A 90s kid's dream Valentine's - the guys of N Sync and The Backstreet Boys, all in one show.
Guys. N Sync reunion. It happened. As with most classic pop culture moments, it happened during an episode of SNL. And the Backstreet Boys were there too. It wasn’t a coincidence either, as Valentine’s Day marked SNL’s 40th anniversary episode, so they had to make it a bit more special.
Who even needs a Valentine, when you've got the full line-up of N Sync together again.
The N Sync guys tweeted about their appearance earlier in the day, from their official account: "'Together again...Gee, it's good to be together again' #SNL40.”

NSYNC will be reuniting on Sunday (15th February) for a special appearance on Saturday Night Live's 40th Anniversary show.
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.
Success came and went for Backstreet Boys, but 20 years on, they're still a team.
The Backstreet Boys' time in the spotlight was a limited one at best, with so many elements contributing to their sudden fame and subsequent chart plunder. They unveiled a fresh new sound last year and now mark their return with a new documentary entitled 'Show 'Em What You're Made Of'.
Backstreet Boys ponder their career in a new documentary
The American boyband had their biggest career peak in 1999, but it wasn't long before they became another forgotten about boyband. They seemed to become an overnight hit in the UK and Europe, and soon they stormed their own nation. However, the success was blighted by lawsuits against their manager Lou Pearlman, who allegedly stole a large proportion of the band's earnings, not to mention problems with Jive Records, Nick Carter's desire to pursue a solo career, Kevin Richardson's departure and A.J. McLean's drug abuse confession.
In the late 90's and early 00's, The Backstreet Boys were the most powerful boy band in the world. After discovering that they had not been particularly popular in the US, the band travelled overseas and became a phenomenon in Europe. But the European scene was not enough for the American band, and they had to crack the US. With a career spanning years of highs and lows, The Backstreet Boys made their way from nothing, to Europe, to worldwide sensation. But what does that sort of strain does that success put on otherwise ordinary people? And just how does anybody overcome it?
'Backstreet Boys: Show 'Em What You're Made Of' is an upcoming documentary about the much loved boy band from documentary director Stephen Kijak. The film was set in motion when the band decided to meet in London in 2012 to work on a new album, yet they decided that they wanted to make a movie instead, telling the story of their band and its success. The band contributed all the music to the film, with a release date set for 30th January, 2015 in the US, and a worldwide release date of 26th February, 2015.
McBusted rocked out BST Hyde Park on Sunday with special guests Backstreet Boys and The Vamps.
Hyde Park's annual Barclaycard British Summer Time concert embarked on its first string of 2014 shows last week (3 - 6 July 2014) with a flurry of much-loved pop, rock and indie acts hitting London for the event.
Sunday was definitely one of the most anticipated days for BST Hyde Park with headliners McBusted rocking out the stage following their first nationwide tour as a supergroup.
The band, who are all the members of McFly and two of the members from defunct rock band Busted (Matt Willis and James Bourne), united last year and made their overseas live debut supporting One Direction on their 'Where We Are Tour' last month.
Oh dear. How much does 25 bring the average age for bankruptcy down?
It’s pretty tragic, but that’s life. Aaron Carter – younger brother of Nick Carter – has filed for bankruptcy at the tender age of 25. Now 25 isn’t really that tender, but when it comes to filing for bankruptcy, you usually expect it from someone 40+.
Then again, Carter started singing when he was about 2. He has assets worth just $8,232.16 – including computer and music equipment and $60 in cash – but owes creditors more than $2 million in liabilities. It’s the $60 in cash that we find the most depressing.
But not as depressing his poor dog, the one he valued at $0. Or did he do that so they wouldn’t take the little fella away from him? Is that how it works? We really, really hope so. At least then Aaron and King can hang out together in the park. That’s free.

'I Want Candy' singer Aaron Carter has filed for bankruptcy after amassing over $2 million in debt.
American singer Aaron Carter has filed for bankruptcy. Papers revealed by a US entertainment website detail how the 25-year-old singer owes more than $2 million. In addition to the money he owes his creditors he is also indebted to the IRS for over $1 million.
The papers list his assets, income and outgoings. The list is a sad breakdown of the 'I Want Candy' singer's financial life. His assets include, as TMZ reports, a 61" flat screen worth $500; two MacBooks; two Headset Mics; a Mini Keyboard; Portable Beats; a speaker; a guitar; $60 in cash; Louis Vuitton backpack; a duffle bag and a printer. This list amounts to around $2,500. Additionally he also lists a Brietling watch worth $3,750. Altogether, his assets total $8232; a paltry sum in comparison to his debt of millions.
Carter is currently living with a family member and his dog (which he lists as being worth $0) and states his expenses amount to $2005 each month. Carter, in this respect, is almost breaking even as he is earning around $1998.
