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.
The world exploded when Justin Timberlake finally won a Video Vanguard award at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2013. What made us even more excited? They've teased us for years about an N*Sync reunion and we finally, finally got one. Though it was small, it pleased us all anyway.
Lance Bass has become a gay icon
At the heart of it all, the boys of N*Sync truly are friends and they reunite to hang out whenever they can.
How can you forget their memorable MTV VMA performances when they were in their prime?
