Update, February 17, 3:15 p.m.: False alarm, guys. We're sorry.
We always appreciate the love and excitement from our fans unfortunately Lance’s comments to the press were taken out of context. (1 of 2)February 17, 2017
When there is real news from *NSYNC you will hear it from all of us. (2 of 2)February 17, 2017
Original story, February 17, 9:20 a.m.: If you've been dreaming of an *NSYNC reunion since the band went on "hiatus" in 2002, then you're in luck. Kind of. There's no reunion tour or album in the works, but the guys will all be in the same place in public. Later this year, the boy band will reunite to accept their star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Lance Bass confirmed to ET (opens in new tab).
The date for the big Walk of Fame event is still up in the air because apparently former pop stars are less good at scheduling than they are at choreographed dance numbers.
"We'll all be there! We just have to decide on a date. We're terrible at planning things," Bass said, adding, "We're five guys, so for us to make a decision about anything is really hard, so we just need to do it. So hopefully maybe around Christmas time. It'll be fun to see everybody again."
Sure, it's not new music, but we'll take what we can get. And, while a new *NSYNC single still doesn't seem like it's in the cards, 2017 will also see a special release from the guys—a vinyl edition of their 1998 holiday instant-classic, Home for Christmas. So go ahead and put that on your wish list now.
And just in case you're worried the reunion might be awkward or that these "scheduling issues" are a result of some weird feud, don't be: Bass confirmed that the guys are all still text-on-a-daily-basis close.
"We talk daily," he revealed. "All five of us."
Next *NSYNC wish list item: A book that's literally just all of their group texts in chronological order.
