Remember when NSYNC reunited at the MTV Video Music Awards last year and fans lost their minds?

Well... let's hope you've bookmarked a video of that performance on your computer. Because it won't be happening again any time soon.

"It was fun, it was interesting, but I don't know if it's ever going to happen again," Joey Fatone told Huffington Post this week. "I don't know whether or not something will ever happen again, but again you always say never say never because that happened.

"That was never gonna happen and all of a sudden it did happen."

Fatone also took a moment to throw some shade on his former group’s competition when asked about the recent Backstreet Boys tour.

Last night's N Sync reunion was the talk of the music world, but it looks definitively like a one-off. The fierce five are done once again after that effort.

While N Sync came together as a part of Justin Timberlake's performance, in honor of his Vanguard Award, there is no talk of reforming the band.

Joey Fatone‘s dad, Joseph Fatone, Sr., said “People are hyping this [reunion] as to mean like next month they’ll go on tour, but there’s been no talk of it."

“Yes there are still fanatical fans who hope for one day that N Sync will get back together, but the truth is that they are all doing their own thing now.”

“I don’t think they should pump this up as much. It’s not like they’re going on tour.”

Justin Timberlake and N Sync will reportedly hold a one-night, much-anticipated (?) reunion this Sunday night at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The New York Post reports that JT and his former bandmates will take the stage together during the show this weekend at the Barclays Center.

The boy band disbanded in 2002.

A reunited N Sync, while not confirmed, isn’t the wildest stretch of the imagination for an event of this magnitude, and one made for huge PR stunts.

The crew did reunite last week, too, just not on stage.

J.C. Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick were in the VIP section for JT's show with Jay-Z Friday. Will they join him again Sunday?

The Post claims they will celebrate Timberlake collecting the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, for "pioneering and innovative impact" on music videos.

See one of N Sync's "pioneering" efforts after the jump and tell us whether you think a reunion of the former heart throbs on stage would be a good thing:

Britney Spears to Joey Fatone: Ding dang! I gon' git ma drink on, y'all!

Well, that's what we imagine she's saying, at least. Pretty much all the time.

According to People, former *NSync-er and Dancing with the Stars runner-up Joey Fatone is offering his pal, the troubled Britney Spears, a reprieve.

"Britney, call me, come over to my house, come to Orlando, get away from it all," Joey Fatone told Extra. "It's a good thing to get out of L.A."

Last weekend, the embattled pop star spent time in Atlanta for some reason after crying a river after being charged with a hit-and-run in Los Angeles.

Britney Spears is working on a comeback with a new album due out in November. But she's suffered a series of setbacks, such as sucking at the MTV Video Music Awards and her public battle with ex-husband K-Fed over custody of their two little sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

"I think Britney just needs some time, to really heal," says Fatone, who has known Spears for many years. The current Singing Bee host was also a member of N' Sync with Spears' former flame, Justin Timberlake.

Joey Fatone hasn't seen Britney Spears in some time, but has a message for his old friend: "If you're there, let me know. I'm here for you, sweetheart."

We thank for providing us with the following report. Now, let's get right to the opening night of this season's Dancing with the Stars ...

Gilles Marini and Cheryl Burke Photo

Ian Ziering and Cheryl Burke (Cha Cha Cha) - It's tough to be the first dancers of the night, but Ian and Cheryl did a tremendous job. Their energetic performance included some decent footwork. Cheryl's hair was gorgeous, as usual, but I wasn't a fan of the Ziering facial hair. The judges gave Ian some technical criticism, but the pair walked away with a fair score of 21 (Carrie: 7, Len: 7, Bruno: 7).

Paulina Porizkova and Alec Mazo (Foxtrot) - Paulina immediately won sympathy after her partner said that his father had a lot of her pinup photos. Harsh. The former supermodel was worried about looking like Bullwinkle on the dance floor, but she was graceful and lovely. Her choice of dress and hair only emphasized the sophistication of the performance. The judges' opinions differed a bit, unfortunately, and the couple received a 19 (6, 6, 7).

Billy Ray Cyrus and Karina Smirnoff (Cha Cha Cha) - Expected a lot from Billy Ray, and his mullet-themed performance was a big disappointment. Was hoping that Karina's wigs would not show up for a few weeks, but her hair malfunction caused one of the biggest snafus of the night. Billy Ray is very charming, but I had no idea what he was going for out there. The couple's mess of a performance deserved their score of 13 (5, 4, 4).

