Submitted by on November 1, 2009 – 6:51 pm7 Comments

Early *NSYNC

Chris worked at Universal with Hollywood Hightones for three years (NPO)

Lance joined Nsync just before his senior year of high school (NY)

Joey and Chris meet while working at Universal Studios. Chris as a doo-wop singer and Joey as a werewolf in the Beetlejuice Graveyard Revue. Chris gets the idea to form an a cappella group. He calls Justin who he met at auditions, Justin calls JC who he knows can harmonize well, Chris and JC run into Joey at a club, whom they both know, and Justin calls his vocal coach in Memphis to find a good bass singer, and he recommends Lance. Thus, ‘N Sync is formed. They start putting together demos and practicing in an abandoned warehouse. They perform anywhere they can, including Joey’s old High School. The guys meet Lou Pearlman, they are signed to Transcon Records and he starts to promote ‘N Sync.
