Before ‘N Sync even took the stage last night, there were a number of questions swirling focusing on whether or not the much-hyped reunion would be a special, one-off performance or a brilliant teaser for a future world tour. If crowd reaction was any indication of how the boys might do on the road, there is definitely more than enough interest , but even so, it looks like we’ll all have to be content with the two minute snippet we got last night.
Speaking during a radio interview with Johnny’s House XL on 106.7 FM, ‘N Sync member Chris Kirkpatrick raved about how much fun he had during last night’s performance, but he was also clear to point out he and the other guys were simply there to support Justin, not to lay the groundwork for actually getting back together.
Here’s an excerpt of his quote, as per TMZ…
”This was for Justin to get the Video Vanguard Award, and it was funny because all of us getting back together, we remembered what we like about each other and what we hate about each other. It was just a lot of fun.”
There has been much debate as to whether an actual ‘N Sync reunion would be a good idea, but the one thing everyone seems to agree on is last night’s performance was a lot of fun. It was fascinating to see the whole crew together, and it was strangely endearing to see all of them do the “Bye Bye Bye” dance one more time.

You know what’s wonderful about this whole thing too? It’s nice to see how genuinely happy all of the other guys seem to be for Justin. In their position, it would be easy to be a little bitter about how popular he wound up getting and all the money they could potentially make if they were still together, but instead, all involved seem to feel like they had a good run and just want each other to succeed.
Given everyone involved denied the reunion would even happen, it’s, of course, possible Kirkpatrick is simply blowing smoke here, but I really don’t think so. Timberlake has a ton of different projects going on, and all involved seemed to be relishing last night’s performance like it might be the last they do together. If so, job well done.
