*NSYNC To Reunite At VMAs?

By Michael Nelson / August 20, 2013

Did you guys see This Is The End? It’s a great film, one of my favorites of 2013, you totally should check it out! If you have yet to do so, though, consider this a SPOILER ALERT:

The flick ends with a reunited Backstreet Boys as the soundtrack to heaven itself, singing and dancing their way through the Max Martin-penned “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).” It’s probably one of the few times in history that Backstreet Boys will have beaten arch nemeses *NSYNC at anything — because there’s no way the rumored *NYSNC reunion at the VMAs will be better than the final scene of This Is The End.

But, says Page 6, *NSYNC will reunite just the same, as part of the celebration surrounding Justin Timberlake’s Video Vanguard reception honors. Here’s the scoop:

MTV announced that Timberlake, who topped the charts in the late ’90s with the band, will perform at the VMAs and receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. But we’re told former bandmates J.C. Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick are scheduled to join him onstage for a reunion performance. On Friday night, the *NSYNC crew were all spotted in the singer’s VIP section at his concert with Jay Z at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, joining Jessica Biel and Timberlake’s mother, Lynn Harless.

Man, Chris Kirkpatrick hasn’t seen a VIP section since the Clinton administration! Musta been sweet. Check back Sunday night to see if this rumored reunion does in fact go down. Which, between you and me? It will. And if somehow it doesn’t, I’ll buy you a Coke, because really without those old *NSNYC vids, Timberlake doesn’t exactly have the portfolio to justify any sort of Video Vanguard award. (Unlike, say, Robin Thicke.)
