Why Is There A Star In *NSYNC?

By Annie Scaramuzzino 

For two decades, fans have wondered why *NSYNC had a star in its name.

Now, that longtime mystery has been solved, by none other than former band member Joey Fatone!

While recently speaking with The Huffington Post, the singer/actor explained the very magical story, which centers around Israeli illusionist Uri Geller.

“We saw him in the U.K., and this is when we were obviously establishing *NSYNC, and he goes, ‘I see something. It has to do with suns or stars or something with astronomy in your career,’” Fatone remembers. “And it’s funny, a year later when we did the first album, for America, they had a star in it.”

Huff Po later reached out to Geller himself, who corroborated the story and provided a little more insight.

“We sat down and I wrote, on a napkin, NSYNC, and I drew a star in the cafe [in Covent Garden].” Geller explained. “And I told them, if they place that star on their first CD, they’re going to shoot up to No. 1.”
