Another year around the sun! In honour of JC Hunt, her former bandmate shared a nostalgic birthday tribute. Justin timberlake posted several flashbacks to his “brother” from his’ NSync days via his Instagram Story.
Timberlake, 40, posted the snaps on Sunday, August 8, along with the caption: “Happy birthday to my brother @jcchasezofficial. We have come a long way.
In the first photo, the baby-faced “SexyBack” singer wears an oversized white t-shirt and a back-facing Nike cap. For his part, Chasez, 45, dons a matching shirt and olive hat.
the Palmer star expanded on her point in another slide, writing “Case Example …” next to two more photos of the friends. In one, Timberlake and the blonde-haired Chasez make awkward faces, and in the other, they both sport messy hairstyles.
Timberlake and Chasez first met in 1993 on The brand new Mickey Mouse club before joining ‘NSync. The group, which rose to popularity in 1995, also included Bass Lance, Joey fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick. The five Grammy nominees last gathered in 2018 for their Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony, though Fatone, 44, has since been hungry for a reunion.
“I can’t speak for anyone else, but for me it would be fun,” said the Dancing with the stars alum said Us weekly in May. “Why not? I mean, let’s be real here. It wasn’t broken. Everyone kind of broke up to do their own thing and now we’ve been doing our own thing and still doing our own thing, but you know what, I think it would be kinda fun to do something like that and get back together.
Fatone added at the time, “What’s wrong with that going to happen? Oh my God, we’re not getting number 1 on the charts. Oh damn. We already did. It’s okay. For me, it would be more or less performing and having fun with my brothers.
Previously, the ’90s band also reunited at Coachella with Ariana Grande in April 2019 – without the crooner “Mirrors” – and all together at the MTV Music Video Awards in August 2013.
During the awards show, Timberlake performed a mix of his solo hits after winning the Video Vanguard Award that night. Then the rest of the band joined him on stage to perform an upbeat rendition of “Bye, Bye, Bye” that had the whole arena on its feet.
After the performance, the Tennessee native thanked his band mates in his acceptance speech. “Above all, I must [this award] to those four guys up there. Above all, I’ll share it – I’ll keep it at home though. “
