TIMELINE

  • 'N Sync'N Sync consists of Joshua Chasez ("J.C."), Lance Bass ("Lansten"), Joseph Fatone, Jr. ("Joey"), Christopher Kirkpatrick ("Chris"), and Justin Timberlake ("Justin") and formed in Florida. The boys came together as a band after Chasez and Timberlake (who knew each other from the Disney Channel's Mickey Mouse Club), met up with Kirkpatrick and eventually Fatone and decided to form a band. Clinton rounded out the 5-some to fill the need for bass vocals. The name 'N Sync came from the synthesis of last letters from their nicknames: Justin - Chris - Joey - Lansten - JC.
