NSYNC’s Acceptance For Best Dance Video

Unfortunately the transcript doesn’t indicate who said what, but Justin talked most of the time when Mandy Moore, Jessica Simpson, and Dream presented them the award.

Thank you.

I think we had no idea we were going to win this.

I think Fatboy Slim was robbed, honestly.

We want to thank Wayne for making a great video and most of all thank our lord up above. The privilege every day we have on this planet.

Man, this is kind of shocking. Our families, Johnny, who is like a second father to us.

Clive. The record company, Barry, our moms, our dads, our families. I think, like they said before, I think it’s really important to celebrate the gift of life. All right. Let’s celebrate the gift of life wade played a big part in this video. Thank you, wade.

I love you.

See y’all later.

Bye y’all.

NSYNC Cancels VMA Afterparty

September 6, 2001 – The New York Daily News reports *NSYNC has cancelled their plans for a Video Music Award after party at the China Club in New York tonight after the tragic death of Aaliyah on August 25. In addition, a source told MSNBC’s Jeannette Walls Lance Bass’ reasoning for not attending any afterparty saying, “MTV is going to have a tribute to Aaliyah. Lance thinks it’s in bad taste to go whooping it up after that.” Bass does plan on attending pre-VMA parties though according to Walls.

*NSYNC Car Decoration Contest Winners Screwed Over By MTV

According to reports, the winner of the *NSYNC car decoration contest was scammed by MTV. Bree Nicole, a 14 year old from Santa Fe Springs, California told her story on the MSN message boards.

Hi, my name is Bree Nicole, I am 14 years old from Santa Fe Springs, California. I am writing to you in regards of the MTV: NSYNC Road To Celebrity Taping that was filmed July, 16 2001 (yesterday). I attended that taping with 3 friends of mine, my cousin and my Mom.

My mother drove us all the way down to San Diego at 4 o’clock Monday morning.

When we got there we had to wait for 2 hours before they were able to let us in. Finally we made in it, then we were told that they had run out of the Celebrity CDs so they gave us one T-shirt, even though we were one of the first 150 cars.(we were around the 60th car in) So when we got into the parking lot and were told were to park the staff of MTV were beginning to walk around to choose the 5 finalist for the contest for the best NSYNC mobile.

Our car was chosen as one of the five finalists! We were so psyched.

They started off with NSYNC performing Gone and then throughout the whole thing NSYNC was being interviewed by Carson and they were counting down the top 10 NSYNC moments. It was so cool, but very hot outside.
