Remember NSYNC, the boyband who sent millions of girls all over the globe into hysteria with their hit songs such as "Bye Bye Bye
", "It’s Gonna Be Me
", and of course, Justin Timberlake’s Maggi hair back in the 1990s?
The band sold more than 70 million records worldwide with multiple chart toppers, making them one of the best-selling boybands of all time.
The pop outfit consisting of Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Lance Bass, and Joey Fatone announced a ‘temporary’ hiatus in 2002 but never reunite again for new music or album.
They occasionally performed at award shows and charity events.
Fans were left wondering whether they will reunite once again, especially after Timberlake managed to launch a successful solo career post-hiatus.
Well, on 30 April, history was made as the band reunited for one of the most pivotal moments in their careers: NSYNC was finally awarded a Hollywood Walk of Fame star
Ellen DeGeneres and Carson Daly were also there to help induct the band and celebrate the historical occasion.
The boyband received their star five years after fellow boyband the Backstreet Boys received theirs.
“For all of you who came from far and wide to be here to share this moment with us, thank you so much — this really means the world to all of us,” Timberlake told fans during the ceremony.
JC Chasez also took the opportunity to cheekily deliver one of the most popular lines from their song that went on to become a long-awaited annual meme – “It’s Gonna Be Me (May)”, which obviously, sent fans into hysteria.
