Don’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?”)
