The whole music biz is a buzz for MTV’s Video Music Awards that are approaching this weekend. Perhaps the biggest reason for this buzz is because of Justin Timberlake receiving the network’s coveted lifetime achievement award called the “Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.” Justin, along with the 26 other past recipients are awarded the honor because of the contributions to MTV culture.
Justin is expected to do a performance medley of his hits, which to the delight of fans, is rumored to include the reuniting of him and his former boy band, *NSYNC. Excitement over this possibility is so great that within a day and a half’s time it was escalated to becoming the hottest news item of the week. Neither MTV nor Justin have commented on the matter, but *NSYNC member Lance Bass acknowledged the news from an insider’s perspective on his Sirius XM radio show on Wednesday.
