Dressed in coordinated shades of blue, grey, and white, the quintet took the stage to the thunderous applause of fans and fellow celebrities, including Taylor Swift, who was seated prominently next to Ice Spice. NSYNC kicked off the reunion by reminiscing about their VMA award-winning music videos, sending a wave of nostalgia through the audience.
The highlight of the evening was when NSYNC presented the award for Best Pop, a category that saw Taylor Swift crowned as the winner for her hit song “Antihero.” Justin Timberlake, ever the showman, referred to her as “the unstoppable Taylor Swift.” Swift, clearly thrilled by NSYNC’s presence, expressed her fandom by reminiscing about having NSYNC dolls and even received a friendship bracelet from one of the group’s members.
During her gracious acceptance speech, Swift playfully teased NSYNC by asking, “Are you guys gonna do something? I need to know what it is!” Her words ignited a frenzy of speculation about what the beloved boy band might have in store for their fans.
Rumors had been circulating on the internet for weeks that NSYNC had recorded a new song, penned by Justin Timberlake, for the upcoming “Trolls Band Together,” the third installment of DreamWorks’ animated franchise. Judging by the film’s trailers, it appears to feature a storyline centered around a boy band reunion for Timberlake’s character, Branch. Fans can also expect the other four members of NSYNC—JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick—to join Timberlake in the film.
The movie introduces a fictional boy band called “BroZone,” and its trailer playfully references boy band culture. Posters bearing NSYNC’s familiar logo, accompanied by an animated troll hairstyle, have mysteriously appeared around Los Angeles, further stoking anticipation about the group’s involvement.
In addition to NSYNC’s potential return to the spotlight, “Trolls Band Together” boasts an impressive cast, including Anna Kendrick, Camila Cabello, Troye Sivan, Kid Cudi, Daveed Diggs, Amy Schumer, and many other notable stars.
While an official announcement regarding NSYNC’s plans has yet to be made, the VMAs reunion and hints of their involvement in the “Trolls” movie have ignited a fervor of excitement among fans. Could this iconic boy band be gearing up for a spectacular comeback? Only time will tell, but for now, fans are eagerly awaiting any news from the beloved group that defined an era of pop music.
