Justin Timberlake is reportedly planning to reunite his former band 'N Sync at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) this Sunday (August 25).

The singer will receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the event and is also confirmed to perform. According to the New York Post's Page Six, Timberlake's former bandmates JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick will join him onstage during the performance. All four of them were apparently spotted in the VIP section at Miami's Sun Life Arena during Timberlake's joint gig with Jay-Z on Friday night (August 16).

'N Sync last performed as a band at a charity event in 2004 and their third and final studio album, 'Celebrity', came out in 2001. Since then, Timberlake has gone on to become one of the world's biggest male solo artists.

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga is confirmed to be opening this year's MTV VMAs with the first live performance of her new single 'Applause'. Kanye West, Katy Perry, Robin Thicke, Bruno Mars and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are all set to perform too.

As well as receiving the special Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, Timberlake will compete for six other trophies at Sunday's awards ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are also nominated in six categories, while Drake, Calvin Harris, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Pink are all up for multiple prizes too.

The MTV VMAs were launched in 1984 and Madonna has been the biggest winner over the years, collecting 20 "Moonman" gongs between 1986 and 1999. Timberlake has already won seven VMAs as a solo artist and another seven as a member of 'N Sync.
