Dreams do come true! *NSYNC, one of our favorite ’90s boy bands, is getting back together in honor of the ‘Saturday Night Live’ 40th anniversary special on Feb. 15!
There are a number of performances happening on the Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special, but we are most excited for *NSYNC! The boy band became the subject of all teenage girl fantasies back in the ’90s, and now they’re back for one epic reunion. Seriously though, Justin Timberlake and the rest of those cuties better sing “Bye Bye Bye!”
‘NSYNC Reuniting On ‘Saturday Night Live’
It was the tweet seen around the world.
Justin Timberlake was already confirmed to be part of the 40th anniversary celebration, but this tweet changed the game. The last time *NSYNC was on stage together was the 2013 MTV VMAs. It was beyond anything we could have ever imagined.
But that’s not all! The Backstreet Boys will be performing on the SNL special, too! How did we get so lucky?
The Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary special is going to be the most star-studded special ever. In addition to our boys, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey, Jimmy Fallon, Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Rihanna, Kanye West, Paul McCartney and so many more will be in attendance. The night will be filled with incredible performances and skits.
The special airs Feb. 15 from 8:00 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC. HollywoodLife.com will be providing full coverage of the anniversary special! Stay tuned!
Until then, we’ll just be reminiscing about the good ole days of *NSYNC. Remember Justin’s ramen noodle hair?
