(Newser) – The Internet is abuzz with the most exciting news since New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys went on tour together: *NSYNC is back ... reportedly. According to the New York Post's sources, the boy band will reunite Sunday night at the VMAs. MTV has already announced Justin Timberlake will be performing at the awards show, but the sources say he'll be joined by JC Chasez, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick. And all of the above were in Timberlake's VIP section Friday night at the Jay Z concert in Miami...

A sampling of the amusingly breathless Twitter reaction:

  • @asingleton138: "Crying because #nsync is reuniting for the VMA's and I've never been so happy ever"
  • @shesliketexasss: "OMG OMG OMG. I CAN'T EVEN.... Ahhhh THIS IS THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE"
  • @LisaKasha: "Dear God, I hope this is true. My life will be complete."
  • @WhoaGxD: "IS THIS REAL LIFE I THINK I'M HAVING A HEARTATTACK. WHAT IS AIR. PLEASE TELL ME THIS ISN'T A SICK JOKE"
  • @MaggieTyma: "WHATTTT?! This is the best news I've ever heard in my whole life ever."
  • @SDCCnerdsattack: "So a possible #NSync reunion at the VMA's?! Excuse me as a I FLAIL AROUND."
  • @iitsbrittney: "I would literally fall on the floor, dead."
  • @ctonies: "Guys, #Nsync is going to be at the VMAs! I cannot handle being at work after hearing this news I should tell my boss I have to go #byebyebye"
  • @lesliejeannene: "I will not get too excited for this #nsync reunion - it can only lead to heartbreak when they don't sing Digital Get Down."
  • And our favorite, from @zeemuffin: "I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW CHRIS WAS STILL ALIVE!!!"
Not to be outdone, Britney Spears has started some sort of countdown clock on her website, meaning what must certainly be BIG NEWS, Perez Hilton reports.
