Possible 'N Sync reunion overshadows nominees at Video Music Awards
NEW YORK (REUTERS) - MTV's annual Video Music Awards, to be presented on Sunday, are known for delivering surprises, and rumors of an on-stage reunion of 1990s boy band'N Sync are overshadowing who will take the top honours.
In the past week, media outlets and social media platforms have been full of talk of a reunion of 'N Sync, which has not performed since 2002.
The band has fuelled the fire by setting up its first official Twitter account over the weekend with the tweet "Mic check, mic check one.. two... is this thing on?!" But individual band members Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick have stayed quiet.
Ms Amy Doyle, an executive producer of the VMAs, did not comment directly, but said the show "could include artists who represent VMAs-past." MTV's VMAs do not play a part in determining the music industry's top accolades, the Grammys, but the youth-orientated network's annual event can be counted on to deliver the unexpected.
