Consisting of Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and Lance Bass, the band was first formed in 1995, and quickly rose to become of the most globally recognized music acts from the 1990s. During their career, they received some of the most coveted awards in music history, including the MTV Music Award for Best Pop Video, the Billboard Music Award for Top 40 Artist of the Year, and the Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Music Group.
Ana Martinez, the producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies, stated, “*NSYNC fans have been patiently waiting for their favorite group to set a date and we are announcing the date earlier than usual so they can start making plans to visit Hollywood and see *NSYNC.”
In anticipation for the ceremony, fans arrived in masses, camping out in hopes of sighting a member from their favorite band. Additionally, the band announced a ‘Dirty Pop’ Up shop, which celebrates the group’s twenty year history with apparel, accessories, and photos from their journey. The shop will be open on Hollywood Boulevard until Monday, April 30.
