It is believed Justin was unable to make the gig as he hadn’t had time to rehearse with the band due to his own touring commitments, TMZ reports.Justin and *NSYNC have remained friends since they wen their separate ways and he previously described them as a “family” as the group were honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.Speaking at the ceremony recently, Justin said: “These four guys mean so much to me. We’re really a family and the memories that we have and the times that we’ve shared and the families that we’ve built from it … I don’t think I could really put into words how much the four of you mean to me.”
Justin had previously confessed he had left *NSYNC because he felt he was “growing out of it”.Speaking about the split, he shared: “We were on a stadium tour, and I just felt like the whole thing was too big. It started as a fun snowball fight that was becoming an avalanche. And, also, I was growing out of it. I felt like I cared more about the music than some of the other people in the group. And I felt like I had other music I wanted to make and that I needed to follow my heart.”
