In a time when looking back on previous trends and classics seems to overshadow anything new that may come our way, we get teased with the possibility of something that could be the ultimate cap to our nostalgic marathon.

Britney Spears made hearts pump with excitement when she casually shared that she'd love to collaborate with none other than her famous ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake recently. When asked who her dream collaborators would be during a fan Q&A for Most Requested Live with Romeo, the "Make Me" songstress mentioned Aerosmith and Gwen Stefani, and then noted, "Justin Timberlake is very good."

Um, yeah! So when E! News' Sibley Scoles caught up with fellow 'N Sync member Lance Bass, we had to get his thoughts on the possible pairing (spoiler alert: he's all about it, too!).

"I would love to see that happen, of course. I think everyone in the world wants to see them together again in any capacity. It's like everyone's childhood dream," Bass (very accurately) tells us on the MTV Video Music Awards red carpet.

He added, "I think it would be an incredible collaboration. I would want it to be a dance number, though. I want them to both—kinda like that Michael-Janet [Jackson] type thing, would be incredible."

Yes, exactly! Could you imagine the dance number these two could do?! Sorry, getting carried away already (but seriously, JT, your move).

But speaking of nostalgia, Spears took everyone back last night when she made her return to the VMA stage for the first time in nearly 10 years. She began her set with "Make Me," walking out in a sheer jumpsuit with yellow sequins and bright yellow boots, and not too long afterward, G-Eazy joined her on stage to heat things up.

She eventually transitioned into "Me, Myself & I," and continued the sexy dancing to the delight of everyone who watched.

Before the iconic awards show, Britney revealed she was excited but nervous for what was to come. "I think there's something in the air with the VMAs," she told Cubby and Carolina in The Morning radio show Friday. "It's like electric. I can't really explain it."

The 34-year-old continued, "Every time I've performed there it's always been one of those really big, nerve-racking experiences and the people that come, those celebrities, are so much fun and different...I still get very nervous."
