Of course, all of this nostalgia has fans making their ultimate Christmas wish: for a full-fledged ‘NSYNC reunion in the new year. And Bass tells Yahoo Entertainment he’s all for it. “Look, you don’t have to ask me. I’m in! I would love to do more ‘NSYNC music. … I mean, it would be a choice. If there’s any time, it would be right now.”
So… how can we make this happen? “I don’t know,” says Bass. “I mean, it’s hard to get all five of us to agree to do anything. We’re such boys, and the communication is horrible. We’re great on text about sending silly stupid things, but when it comes down to business, it’s really hard for us to make a decision on stuff. And I mean, Justin is killing it right now. He hasn’t had a break since we recorded last.” Of course, the crazed reaction at Coachella proved that fans really want this reunion even if Timberlake isn’t on board. “It was encouraging, definitely, to see that,” says Bass. “And especially for JC [Chasez]. Because JC stayed out of the limelight a good bit since ‘NSYNC. He’s a studio cat; he loves writing for other artists. It was nice to remind people how talented he was, you know? I mean, the No. 1 trending thing after Coachella was ‘JC Chasez.’ Holy moly. His voice is one of the best male vocalists I’ve ever heard.”
Nothing gets you into the holiday spirit like decorations, but what about Outrageousholiday decorations? E! News can exclusively reveal those will be on display in HGTV’s new special, Outrageous Holiday Houses, hosted by Lance Bass.
“HGTV is stepping into Christmas with some of the most outrageous displays you’ve ever seen,” Bass said in a statement. “We’re going to meet the most dedicated and obsessed Christmas fans around. As a huge Christmas fan, I am excited to host this show!”
On Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 28, Bass will take viewers on a coast-to-coast tour of some of the most spectacular holiday displays in North America. Plus, he’ll spotlight festive towns like North Pole, Alaska and Santa Claus, Indiana.
Lance has been continuing his gig of co-hosting the Pop 2000 tour around the United States. (Which, if you have not yet checked out and Lance is coming to your area, GO! It’s an amazing show… here I am with Lance at the first Pop2000 date!)
Continuing with tradition, Lance takes the stage with the lovely guys of O-Town for a performance. This last weekends was electric and concluded with chants of “Bring back *NSYNC!”
Check the performance out below as well as clips from Lance’s Q&A with fans before the show. (Original credits go to the owners, thanks to the GWYA Podcast for posting them to their IG page!)
“It’s great and one day hopefully we will be able to figure something out,” he continues. “It’s something we’re not talking about right now, but you never know. Since Coachella there’s been some really crazy offers come our way and it’s the first time people have given us actual offers, so we would be dumb not to talk about it.”
Bass notes that he and his bandmates (JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick) are “slow,” so while there’s a very real possibility of the four planning future projects, it’s unlikely to be within the next year. “You know how slow we are, so I don’t see this happening anytime soon,” he says. “But hopefully soon we’ll be able to discuss it and see what happens.”
