Justin Timberlake is apparently set to reunite with the rest of 'NSync this Sunday at the MTV Video Music Awards. Timberlake will receive the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award at the show, where former bandmates J.C. Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick will join him onstage for a special performance, according to the New York Post.

How 'NSync Could Make a Comeback

Timberlake is tied with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis this year for the most award nominations, and he has won a number of Moonman statues in the past as a solo artist and as a member of 'NSync. A rep for the singer wasn't available for comment on a potential 'NSync reunion.

Kanye West, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Robin Thicke are also scheduled to perform. 

The superstar boy band announced their hiatus in 2002 after the group's Celebrity tour, and their last televised performance together was a Bee Gees medley at the 2003 Grammy Awards. 

The MTV Video Music Awards will air live from Brooklyn's Barclays Center this Sunday.

Song Stories

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
