Yesterday, the former members of NSync gathered to celebrate JC Chasez’s 40th birthday but really just to be get an autograph from superstar Justin Timberlake. According to the Facebook invitation sent by Chasez over 6 months ago, Timberlake had responded “Will Attend,” prompting the other former boy band members to giggle with excitement over the prospect of being in the same room with the 9-time Grammy award winner.
Birthday celebrations began with a quiet dinner in LA, where Joey, Chris, Lance and birthday boy JC all took turns sitting next to Timberlake and posing for selfies. “I can’t believe he’s here! Look, I have goosebumps!” said Chris Kirkpatrick while pulling up the sleeve of his American Eagle flannel.
Timberlake was apparently “totally down to earth” and “acted like we were old friends,” according to Lance and Joey, who waited for Timberlake to climb into his black Escalade before going over every moment of the night.
“Remember when he was leaving and he looked back and went, ‘Bye, Bye, Bye!’?? That was so cool cuz that was his song!” exclaimed JC. “Or, wait…was that our song?”
