Justin Timberlake will reportedly reunite with *NSync at the MTV Video Music Awards this weekend.
The ‘Mirrors’ hit-maker is set to surprise audiences by inviting his former band-mates – Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick – on stage when he performs at the annual music awards ceremony on Sunday (25.08.13).
According to a local newspaper, the ‘Bye Bye Bye’ group will come together for the first time in over a decade to celebrate Justin receiving the reflective Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for his contributions to the music industry.
The 32-year-old star is expected to perform some of his biggest solo hits and will also pay homage to his seven-year career with the multi-platinum selling boy band.
Ahead of their reunion, Justin’s former band-mates are said to have been seen together in the VIP area at his ‘Legends of the Summer’ concert with Jay Z in Miami last week, where they joined his wife, Jessica Biel, and mother, Lynn Harless.
*NSync launched in 1995 and enjoyed worldwide success at the height of their fame between 1998 and 2002, including a string of hits such as ‘Tearin’ Up My Heart’, ‘It’s Gonna Be Me’ and ‘Girlfriend’.
At the pinnacle of their success, the teen heartthrobs – who were created by Backstreet Boys manager Lou Pearlman – sold a staggering one million copies of their album ‘No Strings Attached’ in a single day.
The group quietly went on a hiatus in 2002 but never reunited.
That same year, Justin began his successful solo career with debut album, ‘Justified’.
