Talk about embarrassing. Want to know how important NSync was musically to Justin Timberlake's life? About 30 seconds. That is about how long the anticipated reunion of NSync lasted lasted night during the VMA's. Justin Timberlake must have called Beyonce for some advice about how to deal with unwanted reunions that take away from 15 minutes of the cameras focusing on you. During the Super Bowl halftime show, Beyonce wanted those billions of people focused on her, and not rumors of some reunion of a group she will erase from her official history and soon as she can buy Wikipedia. She brought out Michelle and Kelly for about thirty seconds and then went back to being the most important one.
I'm not sure if Justin's 15 minute performance last night was the longest in VMA history, but it had to be close. It was approaching needing to be interrupted by a commercial territory. Out of that whole 15 minutes, he gave a whopping 30 seconds to NSynce, much of which seemed to involve Chris Kirkpatrick trying to find a hole to jump back down that worked so Justin could have the stage to himself again.
