Lance Bass confirmed NSYNC will "sit down this summer" to talk possible reunion, and we're freaking out
Following their well-received mini-reunion at Coachella this year, NSYNC is considering getting together again. Lance Bass recently told Variety that the boy band will soon discuss the possibilities of a reunion project in the midst of vetting offers. We’re crossing our fingers that this ain’t no lie.
“We haven’t talked about what the next step is but I know we’ll sit down during the summer together and figure it out,” Bass said, though he added that the Coachella reunion was “definitely a one-off.”
Though the band’s popularity continues, fans were reminded of their music when Ariana Grande released her hit “Break Up with Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored,” which samples “It Makes Me Ill,” from NSYNC’s 2000 album, No Strings Attached.
In April, Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick all joined Grande on stage during weekend one of Coachella. Noticeably absent was Justin Timberlake, though he later applauded the group on their performance via Instagram.
“You guys killed it last night,” Timberlake wrote, adding a raised hands emoji. The whole band, including Timberlake, previously reunited at their Walk of Fame ceremony last April. However, while all five members shared their appreciation for each other in a series of speeches, the group didn’t sing any of their old hits. Prior to that joyful occasion, the last time all five men got together was for Chasez’s 40th birthday bash in August 2016.
Fatone recently spoke about a possible reunion, saying “never say never” despite Timberlake’s busy solo schedule.
“We have to have the conversation, even without Justin. The whole thing about it is it’s really awkward. It’s not awkward, but it’s weird,” he told Us Weekly. “People will be like, ‘If Justin doesn’t do it, the group’s not gonna do it.’ That wasn’t even the case. That’s not even the conversation. Everyone’s heads are in different times and different places in our lives.”
