But it was over almost as soon as it began. Not unlike Destiny's Child's reunion at the Super Bowl, in which Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland seemingly had their mics turned low to allow Bey to shine, Timberlake kept his four former bandmates onstage for a hot minute. It was almost too fast to catch what they were wearing -- almost.
Below, see the toned-down gear JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, Lance Bass and Timberlake wore for their comeback... as compared to their past MTV VMA looks. Alas, there were no cornrows. No bandanas. No double denim. Can we all agree this year's outfits were a disappointment?
Bye, bye, bye...
