Boy bands like *NSYNC, Backstreet Boys, and 98 Degrees have certainly made their mark on the MTV Video Music Awards, and rumors of an *NSYNC reunion [1] at this weekend's show have the Internet buzzing. With Justin Timberlake [2] set to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award on Sunday, it's been reported that his former bandmates may be joining him for a performance.
