‘Nsync was one of the biggest groups in boy band history. They dominated the ‘90s and early 2000s with their catchy pop songs and their well choreographed dance sequences. Since 2002, they haven’t released a thing and they have reportedly broken up. The only former member that we hear about now is Justin Timberlake, the group’s breakout star. Since they were such a big deal for so long, here are 10 things you didn’t know about ‘Nysnc:

10. Forming the Band

Chris Kirkpatrick was the first member to be recruited for ‘Nsync. He had missed the cut for the Backstreet Boys, so he met with Lou Pearlman in 1995 to talk about forming another group. Pearlman agreed to finance the group as long as Kirkpatrick found the other members. Joey Fatone was the next one to join. He and Kirkpatrick met while working at Universal Studios. Pearlman found a tape of Justin Timberlake from his Mickey Mouse Club days and he soon joined too. Timerblake recommended his friend JC Chasez, who also was also a cast member on The Mickey Mouse Club. Timberlake’s vocal coach was the one who recommended Lance Bass, who was the last to join the group.
