The boy band burst on to the music scene in the late 1990s and stole the hearts of millions.
It might not have been the full-fledged reunion fans have been clamoring for since *NSYNC's 2002 hiatus, but Monday's (April 30) Hollywood Walk of Fame star ceremony did bring together Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and, yes, even Justin Timberlake for a very public celebration of their time as the world's biggest pop group.
'NSYNC boasted dozens of singles and multi-platinum albums.
Burnley near Europa League spot despite Brighton draw
It takes organisation, delivery of performance, the mentality to take on each game, and we've had that in abundance". Brighton were able to steal a point from Tottenham last weekend but have struggled over their last five games.
The boy band's star is the 2,634th on the popular tourist strip; the Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men are already on the walk. First off, I'm gonna sound like a broken record, but for all of your who came from and wide to be here to share this moment with us, thank you so much. Ellen DeGeneres and former TRL host Carson Daly presented the group with their star. "I just didn't have the strength then", Bass said during the Walk of Fame unveiling. "Thank you so much". I thought if I had come out, *NSYNC would be over, so out of fear, I kept my secret. As the five guys posed for pictures with their star and their families, fans started yelling, "Reunite!"
"This is one of the most enthusiastic crowds we've ever had", gushed Leron Gubler, president of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, as he ticked off the group's accomplishments: 30 million albums sold in the United States and 42 million more sold worldwide.
"I want to thank these four guys right here: Joey, JC, Chris, Justin". The name is also a play on the last letter of each of the initial member's names, which included bass singer Jason Galasso, who dropped out just before the group signed with Trans Continental Records. Over the weekend, Bass helped kick off the opening of the band's exclusive L.A. pop-up, The Dirty Pop-Up, at Hollywood & Highland and Fatone, with his family in tow, also paid a visit.
