYNC went on hiatus.
As for the details of what will go down, Fatone says, “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!”
