Los Angeles - Thousands of fans shut down Hollywood's Walk of Fame on Monday as 1990s boy band *NSync were recognised for a glittering chart run that catapulted Justin Timberlake to pop superstardom.
The heartthrob was joined by bandmates Lance Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick to receive their star on the iconic thoroughfare, watched by talk show hosts Ellen DeGeneres and Carson Daly.
"For all of you who came from far and wide to be here to share this moment with us, thank you so much - this really means the world to all of us," Timberlake, an accomplished singer and actor yelled out at the screaming crowd.
The band went on what they described at the time as a "hiatus" in 2002 but have not performed together since, except for a brief reunion in 2013 when Timberlake received an award at the MTV Video Music Awards.
"We're brothers, we're family, and out of all this, the music, the tours, the love from the fans - it's my brotherhood with you guys that I'm most thankful for,'' Bass told his bandmates during the ceremony.
Fatone took the opportunity to joke about Timberlake's comparative superstardom compared to the rest of the group, saying: "You can also see me performing at Chuck E. Cheese next week."
