This is really sad to hear.

But we've yet to hear confirmation from either MTV or any of the boys! Does that mean it's NOT happening? Or that they're trying to put the cat back in the bag?
When Lance Bass was asked about it, he said he thinks he knows the origin of the speculation. He said:
"Justin Timberlake is getting the Michael Jackson Vanguard Award this Sunday at the awards, so of course people are automatically going to think we’re going to be there performing, but this is exactly how it happened and I knew these rumors were going to fly."
Rumors?? So it's not really happening?!
"It’s amazing to see the reaction out there on Twitter and social media [and] how many people are supporting *NSYNC."
Hey, if that isn't a reason to make these "rumors" a reality, we don't know what is!
