Lance Bass has responded to reports suggesting his former boy band ‘NSYNC is preparing to perform reunite at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.

The rumor mill was sent into overdrive on Tuesday with speculation that the “Bye Bye Bye” hitmakers will perform together at the ceremony in Brooklyn, New York when former bandmember Justin Timberlake receives the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.

Bass weighed in on the gossip during his radio show, but he stopped short of confirming whether or not the comeback performance will take place.

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.”

Bass admitted he feels partially responsible for sparking the excitement by posting a photo of himself with bandmates Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick on Instagram.

He adds, “I think that’s what started the rumour that there’s going to be this big reunion with ‘NSYNC. It’s amazing to see the reaction out there on Twitter and social media (and) how many people are supporting ‘NSYNC. It’s so nice to see because when we ended things (over) 10 years ago, there was no social media, there was no Twitter, but it’s so cute to see how many people are supporting (us) and ‘NSYNC was even trending.”
