than today’s boy band. – I was thinking of all the bands
that my mom listens to. I was, like, okay,
we already did the Backstreet Boys. I know who they are.
We– they even reacted to me. – (Jayka) I love
how passionate they are. – (Kevin) We are very passionate.
– (Nick) We’re very overdramatic. – (Brian) You have to be passionate

– Oh, they’re puppets now. Okay! – I’ve heard this song before
for sure. – It’s so cute!

with that hip thrust. – Over-the-top dance moves,
you know, totally ’90s. – I still don’t know

– Respect! NSYNC was great. – I never planned
on listening to them, but I guess I’m glad
I got it out of the way. – You can appreciate it
in a slightly ironic and slightly unironic way
at the same time. – NSYNC is nothing
without Joey Fatone! He’s got that coolness about him. – (FBE) So, those were all songs
by the boy band NSYNC. – Yeah, I wouldn’t have guessed that. – NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys,
just main staples of the ’90s. – (FBE) So, we’re talking
about them today, because this year marks
the 20th anniversary of them forming all the way back in 1998.
– Oh, wow. I thought they were ’80s or ’70s. – (FBE) Before we talk
a little bit more about them, not too long ago, the teens
reacted to the Backstreet Boys, and we asked if they could
figure out each of their names by just looking at their faces.
And so, we’re gonna do the same with NSYNC.
– (laughs) Oh, no. – I think I’ll do better
than I did with the Backstreet Boys. – (FBE) So, there’s Chris, Joey,
Lance, JC, and of course, Justin. – Classic white boy names. – Let’s do this.
I think I’ll do all right. – (FBE) Here’s the first person.
Who’s this? – That is JC. – Possibly Joey? – What’s a good dreadlock name? Maybe that’s Lance.
– Yeah. Everyone’s Joey. – I can see him being a JC. – I wanna say
that’s either JC or Chris? I’ll say that’s JC. – JC. Really edgy name. – JC. I don’t know. (laughs)
– Maybe JC. – (FBE) Here’s the next person.
Who’s this? – He looks like a Chris.
– I’m gonna go with Chris. He looks like a Chris.
– Joey? – Is that Justin?
– His eyes scream Justin. I’m probably wrong already.
– He looks like a Lance. – That looks like Lance. – Let’s go with Lance,
because I really don’t know. – That’s Lance. That’s Lance. – (FBE) Next up. Who’s this?
I’m gonna go with Chris. – I’m getting either a Chris
or a Lance vibe. Oh, I have to go with Lance. – Oh crap. Okay.
He looks like a Chris. – Lance, ’cause I feel
like Lance is the type of name where you could dye your hair.
– Say that’s Chris. I know for a fact
you’re really disappointed in me, ’cause I’m getting
all of these wrong. – That’s Joey.
It’s all guessing at this point. – That’s Joey,
I know for sure. I hope. – That’s Joey.
He was on “Hannah Montana.” – That’s definitely Joey.
My main man, Joey. He’s the coolest guy
out of all of ’em. – (FBE) All right,
next up, who’s this? – That’s… Joey.
– That’s Justin. I don’t know why. – He’s gonna be the Lance.
The way he’s dressed maybe screams Lance. – Chris, because that’s
the last option I have besides Justin. – He’s a Joey character
for sure. – Joey. It was the last choice,
’cause I knew Justin was gonna be the fifth one.
– Joey. – There’s only room
for Chris and Justin, and I know that’s not Justin.
– He looks somewhat like Justin, but at the same time,
there’s so many members in this band that just look
like different versions of other members in the band,
that I’m not 100% sure. I’m gonna go with JC. – (FBE) And here’s
picture number five. – What’s my last one? Joey?
Okay, yeah, he’s– this works. – Joey, my main man, Fatone!
– I guess that’s JC. – My homeboy Justin.
– Who dat? That’s Justin. – That’s Justin.
– That one has to be Justin. – Yeah, that one’s Justin.
Okay, that’s one! – (FBE) First up, this was Chris. (buzzer)
– Aww. Okay. Wrong. – He doesn’t like a Chris!
– (giggles) We’re not doing so well. – The next one has to be Lance. If it’s not,
then I got all of them wrong. – (FBE) This one is Lance. (ding)
– (softly) Yes! [inaudible] – That’s Lance?!
– I was gonna put him as Lance, but then I was like,
no, Justin works. – Hey, I got that one right!
– Oh! I got Lance! – (FBE) This is Joey.
– No way. – Ahh!
(buzzer) – Uh-huh, I know Joey.
– That’s Joey. – That’s definitely Joey. – (FBE) This is JC. (buzzer)
– What the heck? – I got JC wrong.
– Whoops. (chuckles) – 40% score! – (FBE) And this is Justin.
– Is it actually? – (FBE) Yeah, it’s–
– ‘Cause that does not look like him.
– It would’ve been really bad if I got all of them wrong.
– I just put Joey for everyone, so it didn’t matter. (chuckles)
– That’s Timberlake, right? – (FBE) That’s Justin Timberlake.
– Oh, now I feel really dumb. (laughs) – Technically, we failed.
But it’s okay! It’s okay. We got the majority.
– I knew Justin and Joey, but I actually guessed Lance. I’m pretty good at this guessing game,
I guess. I guess. (clicks tongue) – (FBE) So, NSYNC is considered
one of the best-selling boy bands of all time, having sold
over 70 million records despite just releasing three albums. – What?! No way. – They only did three albums?
Are you serious?! I feel like they did more. – (FBE) While NSYNC has had
a number of hits over the years, for some people
in today’s generation, they’re more remembered
for launching the career of Justin Timberlake,
one of the biggest artists and entertainers in the world today.
– Arguably. – (FBE) For people your age,
do you guys think of NSYNC as its own entity
or is that just the group that brought us JT?
– I think both, ’cause there are definitely songs
that I heard that I think, oh, this is NSYNC.
I’m not thinking, like, oh, this is
a Justin Timberlake song. – I just know of NSYNC.
I only think of it as them. – Younger kids, they don’t
necessarily know about that. They don’t always listen
to older music. So, they’d know Justin Timberlake. – Even as someone who was not alive
during that time, I still remember NSYNC as NSYNC. – I just think
of Justin Timberlake, you know? I don’t really think of NSYNC,
because how could I really– why would I care? – I always saw NSYNC
as kind of, like, oh, that was the boy band
that Justin Timberlake was in. – It’s pretty much always the group
that made this person popular. You kind of feel bad
for the rest of the members, ’cause they don’t get
really enough credit. – (FBE) So, finally,
like many groups that have split up, NSYNC has reunited
for guest appearances and small little performances
over the years. However, they’ve not made
any new music since 2002. Do you think that people
would actually be excited for new music from NSYNC
or is this a group that 100% should stay in the past? – I don’t think
they should remain in the past. – They should release some music.
There’s fans out there that still wanna listen
to their music. – They should stick
with singing their old songs, because that’s what everybody knows. – I feel like they would
just stay in the past. They’re just kind of,
like, nostalgia. – They’re famous
for being in that band. And what else do they have to do?
They might as well come back and just spend some time
writing music together. – If they did a brand new album,
people would like the idea of it, but I don’t think
as many people would listen. – Boy bands are actually
still pretty popular, so I definitely think
that they would be pretty well-off. It feels like a product of the ’90s, but I think that it could
be even more successful. – Thanks for watching Teens React.
