Justin Timberlake tells Lance Bass he's interested in NSYNC reunion as coronavirus lockdown brings band closer
Thanks to the recent coronavirus lockdown, most people have been shut off from their friends and family while they're busy self-isolating at home. But one band who have been sticking together during the recent quarantine are the millennial heartthrobs NSYNC, who recently revealed that there might be a reunion for them on the cards - in fact, the band members now hang out with each other online on a weekly basis.
During an April 7 episode of 'Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen', NSYNC member Lance Bass revealed that the boy band had now grown even closer ever since their individual members started appearing on the podcast that Bass hosts every day, called 'The Daily Popcast with Lance Bass'. NSYNC members Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Justin Timberlake have all taken to hanging out online with each other in the wake of the coronavirus crisis and it now evidently seems just like the old times when NSYNC were busy dominating the charts.
"The interviews really kind of even bonded us even more, especially during this quarantine,” said Lance Bass. “Your relationships, they get tighter, so now we have happy hours every week together on Zoom, which is fun.” When asked if the most famous member of the former pop group, Timberlake, was also joining in on the weekly Zoom video calls, Lance confirmed that it was true. “You did that, Lance Bass!” said an excited Andy Cohen, realizing that this was now just an official NSYNC reunion waiting to happen. “Bringing people together, Andy, bringing people together,” replied a beaming Bass.
Bass also shared what it was like hearing his famous musical brother Timberlake talk about their now-defunct band after so long. “I loved it, I thought it was fun,” Bass revealed. “I heard a lot of things for the first time coming out of Justin’s mouth about NSYNC. He doesn’t really talk about NSYNC too much. It was great to hear his perspective.”
Bass then shared a jaw-dropping possibility that arose during the course of his chat with Timberlake: “He actually would be interested in talking about a reunion,” Bass admitted.
That's potential chart-shattering news, so most NSYNC fans are bound to be excited by this revelation. The last time the entire band got together (in person) was at their Walk of Fame ceremony in April 2018, so with this major bombshell dropping, anything could happen. Ever since Bass, Chasez, Fatone and Kirkpatrick took the stage together during Ariana Grande's Coachella set on April 14, 2019, *NSYNC fans have been waiting for news of the band's reunion. A reunion does look mighty likely indeed, now that the NSYNC members all hang out together on a weekly basis. Stay tuned for more updates on this possible boy band reunion.
