Lance Bass: Justin Timberlake's Too Busy for an *NSYNC Reunion

Not suprisingly, Timberlake just might be too cool for a boy-band reunion -- but could the band make a comeback without him?

Beloved boy bands New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys have teamed up to form a nostalgic heartthrob super group called NKOTBSB. But after their debut performance at the American Music Awards earlier this week, fans of another pop group are getting a little jealous.

So, when can we expect an *NSYNC comeback?

Unfortunately, fans of the rival pop group shouldn't be holding their breath for a tour. *NSYNC's own Lance Bass told E! Online backstage at the AMAs, "I don't see that coming anytime soon." The biggest deterring factor: his former band mate, mega-star Justin Timberlake.

"Justin's very busy with his acting career right now, so I think it's going to be quite a while before we even think about doing anything," Bass said. This year alone, Timberlake has starred in two films, including the critically acclaimed The Social Network, which earned him early Oscar buzz

Okay, so Timberlake may be a little too cool for a boy-band reunion. But that doesn't mean Bass and his fellow *NSYNC-ers (JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone) couldn't go it alone! "I love being on the stage," Bass told E! "So yeah, anytime the guys would want to do an album, I'm in!"

While fans eagerly wait to see if another *NSYNC tour or album ever happens (or a new Timberlake solo album, for that matter), Rolling Stone had their own ideas on how the group could still have their own comeback, despite the circumstances. BSB is going on with their tour, even with founding member Kevin Richardson opting out. But, could a non-Timberlake *NSYNC tour work? 

RS theorizes that the guys could be successful on their own. In fact, they may even be able to change Timberlake's mind. "Maybe when he sees how easily his former group starts raking in money he'll be down for a handful of shows," the magazine said.

While the band would surely take a hit from the absence of their most swoon-worthy member, we're guessing there are still a few die-hard fans who would pay big bucks to hear "Bye Bye Bye" one more time.
