(CBS NEWS) Is it gonna be *NSYNC?
Anticipation is building for Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, as we wait to find out if the members of the boy band will team up for a reunion performance.
The New York Post's Page Six cited sources as saying that Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, Lance Bass and JC Chasez would join Justin Timberlake onstage at the event, set to take place at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
So far, MTV has yet to address the reports, but Bass commented on the report during an interview on Sirius/XM, saying that a reunion "would be an amazing, amazing time."
"Justin Timberlake is getting the Michael Jackson [Video] Vanguard Award this Sunday at the awards, so of course people are automatically going to think we're going to be there performing, but this is exactly how it happened and I knew these rumors were going to fly," he said.
Bass also said he thinks that speculation started after he, along with Fatone and Kirkpatrick, flew to Miami to see Timberlake's show with Jay Z last Friday.
Bass had posted a photo on Instagram from the gig with the guys.
"I think that's what started the rumor that there's going to be this big reunion with *NSYNC...It's amazing to see the reaction out there on Twitter and social media of how many people are supporting *NSYNC," he said. "It's so nice to see because when we ended things 10 years ago, there was no social media, there was no Twitter fans...but it's so cute to see how many people are supporting it, and *NSYNC was even trending."
What we do know is that Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Kanye West, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Drake Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke will all perform at this year's VMAs.
The band went on hiatus in 2002 and last performed on television together at the 2003 Grammy Awards.
