NSYNC, the American boy band formed in Orlando, had been a cultural phenomenon in the 90s. Band members Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass broke into the pop scene in 1995 and have since sold more than 70 million records worldwide. Now, 15 years after they announced their hiatus in 2002, the band is finally getting their well-deserved place amongst the stars at the Hollywood Walk of Fame along Hollywood Boulevard.

Celebrating their contributions

The historic event in music was attended by the band’s close friends and family, which included celebrities such as Ellen DeGeneres and Carson Daly.

DeGeneres and Daly hosted the event and shared their fondest memories of working with the band during the ceremony. Some of the people who spoke on stage also poked fun at the band, which was iconic in cementing the typical boy band image back in the 90s. Alongside boy band groups such as the Backstreet Boys and Boyzone, NSYNC became one of the biggest sensations in the music scene during that time. NSYNC has been recognized as one of the best selling bands in history, which includes holding the record for most copies sold in a day for over fifteen years.

Band’s legacy

As reported by People, the band members have apparently not seen each other in over 20 months since the five of them were gathered at Chasez’s 40th birthday celebration in 2016. Each of the members has had their own projects since their breakup in 2002.

Justin Timberlake has had the most success in the music industry since the band split up. The 37-year-old singer recently released his fifth studio album, “Man in the Woods,” which featuring chart-topping songs such as “Say Something” and “Filthy.” Chasez, on the other hand, has had some success in the past after he released his debut album, “Schizophrenic,” in 2004. The other three members, namely Bass, Kirkpatrick, and Fatone, have not returned to the music industry since the band split up.

Possible Reunion

Since the band announced their “temporary hiatus” in 2002, fans have been clamoring for them to reunite and produce more songs. However, the band has not recorded any new material since then. The band was last seen performing together in 2013 when the rest of the members joined Timberlake on stage in a 90-second concert at the MTV VMA Video Vanguard Awards. Shortly after the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, Bass told reporters that the band actually has no plans to reunite “right now” and that they are just enjoying getting their star on the iconic Hollywood street.
