(NEW YORK) — Doesn’t ‘NSYNC know that all it takes is one tweet to ignite a social media storm?
The boy band took to Twitter from a newly minted, verified account Saturday, just one day before the MTV Video Music Awards, sending a message to fans who are hoping Sunday night means the five men will reunite onstage in Brooklyn, N.Y., to make sweet music more than 10 years after they released their last album together.
“Mic check, mic check one.. two … is this thing on?!” the band tweeted, which has since been retweeted more than 26,000 times.
The Twitter account also boasts a link to the band’s website, which shows pictures of the five guys all grown up, as well as links to their personal Twitter handles and official websites.
We do know Justin Timberlake will be there. He is set to receive the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award from pal Jimmy Fallon.
While the rest of the band presumably tried to play it cool, Lance Bass had this to say about the cryptic tweet.
“Yes, @NSYNC is the official twitter. Happy weekend everyone!” he wrote.
Does this mean the reunion rumors are true? Guess we’ll have to tune in and see. The show airs live Sunday at 9 p.m.
