“That award validated our hard work,” Kirkpatrick added.

In 2013, Chasez, Bass, Kirkpatrick and Fatone joined Timberlake for a brief performance that was part of a larger medley in honor of the “Cry Me a River” singer, who was the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award recipient that year.

Shakira received the prestigious honor — named after the late King of Pop — at this year’s ceremony.

Prior to Tuesday’s VMAs, several members of *NSYNC had been spotted around New York City, fueling speculation that they were in town for the show.

Timberlake, 42, was spotted at the US Open in Flushing, NY, on Sunday, Bass, 44, posted a photo of himself out to dinner in Manhattan on Monday night via Instagram and Fatone, 46, posed for a picture with fans in the Big Apple on Monday morning.

Meanwhile, Kirkpatrick, 51, shared a photo on Instagram of a New York City fire truck to commemorate the Sept. 11 attacks, although it is unclear whether he took the pic himself; and lastly, Chasez’s manager shared a video via his Instagram Story of the “Some Girls” singer, 47, sitting on a private plane Monday.

In August, a source teased to “Entertainment Tonight” that *NSYNC was planning a musical comeback.

The insider claimed at the time that all five group members were “expected to have surprise roles” in the upcoming animated musical comedy “Trolls Band Together,” due out Nov. 17.

Several people also posted on Twitter that there was a recent casting call asking for “real *NSYNC fans” who were willing to dance and shoot the “ultimate fan experience.”

The last time *NSYNC released a single was in 2002 with “Girlfriend” off their third and final studio album, “Celebrity.”

Chasez and Timberlake then went on to have solo careers, with the latter seeing more chart-topping success with hits like “SexyBack” and “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” from the first “Trolls” movie.

*NSYNC has made a handful of joint appearances over the years, including the 2013 VMAs and when they received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2018.

A year later, *NSYNC — minus Timberlake — took the stage at Coachella with Ariana Grande replacing the “Friends with Benefits” star for a rendition of “Tearin’ Up My Heart.”
