NSYNC Get Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

by Newsdesk

*NSYNC fans camped out overnight in Hollywood to urge the boy band to reunite at their Walk of Fame induction on Monday (April 30).

All five members of the group made it to the ceremony, which shut down Hollywood Boulevard, as thousands of screaming and chanting fans turned out to see J.C. Chasez, Justin Timberlake, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass, and Chris Kirkpatrick.

Before they unveiled the Walk of Fame's 2,636th star, Ellen DeGeneres stepped up to roast the bandmates, joking, "The band is made up of the cute one, the bad boy, the sensitive one, the sexy one - and Joey", before adding, "Your music is the the soundtrack to an entire generation".

As the bandmates' wives, husband, kids, and parents watched on, the quintet took it in turns to speak, with Chasez thanking his pals for "making my dreams come true", and Kirkpatrick delivering a special message to his young son Nash, adding, "You've got some of the best uncles on the planet here."

Bass then paid tribute to his "gorgeous" husband Michael and thanked his "LGBT brothers and sisters, who have embraced me" after confessing he felt bad about having to keep his sexuality a secret during *NSYNC's heyday because "I didn't want to jeopardise the careers of these guys."

Fatone paid tribute to the fans who swarmed Hollywood Boulevard, thanking them for coming even though the band hasn't had an album out "in years", and Timberlake rounded off the band speeches by stating, "These four guys mean so much to me", before paying tribute to his wife Jessica Biel and the bands' parents, calling them "the real MVPs" and recalling he was a minor when the boy band took off.

He ended by offering the screaming fans hope by adding, "I can't wait to see what the future holds", prompting the army of fans to start chanting, "Reunite".

J.C. then grabbed the mic one more time as his bandmates gathered around their new star, and joked, "By the way, in case any of you didn't know, tomorrow it's gonna be May." He sang the last four words replacing the group's lyric from the hit It's Gonna Me Me.
