You’re tearin’ up our hearts, *NSYNC! Fans were devastated when the 90s boy band didn’t end up taking the stage to perform on ‘SNL”s 40th anniversary special, after teasing they might! Here’s what disappointed fans are saying.
*NSYNC gravely disappointed their fans who were expecting a reunion on Saturday Night Live‘s 40th anniversary special on Feb. 15. In fact, that’s the main reason a lot of fans tuned in to begin with! People had high hopes for the band to reunite after they teased they were “together again” for SNL 40 — but as it turned out, we didn’t get the reunion of our dreams, and some fans were not happy!

*NSYNC Was Never Set To Perform On ‘SNL 40’
As it turns out, *NSYNC was never even set to perform, and instead there to show support for SNL, a source told E!. JC Chasez unfortunately couldn’t even make it to the show, as he was with his family since his sister just gave birth. Congrats, Uncle JC!
Lance Bass cleared the air on Twitter during the night, saying the band was neither performing or doing a skit, but to look for them in the audience. What a tease! Meanwhile, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick snapped an adorable pic together on the red carpet. But that still doesn’t make up for the lack of reunion!
