Still don't believe that 'N Sync is getting back together at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards?
Any doubts were pretty much erased Saturday night when the boy band launched a verified Twitter account. The account had over 50,000 followers in its first five hours active on the site.
There's been one tweet so far, which mysteriously read:
Band members Joey Fatone, Lance Bass, Chris Kirkpatrick, and J.C. Chasez are expected to reunite with breakout superstar Justin Timberlake, who's receiving the prestigious VMA Vanguard Award on Sunday.
Justin shared a photo of his own on Instagram Saturday afternoon, showing off his kicks, with the caption "Counting down to the VMAs."
Us Weekly reports that the group "is expected to perform" its biggest hit, "Bye Bye Bye" and do a video medley before Justin performs his new single and gets his award. NBC late-night host Jimmy Fallon will present Justin with his award.
There have been several signs that the reunion was happening. First off, all of the band members (sans J.C.) met up in Miami last Friday to catch Justin's show with Jay Z.Lance was very coy on his SiriusXM radio show earlier this week, never denying that the reunion was happening. TMZ hounded Joey Fatone at the airport in NYC, but didn't elicit any firm info. And Radar Online went so far as to try to milk an answer out of Joey's dad.
Remember last year's VMAs? Take a look back at our red carpet gallery from the 2012 awards show.
UPDATE: On Sunday early afternoon, Lance posted this photo (it's so on!):
