The MTV Video Music Awards are less than a week away, and rumors are swirling that the hit boy band 'N Sync could be reuniting as part of the ceremony. Comprised of members Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass and Chris Kirkpatrick, the boy band was wildly popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s but has not been together for nearly 10 years.
Timberlake will certainly be a part of the show, as he is nominated for six of the custom trophies. He is also slated to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, which is given to select artists as the show's lifetime achievement award. The prevailing thought is that, as part of this recognition, producers want 'N Sync to do a reunion performance to honor the act that originally launched Timberlake to fame.
'N Sync hasn't performed live together since the 2003 Grammy Awards, and they haven't appeared at the Video Music Awards since 2001.
If the band does get together, it will cap off a long list of musicians set to perform during the show. MTV has already revealed that Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Demi Lovato, Robin Thicke, Drake and more will take to the stage.
