Following NSYNC's triumphant Justin Timberlake on stage at the bash, with JC now telling Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show that the performance was all about honouring JT's success.
He told Seacrest: "It was just about five guys who were great friends, who spent 10 or 15 years together touring, and we wanted to give that back to our fans, but we were there mainly to support Justin.
"Literally just a few days ago, Justin gave me a buzz and he pretty much said, 'Hey man, listen, I'm getting this award and they've given me a pile of time to perform, and we started our careers at MTV and I think we should get the band back together'."
JC went on to claim that he felt like "no time had passed" since NSYNC split over ten years ago, adding: "It really was about [Justin], and all that he's accomplished.
"He wanted to acknowledge that part of his career, and so we all decided to do it."
Timberlake went on receive four Moonmen - including the coveted Michael Jackson Vanguard gong.
