'N Sync reunion to rock VMAs
Justin Timberlake is set to reunite with his ‘N Sync bandmates this weekend.
The pop superstar will receive the coveted Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, and is planning a special performance for the ceremony.
According to the New York Post, Justin will be joined on stage by his former band members Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, J.C. Chasez and Chris Kirkpatrick. It is believed the guys will thrill fans by performing a medley of their greatest hits from the late ‘90s.
Justin has enjoyed considerable success at the VMAs, having picked up an impressive 14 awards as a solo artist and with ‘N Sync. He also leads the way this year with six nominations following the success of his latest album The 20/20 Experience.
The star sparked rumours he was planning to reunite with his ex-group mates after the rest of the band were spotted in the VIP section at Justin’s recent concert with Jay Z at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami.
Earlier this year, Lance claimed Justin didn’t have the time to get back together with his bandmates.
"I don't think we're doing anything. I don't think [a reunion] would happen. Everyone is doing their own thing,” he said.
"Justin's doing his thing. I don't think he would have a moment off to do an ‘N Sync album. He's the busy one."
