Singer Lance Bass has made it clear ‘N Sync’s reunion on Sunday at the MTV Video Music Awards was a one-off treat for fans.
The former boy band members briefly reunited to perform snippets their hit songs Girlfriend and Bye Bye Bye as part of band leader Justin Timberlake’s set before he was honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, and, although the old friends enjoyed their time back together on the stage, Bass insists it was a one-time event.
He says, “We got nothing planned. Who knows what will happen when he’s off tour, but it’s simply not part of the conversation right now. We just focused on that one performance. If we did anything like that, I think we would come up with something real special where we could actually call it The Reunion.”
Bass also explains how the group was able to get to the middle stage at the Barclays Center for the VMAs ‘surprise’ without being noticed.
He continues, “We had to perform in the middle of the arena so there was no way of getting us out there without being seen. So they dressed us in big old hoodies to pretend we were the stage hands. So we would push out the stage and do all the stage hand stuff until we got to the area and hid out beneath a staircase. That was my favorite part.”
