'NSync Reportedly Reuniting at Sunday's VMAs: What Must Their Set Include? Take Our Poll!

'NSync ReunionDon’t really wanna make it tough, but with the New York Post reporting that an ‘NSync reunion is all but certain for Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards (9/8c), this is probably our last chance to shout requests into the Internet in the hopes that JC, Lance, Joey, Chris and/or Justin will hear us.

Making matters even more heightened? It’s been 10 years since the ’90s boy-band sensation last appeared together on TV, and if they keep up this once-a-decade pace, their next sighting won’t be till 2023.

Naturally, we can expect at least a couple of solo snippets — hopefully “SexyBack” and “Cry Me a River,” yes? — from Mr. Timberlake himself; after all, he’s scheduled to receive this year’s Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award as part of the ceremonies. But as far as the ‘NSync portion of the telecast, there are dozens of directions the band could go.

We’ve taken the liberty of brainstorming a few options and putting them in a poll, so scroll down and vote for your three favorites, and then hit the comments to continue the discussion.

Are you stoked about the return of ‘NSync, or do you prefer Justin as a solo artist? Any other moments of nostalgia you’d like to see at the VMAs? (I’d call for a 3LW encore, but you know the kids today would be all, “3L-who?”)

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    It should really be them doing the exact same performance from 2000. This I Promise You, Bye Bye Bye, It’s Gonna Be Me medley with those cool TV screens with their faces. Show these kids how it’s done.

  2. Sara says:

    It was the toughest decision in the world to choose just 3

  3. Mel says:

    SO EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Best. News. Ever. On GMA it was said they will be performing NO Strings Attached. It better be true and not just a rumour GMA ;)

  4. Aprilcot says:

    This just made my day and I think the best news I’ve heard in a month. I may have to go home from work now…I’m too excited to focus.

  5. lll says:

    I can’t believe I’m this excited to see NSync reunite. I want them to perform It’s gonna be me (my fav song), Bye Bye Bye and puppet choreography, but I agree with Sara who said it’s hard to choose just three.

    • Liz says:

      Agree choosing three was a death sentence. Oh let’s get ready for the backstreet crowd to start their usual out band is better & our band never left. Hey absences makes the heart grow fonder

  6. Sarah says:

    No “Super Size It”?

  7. Rebecca says:

    I haven’t watched this awards show in years, but there is no way I can miss an NSync reunion!!!!! OMG

  8. Julz says:

    I am so irrationally excited for this! Best. Pop Boy Band. Ever.

  9. Pete Grant says:

    The only thing really needed is for the sound to go out during their set. :-)

  10. Lynne says:

    If this is real, this will be the first VMAs that I watch for almost 10years… Just as I was thinking of what I would watch instead of it on Sunday, THIS HAPPENS!!!! Oh please have it be real!!!!

  11. natalia h says:

    Oooh, I like how this is going! I love Tearing up my Heart. If they do that, I’ll die! But happy. :D

  12. mellafe says:

    Ohhh, I like the way this poll is going! I love Tearing Up My Heart. If they do that, i’ll die but happy.

  14. Babybop says:

    This is the best thing to ever happen on the VMAS… I still jam out to them in my car!

  15. Susan says:

    I am a 50-something Grandma and I am excited about this!

  16. Alex says:

    Meh, the Backstreet Boys are still better. :)

  17. alistaircrane says:

    Although I prefer the Backstreet Boys, I am glad this is happening. Justin seems so ashamed of his *NSYNC past.

  18. Andrea says:

    I’d add “Pop” to the set list.

  19. Winnie says:


  20. dee123 says:

    Damn. I wish a couple of the guys had told JT to stick it.

  21. Mikael says:

    I might actually watch the VMAs this year, with this and the rumored Danity Kane reunion.

  22. Melissa says:

    gosh my heart races just thinking about it! oh i would feel like an excited teenager at one of the many *NSYNC concerts I attended! sure now i REALLY don’t have a chance with Lance… but a dream is a dream ;)
    I hope this happens how fun! And back in the day they dominicated the VMA’s so it would be a since time to bring it back :)
