The rumor mill has been working at full capacity today with the news that 90s teen boyband *NSYNC may be reuniting for a performance at the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards. And though we fans don’t want to get our hopes up, it’s hard not to when every media outlet has published a story, including BuzzFeed who lives to rile up fans! See this or this.
But step back and imagine how we long suffering fans feel. *NSYNC has been on “hiatus” for over 10 years! We still have Mr. Timberlake, but we miss all of the guys; especially with all these johnny-come-lately boy bands popping up that still can’t hold a candle to what *NSYNC has done. I mean, they can’t even dance! I need my boy bands to murder some choreography, at the very least! But I’ll let them cook. Y’all can have those boy bands. I want my *NSYNC!
Justin Timberlake is already scheduled to perform, so it could easily set up like Beyonce at the Super Bowl, where Destiny’s Child joined her on stage for an all-too-short medley of their hits. I’m here for something like that as long as that vintage choreography is included! *coughBYEBYEBYEcough*
So, I will approach this with a level of caution not often displayed around these parts. I have to protect my emotions. But, if all these reports end up being false, the media is going to get their butts handed to them by somebody…
Spoiler alert: IT’S GONNA BE ME!
