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.

N Sync Reunion

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.”


While Justin Timberlake‘s post-band career has included worldwide success as a music superstar, actor and sex symbol, there is no bad blood or resentment.

His dedication of the Vanguard Award to the other members of N Sync last night was a classy gesture, as he wouldn’t be where he is without them.

As for the rest of the guys, THGers, well, you’ll always have 8/25/13.

Watch their performance below, and enjoy a couple of animated GIFs highlighting the first N Sync live gig since 2003, and likely the last until 2023:
