It was the boy band reunion heard ‘round the world. In one of the most talked about moments of the 2013 VMAs, *NSYNC reunited for a brief, but glorious segment that included all five members.
It was as if more than 10 years hadn’t passed, but it wasn’t as simple as their choreography looked.
Chris Kirkpatrick was on a Florida radio show yesterday, spilling some behind-the-scenes orchestration that went into the telecast’s worst kept secret—an *NSYNC reunion in honor of the Video Vanguard Award that went to none other than Justin Timberlake.
“It was funny because all of us getting back together, we remember what we love about each other and what we hate about each other,” Chris said of the reunion.
If you're assuming their performance was a prelude to a future reunion tour, don’t get your hopes up. “No [tour],” Chris said, explaining it was solely for Justin and nothing more.
“Honestly, when he talked to us I thought we were just coming out with mic stands and singing,” Chris said. “When I came home from rehearsals my girl’s like, ‘Why are you drenched?’ I’m too old for this! I was so worried about not messing up for him.”
