The decade's twin titans, Whitney Huston and Mariah Carey, sat the night out, but the belting style they helped popularize was everywhere.

'NSYNC fans, your wish may be granted.
Ten long years after the popular boy band said "Bye Bye Bye" to their adoring, often screaming admirers, all five members of the bubblegum pop group Rolling Stone once called "the biggest band in the world" are reportedly set to take the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn on Sunday, according to various news sources.
Lance Bass, J.C. Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick are all scheduled to perform alongside the band's breakout mega-star – Justin Timberlake – at the awards show in Brooklyn's Barclays Center.
Timberlake, 32, is scheduled to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award during the evening. He also leads in overall nominations, alongside Macklemore & Ryan Lewis: six.

Just when you thought the Backstreet Boys couldn't get any cuter!
While on break from touring in China on Thursday, the reunited boy band – members Nick Carter, Brian Littrell, Kevin Richardson, Howie Dorough and A.J. McLean – made nice with a group of panda cubs during a visit to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in the country's Sichuan province.
Judging from the photo, we're not sure which quintet had the better time: While each guy happily cradled his furry buddy, the little ones gleefully kicked back, too, relaxing and indulging in delicious drinks.
