*NSYNC Joins Twitter as VMAs Reunion Remains Unconfirmed

at 5:32 pm | By

It’s still a question of will they or won’t they, but as of Saturday, it looks like *NSYNC will probably reunite at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards.

The latest sign pointing to y-e-s is the quiet debut of an *NSYNC Twitter account.

And for those wondering, the account is 100 percent legit, as confirmed by Tatiana Simonian, Twitter’s Head of Artist and Industry Relations for Music.

Aight. I give up. Yes, @NSYNC have now officially joined Twitter. Verification forthcoming,” she wrote.

That little blue and white checkmark also appears beside the group’s name.

Here’s *NSYNC’s first tweet:


The tweet comes just days after Page Six reported that a reunion for Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone and Lance Bass was definitely happening on Sunday’s awards show.

But then Lance ruined the 13-year-old in all of us and said it wasn’t happening. JC also crushed our dreams.

Then on Friday, Joey’s dad said something about the guys reuniting, which was followed by Us Weekly sources revealing a set list for the performance. (Sources say they guys are going to “reenact some of their greatest videos in a medley,” with “Bye Bye Bye” leading the way).

The only thing that has been confirmed up until this glorious Saturday afternoon is that JT will receive the prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. His buddy Jimmy Fallon will present.

As noted in JT’s latest Instagram post, he’s all ready for the VMAs:

Oh *NSYNC, why must you toy with our emotions?

Guess we’ll have to wait another 24 hours to find out whether or not there will be a reunion of any sort. Either way, I’ll probably act like this tomorrow:

The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards will be handed out live at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. on Sunday at 9 p.m. EST.
