So Joey Fatone just saw the Britney episode of Glee and now he’s running around telling any media outlet that will listen that he’s ready to see the kids try their hand at his old boy band’s music.
Joey told People:
“I saw the Britney Spears one and I thought it was kind of cool. I said, ‘You know what? They should do an ‘NSYNC one.’ So I mentioned it on Twitter, and everyone is retweeting it and saying, ‘That would be great!’ I love acting and I like to sing. It’d be perfect! Seriously, it’s a great show. I’m a fan.”
First of all, Joey… “Everyone” isn’t Tweeting that at you. The people who follow you and @ reply you may be saying that, but certainly there was no #JoeyFatone4Glee trending topics on Tuesday night. Secondly, the Britney episode may have sparked some early ’00s memories for those Tweeters, but no. *NSYNC does not need their own episode of Glee because pretty much everyone they dedicate an episode to on the show is legendary and while *NSYNC may have been pretty big back the day, the music hardly falls under the category “new classics.”
And finally… Yes, Joey. We know you love to dance and sing. You’ve been haunting us with your ability to do so for over a decade.
