Rumor: 'N Sync Will Reunite at the MTV Video Music Awards

(Getty Images)If a new report from the NY Post is true, Justin Timberlake has finally decided to give the people what they want: An 'N Sync reunion at the MTV Video Music Awards, which take place this Sunday at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

A "source" (anonymous, of course) says Timberlake, who will be honored with the prestigious Video Vanguard Award, will be joined onstage by J.C. Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass for a special one-off performance. The rumor got a boost from the fact that Bass, Kirkpatrick, and Fatone were spotted in the VIP box at Timberlake's recent concert in Miami, Florida. Lance even posted an Instagram snap of the mini-reunion:

Unfortunately, Bass seemed to dash hopes of an actual reunion with a subsequent tweet:

This year's Video Music Awards promises to be an entertaining one, with the live television debuts of both Lady Gaga's "Applause" and Katy Perry's "Roar." But an 'N Sync reunion would really take things to the next level. Hopefully One Direction will be in the audience so they can get a first-hand glimpse at why their pseudo dance moves fail to impress us 20-something dinosaurs.
