They said Bye, Bye, Bye to their boy band days years ago, but on Sunday night, 'NSYNC took center stage – albeit briefly – at the MTV Video Music Awards and it was just like old times.
Justin Timberlake accepted his Michael Jackson Video Vanguard award (prior to taking home the night's top prize for video of the year), telling the packed crowd, "I don't deserve this award, but I'm not going to give it back," after he performed a bunch of singles, including "SexyBack," "Suit & Tie," "Mirrors" and "Cry Me a River."
