*NSYNC, Lil' Kim, and Busta Rhymes? Booya! This year's MTV VMAs felt like a time machine that took us all the way back to the '90s — and we didn't hate it. There was the boy band reunion that basically took over the Internet, members of TLC made an appearance, and Lil' Kim took the stage to present an award. Translation: if you loved the '90s, then this year's VMAs show was basically "the bomb." Here's why:

Reactions varied on their time in the spotlight, with some fans wishing there was more *NSYNC action during the show, but thanks to GIFs of their performance, we can all relive the magic over and over (and over) again.
"T-Boz" and "Chilli" Showed Up
TLC's Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas took the stage to introduce Drake's performance at the VMAs, with T-Boz sporting the same sort of midriff-baring outfit she wore to award shows back in the day. Although we didn't get to see them perform, fans will have a chance to see more of TLC when their VH1 original film CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story comes out in October.
