Justin Timberlake, 37, was a guest on the show, but chose to bring out his former bandmates - Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick - for an extra bonus. But today, *NSYNC will finally receive their star on the Walk of Fame in Los Angeles. But so many nights onstage, I'd see so many young, gay fans singing their hearts out and I wanted so badly to let you know, I was you.
"We have a ridiculous group chat", Chasez revealed.
Both *NSYNC and the Spice Girls enjoyed fame at similar times, with Victoria Beckham revealing during an interview on The Late Late Show with James Corden past year (17) that they had first met at an airport in Germany. Timberlake, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, Lance Bass, and JC Chasez posed with their brand new star Monday then followed it up with a surprise appearance on Ellen. The group performed a medley of its greatest hits ahead of Justin Timberlake winning the Video Vanguard award. Growing up in MS in a Southern Baptist church, in a town where everyone knows your business, I had a secret: "I was gay", Bass said.
'NSYNC sold more than 30 million records in the United States and 42 million more in the rest of the world.
That sense of community inspired the members of the beloved boy band to make a series of emotional speeches, not the least of which came from Bass. They were founded in 1995 in Orlando, Florida.
