The boy band’s co-lead JC Chasez got the rumor mill turning when he tweeted out a mic check, a tweet that Ariana Grande quoted and seemingly confirmed.
Lance Bass also appears to be involved with the potential reunion, after he tweeted out a typed out vocal run from *NSYNC’s “Here We Go.”
A collab between the band and Grande isn’t entirely out of left field. Grande lifts a section of the boy band's 2000 track “It Makes Me Ill” on her hit “Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored.”
Grande has no problem borrowing a line or two. She also nabbed an intro from Rodgers & Hammerstein for her track "7 Rings" (and was widely accused of stealing a flow from Soulja Boy and an aesthetic from 2 Chainz). In spite of the massive success of that track, Grande is reaping very little. The songwriting duo behind the musical number "My Favorite Things" are owed 90 percent of the royalties from that track. Still, it clearly hasn't put Grande off of sharing the spotlight, and she might just cede it to *NSYNC on Sunday.
Grande will close out the first weekend of Coachella with a performance on the main stage at 10:30 p.m. PT. You can watch here to see if Grande and *NSYNC come through in the clutch.
