MTV VMAs Biggest Reunions
Twelve years after the beloved boy band rocked the VMAs stage, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick joined forces again for a much-hyped reunion with fellow member Justin Timberlake. The group performed "Bye Bye Bye" and "Girlfriend" during a medley of Timberlake's greatest hits to celebrate his being honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
Just four months after Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes's 2002 death, remaining TLC members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas appeared together for the first time on television to honor their friend. Announcing the establishment of the MTV Lisa Lopes AIDS Scholarship, an emotional Watkins and Thomas thanked fans for their support but tearfully acknowledged that taking the VMAs stage without the group's third member was a "reality check."
BRITNEY & CHRISTINA
Feud? What feud? Former Mouseketeers-turned-pop princesses Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera were nothing but polite and playful as they introduced Whitney Houston at the 2000 awards ceremony. Three years later, the duo reunited yet again, this time sharing the stage – and some same-sex smooches – with Madonna for a medley of her hits "Like a Virgin" and "Hollywood."
Fans of the rockers rejoiced in 1996 when David Lee Roth, Michael Anthony and brothers Eddie and Alex Van Halen stood on stage together for the first time in over a decade. Even the guys looked happy to be reunited, as they shared jokes and embraces before presenting the best male video award. The good vibes didn't last long, however, and the foursome reportedly almost got into a backstage brawl over Roth's attempts to hog the spotlight.
The recently reunited band didn't just perform at the 1996 awards show – they celebrated their comeback with the help of a fireworks display and some good old-fashioned guitar smashing while singing their hit under the Brooklyn Bridge.
