N*Sync is Finally Getting Their Star on the Walk of Fame! Here’s Why We Love Them
Most of us know of the popular, yet sadly dissolved, boy band N*Sync. Formed in Orlando, Florida in 1995, the boy band consisted of former “New MMC” Mouseketeers Justin Timberlake (just 14 years old at the time) and JC Chasez as well as members Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick. After their introduction to the world, teens around the world basically exploded with love of the boys. Though there was the constant argument over who was better, Backstreet Boys or N*Sync, we all knew who the clear winner was. Backstreet Boys didn’t stand a chance! On March 20, 2018, it was announced that this legendary boy band would finally be getting the recognition they deserve: receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on It’s Gonna Be May Day, April 30, 2018.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, we here at ALNM would like to share the reasons why we love N*Sync (in no particular order).
The boys broke the internet with this famous meme that is annually tweeted out by former member, Lance Bass.

Episode 056 - “2018 Ship Bracket”
Episode Length: 12:43
We discuss this year's ship bracket and announce the winner!
Admin Update: Comments section on poll closed due to lack of civil discourse.
Here's the new poll. The rules are as follows:
Be nice. Please.
Admin Note: This poll is being shut down due to wank and the lovely anonymous hate messages I've been receiving. Please find the new poll here with brand new rules to try to resolve many of the issues we have seen raised: http://www.alnmpodcast.com/articles/ship-bracket-new-championship-poll
Admin Note: Be nice to each other please. We have not seen any evidence of bot activity in this poll. I have seen a vote buying website providing unsolicited advertisement, but I have yet to see anyone actively promoting it. Ships having alliances is also not cheating. So, instead of negativity, let’s all share WHY you love your ship. Good luck!
Poll closes on March 26th at 12PM PST. Like last year, results will become hidden starting at Midnight Sunday night with the winner announced on the next episode of the podcast on Monday night. Shortly after we release the episode, results will be made visible again.
Official Summary: The Freedom - EP by Hamilton star Anthony Ramos includes the single "Freedom" as well as four other tracks.
ALNM rec: This is my go to album on Spotify right now during my drive home. These politically inspired songs all take full advantage of Ramos' impressive Broadway vocal range. They have me singing along every day.
Available to stream on Spotify and purchase on iTunes

Premiere Date: March 23, 2018
Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant star in this Netflix-original series as married realtors, Sheila and Joel, who are living a quiet life, raising their teenage daughter in Santa Clarita, Calif.

Barrymore and Olyphant also serve as executive producers, alongside showrunner and creator Victor Fresco ("Better Off Ted").
I’m posting this because, if I’m going to cry my way through this on a Monday morning, so are you all.
Admin edit: Just a quick reminder to be nice to each other (and us).
Polls close on March 22nd at 12PM PST. Have fun!
It's time for the Final Four! Vote for your favorite ship to get to this year's championship! Polls open at 4PM PST and run through March 22nd at Noon PST.
