N’SYNC Did Their VMA Performance Get Scaled Down By Justin Timberlake

Were you just as excited as I was to see N’Sync reunite during the MTV VMA’s?  Honestly I waited for that moment the entire show and I really wasn’t disappointed. Sure, it could have been longer, but it was Justin Timberlake receiving the Video Vanguard award, not N’Sync. But it  seems that initially the N’Sync reunion performance was supposed to be longer but that JT himself trimmed it down, and maybe some of the band members weren’t too thrilled with that.

According to US Weekly a source said former N’Syncers JC Chasez, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and Lance Bass were initially upset by the shortened set;

“They were pushing for more,” the source says. “While he was thrilled they could come for him, he didn’t want the reunion to be the whole thing. They originally were told that it was going to be more of their old hits, not just Bye Bye Bye — but then Justin reworked it.”

“The guys wished it could have been more songs,” continues the insider. “He told them to trust him, he was going to make it great.”

I don’t know – I would have loved to have seen more but I was happy we got as much as we did!
