Now can we start talking about a comeback tour?
More than 10 million viewers tuned into the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, thanks in no small part to the highly anticipated reunion of 'N Sync, who were part of a performance to honor member Justin Timberlake winning the Video Vanguard Award.
Viewership for the event was up 66 percent from last year's telecast. The ceremony also drew a 7.8 rating in the ages 12-34 demographic — making it cable's No. 1 entertainment telecast of the year thus far.
A day after reuniting with his bandmates for the first time in a decade, JC Chasez revealed how the 'N Sync reunion came together on On the Air with Ryan Seacrest. "It was just a matter of time. Everybody would ask us, 'When are you guys going to do something?' " Chasez said Monday. "First of all, it was the worst-kept secret ever, [but] Justin gave me a buzz and he said, 'Hey man, listen. I'm getting this award and they have given me a pile of time to perform. We started our careers at MTV, and I think we should get the band back together."
After so many years apart, Chasez admitted it took a bit for the five guys to re-learn their iconic dance moves. "Everyone was going, 'Can we go through this one more time slowly?'" Chasez said. "So that part was pretty funny."
Despite the overwhelming reaction to their performance, Chasez said not to expect a reunion tour anytime soon. "No," Chasez said. "It was just about five guys who were great friends who spent 10 or 15 years together touring and we ... wanted to give that back to our fans, but we were there mainly to support Justin."
