Before Beliebers and Directioners, there were rabid 'NSync fans. They didn't need some cutesy nickname, just Justin Timberlake's Chia Pet curls and Lance Bass's ice blonde hair spikes.

It's been 11 years since the band went on “hiatus” (we refuse to believe it’s over), but God had to spend a little more time on getting them back together. Now fans are coming out of the '90s closet thanks to the rumor that 'NSync may reunite at the 2013 VMAs.

One fan clearly not shy about her excitement is The Bachelor 17's Sarah Herron. She tweeted the enticing tease "HOLYF*CKINGSH*T!!!!!!!!!!!" then linked to an Instagram photo showing the band under the headline "'NSYNC to Reunite at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards?"

As one fan tweeted in reply to Sarah’s freak out, “It's the only thing that makes women scream louder than @juanpagalavis being the next bachelor.” Truth.

Not to be a Debbie Downer, but in a post-rumor interview, Lance kinda distanced himself from the reunion idea. He definitely didn’t confirm it, but he also didn't come out and say it wouldn't happen. It could be like Destiny's Child making it seem like they wouldn't reunite at the Super Bowl when they went ahead and blew our minds.

It sounds like Sarah will be watching this Sunday's VMAs to see if the rumor is true. Will you be crushed if there's no real reunion, and they were just (rival band reference alert!) playing games with our hearts?
