Joey Fatone Is Hosting An NSYNC Lip Sync Battle In Cleveland

By one measure, Joey Fatone is the most successful member of NSYNC. He was in My Big Fat Greek Wedding, and that movie made more money than any of the other films featuring a mid-1990s boy band member… except Shrek the Third, starring Justin Timberlake. So, yeah, JT has far and away the best career, and while he’s hanging out with the Coen Brothers or making babies with Jessica Biel, Fatone will be in Ohio, attending an NSYNC lip sync contest.

On July 11, Fatone will host a 1990s-themed bar crawl in Cleveland, the Joey Fatone of cities. The event listing promises that each participant receives a “fanny pack, slap stick bracelet, sunglasses, fishbowl, and Freeze Pop,” and one lucky winner who knows all the lyrics to “Space Cowboy (Yippie-Yi-Yay),” chosen by Fatone, will win a pair of tickets to Rascal Flatts, a band that didn’t release an album in the 1990s. Tragically, the official artwork cuts off Fatone’s face.

Fatone is a natural host and “I Love My ’90s Bar Crawl” sounds like…

IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN.
