Justin Timberlake reunited with NSYNC in a reunion performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Aug. 25.

The former boyband came together for a one-time only performance at the VMAs to perform a medley of their hit songs, including all–time favorite "Bye Bye Bye."

Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick have not performed together since the 2003 Grammy Awards.

NSYNC's reunion was first confirmed by Fatone's father, Joseph Fatone Sr, who told Radar Online: "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."

Justin Timberlake was nominated for Video of the Year, Best Male Video, Best Pop Video and Best Editing for his single "Mirrors." He was also nominated for Best Direction and Best Collaboration for "Suit & Tie" featuring Jay-Z.


NSYNC joined Twitter for the first time as a band on Aug. 24, just one day before the 2013 MTV VMA award show. The @NSYNC account tweeted: "Mic check, mic check one.. two... is this thing on?!"

Later, Lance Bass tweeted to confirm that the Twitter account was official. "Yes, @NSYNC is the official twitter Happy weekend everyone!"

Prior to tonight's performance, NSYNC had not performed together for 10 years since they broke up over a decade ago.
