JC Chasez rules out 'N Sync tour following VMAs performance

Singer says boyband's performance was just a one-off

JC Chasez rules out 'N Sync tour following VMAs performance
'N Sync singer JC Chasez has ruled out the possibility of a tour after the boyband reunited for a performance at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in New York last night (August 25).

After playing a 15-minute greatest hits medley with snippets of singles 'Take Back The Night', 'SexyBack', 'Like I Love You', 'My Love', 'Cry Me A River', 'Señiorita' and 'Rock Your Body', Justin Timberlake was joined by his former bandmates Chasez, Lance Bass, Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone for snippets of 'N Sync hits 'Pop', 'Girlfriend' and 'Bye Bye Bye'.

However, speaking on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show, Chasez said the reunion was only a one-off. "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," he said.

"Literally just a few days ago, Justin gave me a buzz and he pretty much said, 'Hey man, listen, I'm getting this award and they've given me a pile of time to perform, and we started our careers at MTV and I think we should get the band back together'."

The singer added that the evening's performance had been more about Timberlake than their old band, stating: "It really was about [Justin], and all that he's accomplished. He wanted to acknowledge that part of his career, and so we all decided to do it."

'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.

The singer took home the biggest 'Moonman' prize at last night's VMAs, the Video Of The Year award, as well as the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, which he pledged to share with his former bandmates. "Half of the Moonmen I've ever won, I won with those four guys right there," he said, pointing to his bandmates. "I'm going to share this with them."
