And Justin Timberlake sharing the stage with Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, JC Chasez and Lance Bass again for a few minutes really showed us all how much we miss the boy band together! So is there any chance of an 'N Sync reunion tour?
"I'm not gonna say it's never gonna happen," Kirkpatrick told Johnny's House, an Orlando radio show, on Monday, Aug. 26.
"But [the VMA reunion] was what it was, and this was a moment for Justin to get his accolades"—Timberlake received the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award—"and for us to say we had so much respect for what we did," Kirkpatrick added. "For him to honor us the way he did—it really was kinda crazy."
Don't start the search for your perfect baby-blue concert outfit just yet, though. Kirkpatrick, 41, said the guys "haven't really talked about" the possibility of going on tour again. "I mean, except for Joey. Joey was the first one like, 'OK, guys! Let's go on tour now!'"
So if 'N Sync were to do a reunion tour, how long would it take them to prepare?
"Hypothetically," he said, "I mean, it takes weeks and weeks. It's not just something you can just jump right back into…It takes a lot of work. And with everything we do, it wasn't just, 'Hey, let's do it.' We keep doing it until we're happy with it and it's right."
Chris admitted he was "so nervous" before 'N Sync's grand reunion at the VMAs on Aug. 25, but as soon as he was back with his fellow bandmates, he had "a calming feeling."
"I felt so confident again," he explained. "When I get up there with those guys, I feel like I can't mess up—I can't go wrong. Those are my brothers. That's what we've always done—we just go up and do what we do."
Kirkpatrick said he and the others "were really honored in the fact that [Justin] asked us to come back and perform with him. We were a big part of his life."
And refreshingly, "Nobody's changed one bit," he said. "Ten years—11 years later—we get in, and I'm like, 'Oh, this is gonna be crazy,' and I'm like, 'Nope!' Everybody's exactly the same."
'N Sync forevah.
