Everyone is talking about a recent surprise performance.
Well, it all happened because the closeted surprise performer went on a couple dates back in the day with the person having the show, who just so happens to be our favorite closeted former network actor who is going to get an Emmy nomination.
Darren Criss & JC Chasez Sang *NSYNC Songs Together & It’s A ‘90s Pop Dream
What happens when the star of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story hosts a party at the Roxy on St. Patrick’s Day? Uh, Darren Criss and JC Chasez sing some *NSYNC songs together, apparently. As Entertainment Tonight reported, Criss threw a ‘90s-themed concert at the Hollywood venue on Saturday night, and at one point, invited Chasez to join him onstage. The two wildly talented singers proceeded to perform acoustic versions of “I Want You Back” and “Tearin’ Up My Heart.” A happy St. Paddy’s to us all.
And because every now and again the internet can be used for good, some of the folks who were in attendance documented Criss and Chasez’s renditions of these beloved *NSYNC tracks and shared the videos with the planet. You can check out a compilation of some of the Instagram Stories taken during Chasez and Criss’ duet here.
Man, is Chasez’s voice is just as beautiful and powerful as it was two decades ago, or is it just as beautiful and powerful as it was two decades ago? *Waves goodbye to breath.* And Criss’ voice is like a dream, per usual. These two guys sound so… in sync.
And when Chasez and Criss harmonize during the “Tearin’ Up My Heart” chorus? Your body will probably turn into one big goosebump made out of billions of little goosebump. And then, those goosebumps will be like, “It’s too gorgeous, we can’t take it, can you get us a glass of water?” And then, you will chug a coffee mug’s worth of water and the goosebumps will calm down and you will feel temporarily sated. But then, you will want to watch the video again. And before you know it, you will be stuck in a loop: Watch the video of Chasez and Criss sing, turn into an enormous goosebump, pour water down gullet, settle down, repeat. It really isn’t the worst way to spend a Monday evening. – Source
