NSYNC's VMA reunion: Lance Bass and Joey Fatone reveal the glitch we didn't see -- VIDEO

It’s been a few years — more than a decade, actually — since NSYNC wrapped their final tour, 2001’s PopOdyssey. So it was to be expected at the group’s brief VMA reunion, during Justin Timberlake’s career-spanning performance, that there could be a few hiccups onstage. What the guys couldn’t plan for, however, was the technical glitch that gave Chris Kirkpatrick some extra (accidental) time in the spotlight.

Lance Bass and Joey Fatone paid a visit to E!’s Hello Ross on Friday and revealed why there were reports of a “catfight” between Bass and Kirkpatrick at last month’s awards show. What really went down? Check out the video below:

NSYNC play hacky sack backstage because they thought it was 1998 again -- VIDEO

No strings attached!

If you haven’t yet made peace with the fact that an NSYNC reunion album is probably not happening, this nostalgia-ready video isn’t going to help things. On Monday, Lance Bass uploaded a clip of a little pre-show hacky sack game among a group of guys. Nothing to see here!

OH WAIT. The guys were NSYNC and the game was right before the VMAs, a.k.a. their pre-show performance ritual of passing a hacky sack to all five of them without dropping the ball lives on. Yippie-Yi-Yay! These are men in their 30s, so they are a little out of practice. The video is mostly cute for watching them try (Oh, Starbucks-clutching Justin, you do care!) and briefly remembering their goofy personas, stellar athletic performances or not.

Check out the video below and contemplate how many dollars you would spend to hang out backstage with the ever-so-briefly reunited boy band. (The limit does not exist.)

PopWatch Confessional: Stuck on a '90's feud -- A Backstreet Boys fan talks 'N Sync

The latest episode of Glee made me realize something about myself: I can’t let go of certain things. And by things, I mean my hatred of everything ‘N Sync-related.

As a child of the ’90’s (literally, I was born in 1990), I felt forced, at a very young age, to pick a side: Backstreet Boys or ‘N Sync. I immediately gravitated toward the pitch-perfect harmonies of BSB as opposed to the Justin Timberlake-JC Chasez duets that featured three other dancing guys. It might seem harsh, but any child of the ’90’s knows that this rivalry was real and cutthroat. And back then, it was okay for me to be so harsh in my approach to pop music, so long as it was out of love for Brian, AJ, Howie, Nick and Kevin. Ten years later? I’m not so sure it’s rational anymore.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not ashamed of my ongoing love affair with the best boy-band of all time. When I was 20, I went to two Backstreet concerts within four days of each other. And so did my 50-year-old father, who also enjoys pitch-perfect harmonies… just sayin’. You see, the love and dedication isn’t what I’m worried about. It’s the hatred.

It’s the fact that when my friends put an ‘N Sync song on while we’re having an impromptu dance party (as everyone does), I stop dancing. And as much as they think I’m being ridiculous, and as much as I know that I’m being ridiculous, I just can’t fake it. And when Glee did a mash-up of “Bye Bye Bye” and “I Want It That Way,” I was a little offended. However, if my obsession stopped there, I might be alright. But it doesn’t… READ FULL STORY
