PHOTOS: MTV VMAs 2013: Justin Timberlake, ’N Sync, Miley Cyrus and more
Top moments of the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards include the not-so-surprising ’N Sync reunion, Miley Cyrus twerking, Lady Gaga’s outfit changes and Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech.
'N Sync Justin Timberlake, the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award recipient, hit every familiar note in his catalogue during a masterful greatest-hits medley that proved that simpler is often better. His solo performance ended with the dramatic appearance of ‘N Sync (the performance was the show’s worst-kept “secret,” but everyone tried to look surprised). The reunited boy band performed briefly – but as equals as Timberlake moved to the back of the formation during the “Bye, Bye, Bye” choreography. Rick Diamond/Getty Images for MTV
