This was a performance not to be forgotten.

NSYNC was an American boy band formed in Orlando, Florida, in 1995. The group consisted of Lance Bass, Justin Timberlake, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, and JC Chasez. With their catchy tunes and synchronized dance moves, they quickly became one of the biggest bands of the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Now, two members of this prominent group have reunited for an epic revival of one of their most popular songs.

EPCOT Secures Incredible Talent for 2023 Festivities

In the early 2000s, NSYNC’s success was impossible to ignore. Songs like “Bye Bye Bye” and “It Gonna be me” earned international acclaim for this group. Unfortunately, the group separated many years ago and is now focussing on their individual careers.

This year, Joey Fatone returned to EPCOT’s Eat to the Beat Concert Series. His prior performances have been extremely popular amongst fans, and for many, it was thrilling to see his return.

The event takes place in tandem with the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, which is presented by CORKCICLE. Every summer, Guests can sip, eat, and groove at these incredible festivals.

A Reunion to Remember

When Joey Fatone was announced to be performing in the series from August 18-21, his performance was listed as “Joey Fatone & Friends.” Immediately, fans were hoping that this could be an NSYNC reunion. Thankfully, the dreams of fans came true when Joey brought out his ex-bandmate Lance Bass came out to join him in a performance on August 19. The duo danced and sang along to their hit single, “Bye Bye Bye” and completely blew the crowd away.

The performance was made better due to the fact that the duo was also rocking ‘Minnie Mouse’ ears during it. Spontaneous surprises like this are part of the reasons that fans love Eat with the Beat every year.
