Lancey’s Premier

Last night, we saw the premier of Lancey (aka Lance Bass and Lacey Schwimmer) on Dancing with the Stars.  For those of you who know me, you know that there was a point in my life in which I was obsessed with NSYNC–a point in my life that continues to this day.  In college, my equally obsessed roommates and I would schedule our lives around NSYNC TV appearances, while I would man the VCR remote to capture all the moments so we could watch the gyrating hip action on loop.  I recall the first time I watched NSYNC N the Mix.  At the time, I was skeptical.  I mean, what group could possibly compete with New Kids on the Block, the quintessential example of all that is pop goodness?  Then, my eyes landed upon this man–who you all know to be Mr. Snake in the Pants:

Yeah yeah.  Some of you might be saying–you liked THAT guy?  Because I watched N the Mix, and that dude had bleached blonde nasty hair!  To all of you mocking me, I need only point you to the picture above.  Like Tyra’s ability to pull out the model in small town girls, I saw the hotness in bleached blonde JT.

Anyways, this is not about JT.  Last night, it was Lance’s time to shine, and boy did he get a bomb-diggity partner!  As an avid fan of SYTYCD, I was ecstatic to hear that the show had reached out to the bombshell that is Lacey Schwimmer.  Below, I present to you their first live performance:

In watching this video, bear in mind that Lance was quite possibly the worst dancer in NSYNC–I mean, Chris had more hip action than Lance.  For a good example, see below at about minute 2:45.  In college, we dubbed this move by Lance, the “throll.”  Not quite a thrust.  Not quite a roll.  But good try Lancey.

So given Lance’s fabulous performance last night, I’m quite proud of him.  You go Lance!

An Exciting Rumor

Lance Bass of NSYNC has spoken out about the possibility of a reunion.  First, the New Kids got back together and made my fourth grade dreams come true.  Now, NSYNC and all their gyrating goodness may return to make my college dreams come true.  I still remember when they swept into my life.  I was a naive freshman in college, fresh from the safety net of high school and poised to embark on the journey that would become my life.  However, that journey was thwarted by the entry of a new obsession.  When I first watched NSYNC ‘N the Mix, I knew that my life would change.  That my schedule would have to be redirected to ensure that I could witness every live event; every television interview; every hosting appearance.  I watched JT’s hair morph from curly blonde threads to naturally short to ‘fro and to shaven.  I learned each dance, pumping my fists to Bye Bye Bye and throwing my arms out to I Just Wanna Be With You.

Query on life–can I handle two boy band obsessions at once?!!?
