“The fans are who gave us the star. They’re the ones who wrote the people as well as raised the money… We wanted to do something a little more special than just showing up at the ceremony, so we’ve created a nice *NSYNC experience,” Bass expressed. “We’re building the idea at This kind of point, so I have no idea what the idea’s going to look like. nevertheless the idea’ll be definitely fun, installation pieces of which you can have a lot of great Instagram pictures with.”
