Boy Band Tribute

Justin Timberlake, living the dream of quite a successful musical comeback after being out of the music scene for more than six years, is set to be awarded the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award (aka the Lifetime Achievement Award) at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday.

The award isn't what's getting the buzz, though.  The buzz is all about whether the popular boy band 'N Sync will reunite at the awards show.  Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens. With the major success of at least one artist from a group, the group is always remembered. Always. Earlier this year at the Super Bowl...There were rumors of a Destiny's Child reunion as Beyonce was the headliner and that rumor turned out to be true. Just sayin'.

In the meantime, let's have a look at some '90s boy bands in honor of the era that gave JT's career a jumpstart, because - why not?  It's Friday.

Back in the '90s...

'N Sync

Backstreet Boys

Boyz II Men

And a few boy bands of today...

The Wanted (performing today on GMA)

Emblem3 (from XFactor USA)

And one of my cousin's faves...

One Direction

No matter what, Boy Bands are a part of the music scene - yesterday, today, or tomorrow.  After all, what would music be without The Beatles???

So...What's your favorite boy band of all time?
Happy Friday!

While I am familiar with all the bands you mentioned, and the ones in the comments... I was never a pop/hip hop boy band fan. I was more a fan of the country boy bands.. LOL Rascal Flatts, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Montgomery Gentry, Lonestar, etc... Put the boys (ahem MEN) in some jeans, boots, and cowboy hats and I was just fine staring at them standing still behind the mic! :) hehe
