Our Last Night does some pretty sweet covers of popular songs like “Skyfall” and “Wrecking Ball,” and their latest creation is this rock version of N*SYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” featuring Cody Carson of the band Set It Off.

“Really, can 10 of those hairstyles be on the same stage? I think we already know the answer. We should just form some super group. It’d be hilarious. What I have seen [of One Direction], I like them. They seem grounded to me, I like that about them.”
– Ex-boy-bander Justin Timberlake gave the best response ever when asked for his thoughts on One Direction, the harmonizing heartthrobs of the moment. Not only does he approve of the young lads’ “grounded” attitudes, he proposed forming an *NSYNC/One Direction supergroup, which I think boy band fans of past and present can all agree would be AMAZING.

P.S. Chris Kirkpatrick’s face in the photo above is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. See what I mean, after the jump… Keep reading »
“Probably, while we were underneath the stage, maybe…[Kevin is] so close to the ground he can smell it.”
–Joey Fatone responds to host Kevin Hart’s claim that he let one rip during the *NSYNC reunion performance at the VMAs with a zinger of his own. Genius followup question by the TMZ paparazzo: “Were you winded from the performance?” Clearly he was. [TMZ]
