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

Get More: Awards, Polls

'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?”)

  • 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.

  • 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.

    • 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

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

    • There are so many songs I would want them to sing but “I Want You Back” is my song to them

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

  • Meh, the Backstreet Boys are still better. :)

    Comment by Alex – August 20, 2013 09:54 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Although I prefer the Backstreet Boys, I am glad this is happening. Justin seems so ashamed of his *NSYNC past.

  • I’d add “Pop” to the set list.

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

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

  • 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 ;)
