Nsync have announced they will be reuniting - but only for a one off appearance! The group, which was hugely successful in the 90s and early 00s, will be making a special guest appearance on Saturday Night Live's 40th Anniversary show. The show will be aired on Sunday (15th February).
Justin Timberlake will reunite with the other members of NSYNC for their Saturday Night Live appearance.
NSYNC made the announcement on Twitter on Saturday (14th February), mere hours before the show is due to air. '"Together again... Gee, it's good to be together again,"' the group tweeted.
The band, which consisted of Justin Timberlake, Jc Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass, first formed in 1995. The group announced a hiatus in 2002 and have regrouped temporarily for charity performances and special occasions fairly regularly in the intervening years. They last performed in public together in 2013 when they made a one-off appearance the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. The band has never officially announced their permanent split so there's still some hope of a reunion for die-hard fans.
NSYNC are not the only 90s heartthrobs to be making an appearance on the 40th Anniversary show as Backstreet Boys are also set to perform, as Us Weekly reports. BSB formed in 1993 and the band consists of Brian Littrell, A.J. McLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, and Kevin Richardson. The band has remained together although Richardson did leave for a period of six years from 2006.
It is uncertain if the groups will be performing or if they will make a special guest appearance as an interview or comedy segment on the show. They will not be the only musicians in attendance as Taylor Swift, Kanye West and Paul McCartney are reportedly due to appear.
