One of the members of the last great American boy band is wondering where all the homegrown boy band talent is.
Since leaving N'Sync, Lance Bass has come out and come into his own as a radio host with his own daily show, Dirty Pop with Lance Bass on SiriusXM. He's also been hosting the pre-show at the American Music Awards for the last three years, where the three-time AMA winner spoke with Hollywire's own Chelsea Briggs about his favorite AMA moments with N'Sync and the current state of boy bands.
Lance has attended every AMA show since N'Sync was first nominated back in 1998 and said he still gets the urge to jump out on stage during the event. "The Grammys can be kind of stuffy, but this is the one stage you can play around with and spend a lot of money on your props and stuff to make it your own," said Lance. "We did a performance one year of It's Gonna Be Me with five-story marionettes and it really helped kick off our No Strings Attached theme.
In the decade since N'Sync has released their last album, we've seen boy bands like One Direction and The Wanted take over the teen-pop throne. How does Lance feel about it? "I think it's great. I love that boy bands are coming back," he said. "I think we're missing the American boy bands because the Brits are kicking our butts now. We need to get some home grown talent going here!" Or have a current boy band reclaim the throne. Jonas Brothers, we're looking at you!
