Justin Timberlake Reunites With *NSYNC, Those Handsome Devils

by at .  Updated at .

The boys of *NSYNC got together on August 8 to toast bandmate JC Chasez's 40th birthday, and one thing was abundantly clear:

These men have made a deal with the devil, because all five former boy banders look handsome as heck.

Justin Timberlake, Chris Kirkpatrick, Lance Bass and Joey Fatone toasted Chasez in person, and prompted every girl over the age of 25 to dust off that ILUVJUSTIN playlist (downloaded illegally on Napster, natch).

What's even cuter about this whole reunion was the fact that Timberlake was the only one to Instagram a photo.  

"JC's 40th... And, if you don't know now you know...," the Tennessee native wrote.

Kirkpatrick and Fatone used Ye Old Twitter, and Bass was probably having too good a time to post anything.

The last time all five men were together was when Justin Timberlake accepted the MTV Video Vanguard Award.  They joined their bandmate briefly during his performance, something Chasex told Ryan Seacrest felt just like old times.

"Essentially everybody has remained the same," he explained.

"And again, we all see each other at different times, working on different things, but this is the first time that we had a rehearsal together in over 10 years.

"So everybody's going, 'Can we go through this slowly one more time?' That part was pretty funny.

"Everything is memory, muscle memory, and everything started to click," Chazed added.  "And before you know it we were good to go."

Don't expect a reunion like 98 Degrees or Backstreet Boys, though.  Once everyone split in the early 2000s, there was no going back.

Timberlake told Oprah Winfrey in 2014 that for him, being a solo artist was all he ever wanted.

"I would wake up every morning feeling this more and more of an urge to step out on my own," Timberlake revealed on Oprah's Master Class.

Timberlake knew full well that leaving the group at the height of its popularity was a huge risk.

"'Why wouldn't you ride this out?'" Timberlake would imagine others saying. "'You're the biggest group in the world. Why would you walk away from this?"