Leeza Gibbons and Tony Dovolani (Foxtrot) - After making such a big deal of her age, was surprised that Leeza picked a costume that exposed so much of her back. Her behind-the-scenes power struggle with Tony was amusing, however. Their performance seemed stiff; Leeza is not as limber as her younger competitors. She does have great presence, though, and hopefully she can use her work ethic to her advantage. Score: 15 (5, 5, 5).

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson (Cha Cha Cha) - There's no way that this guy is an underdog. He has more dance experience than any other contestant, and it showed. Joey and Kym's performance was crowd-pleasing and the most technically proficient of the evening. They won everyone over and earned an impressive 24 points (8, 8, 8).

Laila Ali and Maksim Chmerkovskiy (Foxtrot) - With her boxer's physique, Laila manages to be gorgeous and intimidating at the same time. Expected her strong figure to be her downfall, but it ended up being an advantage. Would not have guessed that any couple could generate more heat than Maksim and Willa Ford from last season, but these two are seriously sexy together. Their intense, competitive personalities came through on the dance floor, and the judges rewarded them with a 23 (7, 8, 8).

John Ratzenberger and Edyta Sliwinska (Cha Cha Cha) - John deserves some major points for coming in as a last-minute replacement and doing a presentable job with his dance. The actor was dignified and enthusiastic, and his performance was better than the judges had expected. As usual, Edyta opted for as little clothing as possible, dancing in what can only be called a bikini dress. Luckily, John avoided looking like a dirty old man and received a respectable 17 for his efforts (6, 5, 6).

Shandi Finnessey and Brian Fortuna (Foxtrot) - Bruno compared this couple to Ken and Barbie. Both dancers were impressed with one another's cuteness, and their performance was about as passionate as two dolls moving across the dance floor. Shandi has height on her side, however, and could go far if she shows more emotion in her performances. The couple earned a bland 19 (6, 6, 7).

Clyde Drexler and Elena Grinenko (Cha Cha Cha) - Waited all night for someone to incorporate Clyde Drexler's nickname into the show, and it finally happened in Hour Two. The former athlete did do some gliding; he is certainly a crowd favorite. He seems a bit uncomfortable with his height on the dance floor, though, and his performance was too safe. Score: 18 (6, 6, 6).

Heather Mills and Jonathan Roberts (Foxtrot) - All of the build-up surrounding Mills' disability was pretty distracting. Found it difficult to watch her performance without anticipating some sort of major stumble. It turned out that the only tragic mishap during Heather and Jonathan's dance involved Heather's yellow-and-pink monstrosity of a dress. Yikes. Was she sponsored by a banana company? Her foxtrot was pretty tame, but she seemed to enjoy herself. Heather got no special treatment from the judges, who gave her performance an 18 (6, 6, 6).

Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough (Cha Cha Cha) - Shandi and Brian may not be the cutest couple after all. Apolo's energy and athleticism were infectious during his cha cha, and his partner Julianne is totally adorable. The pair gave an entertaining, playful performance, but the crowd seemed a little quiet at first. The judges gave them some technical advice, and seemed to love their energy. Score: 21 (7, 7, 7).

Those behind ABC's Dancing with the Stars may need to start handing out numbers. Celebrities are waiting in line to be chosen for the reality competition.

The latest Dancing hopefuls? Joey Fatone and Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson, the Duchess of York.

No, not Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson. Focus, people!

In the case of Fatone, the former Justin Timberlake bandmate let Orlando-based Real Radio 104.1 know that he wants to compete in the reality competition â€" though he previously turned down producers' requests three times.

So why the change of heart?

"It's kind of popular now," said Fatone, who has also performed on Broadway in Rent and is currently starring in Little Shop of Horrors.

Fatone also said he'd welcome the challenge - but we can't help but wonder: isn't he a trained dancer? Mario Lopez received some flak for that and he wasn't even in a boy band.

Ferguson, meanwhile, has told TV's Inside Edition that she, too, would "quite like to go on Dancing with the Stars," where, she said, "I'd like them to teach me the tango."

A spokesman for the network told the Associated Press that the fourth season's roster of celebrities will be announced later. We hope Anne Hathaway is included.

Just because.
