‘90s kid at heart

Savannah Sawyer

“‘N Sync … n’ stinks!” Yes, I was one of those kids on the playground in elementary school hating on ‘N Sync. (Side note: 1. how is ‘N Sync?n’ stinks a phrase? And 2. Does that even make sense?)

Even though my loyalty was with the Backstreet Boys back in the day, a piece of my 10-year-old self almost died when ‘N Sync reunited onstage at the MTV VMAs Sunday night.

Artists of the ‘90s have really made a comeback in the past few years.

The first to make a comeback was Britney Spears. After the crazy train she was on for a few years finally came to a stop, she managed to get back in the game. Some of her latest albums have been my favorite and I?can’t wait to see what else she has in store.

At the 2012 Summer Olympics the Spice Girls reunited onstage during the opening ceremony. I was never a huge Spice Girls fan, but I?knew the music and it was fun to see them do their thing.

Beyonce reunited with Destiny’s Child, briefly, during this year’s Superbowl halftime show. I was hoping their reunion would last longer than the few minutes they were onstage, but alas, that wasn’t the case.

Just this summer, the Backstreet Boys made a second comeback – if that’s even possible – when they made a guest appearance in (SPOILER ALERT!) “This is the End.” It was great because they were able to make fun of themselves without being too over-the-top cheesy. To my knowledge, they are still making music together.

I love seeing all these groups reuniting, whether it’s for a short time onstage or for a long-term basis.

It just makes me wonder who will be the next to reunite. Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch? What about S Club 7?
