Now this, we never thought we'd see.

There's a ripple of excitement making its way through a host of music fans this week.

Rumours of a very unexpected boyband comeback are doing the rounds and we simply can't ignore this one.

Word on the street is that the legendary Justin Timberlake is planning to reunite with his 'N Sync buddies for a performance at the MTV Video Music Awards this Sunday.

According to the New York Post, JT will take to the stage once more with former bandmates JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick.

The news comes as a surprise after JC dismissing rumours of a comeback last year. He told The Hollywood Reporter:  "I'm sure that everybody in my group has been asked at one time or another -- I know I get asked, I know the other guys get asked -- but we're happy with what it was and we're happy to move on."

While we eagerly await Sunday's ceremony, let's take a look back at musical legends making a comeback.
