Ellen DeGeneres is well known for surprising her audiences on a regular basis. You simply never know what is going to happen when you stop by for a visit. In most instances, she is the one who will be doing the surprising. That is why it is good to see the tables being turned from time to time. For once, she was not the one who was already in the know and it was a beautiful thing to see.
This past April, legendary boy band received a major honor when they were given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. All five of the original band members were on hand that day to celebrate this prestigious achievement. Justin Timberlake was also slated to visit the Ellen Show that day. When he did, he had a few friends in tow that she was not expecting to see.
That’s right. Justin decided that he was going to brighten up Ellen’s day even further by bringing the old band to her set for a special surprise performance. When Justin first starts to tell her about the surprise that he had for her at the ceremony that he forgot to give her, she is clearly stunned. It is rare to Ellen on the other side of the fence as far as this sort of confusion is concerned.
While Ellen does not seem to know what is about to happen at first, she gamely admits that she does enjoy a nice gift from time to time. Once the studio audience catches a glimpse of the boy band, they are sent into hysterics. After all, is there a person alive who doesn’t love and appreciate *NYSNC? These men have not aged a single day.
They have not lost their performance chops either. JC was also quick to let the audience know that the group is still very close with one another. Yes, there is an *NSYNC group chat and no, you cannot join. Ellen was not about to let them off the hook for some of their ’90s influenced fashions, though. Thankfully, their taste in fashion has actually gotten much better.
No more turtlenecks or sports jerseys for these guys. As for those who are looking to catch an *NYSNC performance in the not so distant future? They will soon have their chance to do so. The band was quick to let Ellen know that this appearance was not a one off. These are tentative plans at the moment so be sure to stay tuned for further updates.
