Joey Fatone's father has confirmed an *NSync reunion.

The group - which also included Justin Timberlake, Lance Bass, Jc Chasez and Chris Kirkpatrick - are set to reunite at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday (25.08.13) to celebrate Justin being presented with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award for his contributions to the music industry.

Joseph Fatone Sr. told RadarOnline: ''They're doing a performance. I think it's exciting.

''I couldn't even say why he's doing it though. Why, at this point in his life. Now he's his own man.

''But it's more to the fact that MTV has made them all somewhat of stars, and also made Justin a star.

However, Joseph admitted he doesn't know the exact details, adding: ''I don't even know what has gone into this performance. ... I plead the fifth. I would suggest that you tell all your readers and everyone on the Internet, all your social media, tell them to watch!''

Ahead of their reunion, Justin's former bandmates, with the exception of JC, were seen together in the VIP area at his 'Legends of the Summer' concert with Jay Z in Miami last week, where they joined his wife, Jessica Biel, and mother, Lynn Harless.

*NSync launched in 1995 and enjoyed worldwide success at the height of their fame between 1998 and 2002, including a string of hits such as 'Tearin' Up My Heart', 'It's Gonna Be Me' and 'Girlfriend'.

At the pinnacle of their success, the teen heartthrobs - who were created by Backstreet Boys manager Lou Pearlman - sold a staggering one million copies of their album 'No Strings Attached' in a single day.

The group quietly went on a hiatus in 2002 but never reunited while that same year, Justin began his successful solo career with debut album, 'Justified'.
