UPDATE: *NSYNC just tore up our hearts. Lance Bass tweeted on Sunday that despite much speculation and excitement, the boy band won't be reuniting in a "SNL" performance or sketch on the show's 40th anniversary special.
For the record , we are not performing or doing a skit tonight on SNL. But look hard for us in he audience! Fun night ahead! #SNL40

EARLIER: It's bye, bye, bye to your other weekend plans.
The "Saturday Night Live" 40th anniversary special was already going to be huge, but a possible *NSYNC reunion just made it must-see TV. The band's official Twitter account gave fans the best Valentine's Day present ever on Saturday by hinting that the boys may reunite on the show this Sunday:
Gee, it's good to be together again"

*NSYNC got back together briefly at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, with all the original members reuniting to perform in honor of Justin Timberlake receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. However, subsequent interviews put future reunions in doubt.
*NSYNC's reps did not immediately respond to a request for comment from HuffPost Entertainment.
If the band does get back together for the special on Sunday, they'll join the likes of Paul McCartney, Kanye West and Taylor Swift at the show. And if not, they'll just be tearin' up our hearts.
