*NSYNC Reunite For JC Chasez's 40th Birthday

It's been a long, painful 14 years since *NSYNC said 'Bye Bye Bye' in 2002. In a year where everything from the 90s is making a comeback to cash in on our sweet, sweet nostalgia, *NSYNC has been noticeably absent. So many other boy bands from that era have announced some sort of reunion in the past year, from Backstreet Boys to 98 Degrees, and even O-Town. Meanwhile *NSYNC fans have had to make do with an all-too-brief 90 second performance at the 2013 VMA's. On Monday, Justin Timberlake managed to rekindle the dreams of 90s kids with one of the most exciting Instagram posts ever made.

Why yes, that is in fact all five members of *NSYNC in a single photo that WASN'T taken over a decade ago. Justin Timberlake, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick got back together with JC Chasez last night to celebrate his 40th birthday. And yes, I did say 4-0, so let's all take a moment to feel absolutely ancient.

Understandably, any prospect of an *NSYNC reunion has the Internet losing its collective mind.


And obviously, the photo is trending everywhere.


While Justin's caption "And, if you don't know, now you know..." has got everyone hoping that they'll give us the reunion tour we've all been wanting, the chances of that happening any time soon are pretty slim. For now, at least, we have that photo to give us life and keep the dream alive. C'mon *NSYNC, don't you know we want you back?

The True Story Behind "The Sound of Music" Is Even Better Than Whiskers On Kittens

When Julie Andrews brought the sound of music down from the mountains and into our hearts, she brought with it a love for the real-life von Trapp family, who the story was based on. The movie follows the autobiography of the real Maria von Trapp, who was a nun that became a part of an Austrian family before the Nazi occupation in World War II. The film accurately portrays a lot about their lives and demeanor, but in Maria's published memoirs (that the film was based on) it is easy to see how much becomes simple Hollywood figment. Here are
