And as if watching those two young lovebirds wasn’t exciting enough, they were joined by the rest of Nsync (swoon!), Aerosmith, Mary J. Blige and Nelly.
I mean, is there anything cooler than that group of people? In 2001… NO.
Nsync kicked off the halftime show with “Bye Bye Bye,” which transitioned into the #1 song of the year: Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” (which still makes us tear up thinking about the end of Armageddon).
The rest of the performance was a mix of Nsync and Aerosmith until finally Britney, Mary J. and Nelly joined in during a sick version of “Walk This Way,” at which point Brit and Justin sang together on stage, and we all died a little because it was just too much handle.
Check out the full show in the video above. (And if you’re specifically looking for Brit and Justin, scroll to the 8:20 mark).
