*NSYNC VMA Performance: Justin Timberlake's Boy Band Reunites For MTV Onstage Reunion

Much to the delight of '90s kids everywhere, the now grown-men of former boy band *NSYNC reunited on Sunday evening for a performance at MTV's Video Music Awards.

VMA nominee Justin Timberlake was joined by his former *NSYNC bandmates, Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick at Brooklyn's Barclays Center for a highly anticipated reunion. Rumors began swirling in the days leading up to the VMAs that the famed boy band would perform, but the hype was never confirmed by anyone in Timberlake's or MTV's camps.

Timberlake was celebrated at the VMAs with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award, an honor that brought the members of *NSYNC together. The men performed parts of "Bye, Bye, Bye" and "Girlfriend." After *NSYNC released their last studio album in 2001, appearances by all five members of the group have been rare.

The 32-year-old Timberlake led the awards show with six nominations, tied with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. The singer was up for Video of the Year, Best Male Video, Best Pop Video, and Best Editing for "Mirrors," and Best Collaboration and Best Direction for "Suit & Tie" with Jay-Z.

Both "Mirrors" and "Suit & Tie" were featured on Timberlake's 2013 comeback album, "The 20/20 Experience." The album performed well for Timberlake, hitting No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and getting certified platinum. He will release his follow-up to the project, "The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2" in September.

Live updates from the show are available below.
