Suddenly, there they were — all five members of *NSYNC onstage for the first time in over 10 years, singing "Bye Bye Bye" complete with the famous choreography. But just as quickly as Beyoncé dismissed her Destiny's Child sisters from the Super Bowl halftime stage, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick and JC Chasez were dismissed as well.
