N'sync were an American boy band who were formed in Orlando, Florida in 1995. The group consisted of 5 male members JC Chasez, Justin Timberlake, Lance Bass, Joey Fatone, & Chris Kirkpatrick. They were managed by Lou Pearlman, who has worked with previous famous bands such as Backstreet Boys and O-town. Between 1995 and 1998 the group were signed by Sony BMG record label, however just before their second album " No Strings Attached" was released N'Sync filed a very public law suit against Sony BMG & their manager Lou Pearlman, resulting in N'sync going on to be part of RCA Records between 1998 & 1999, after this between 1999 & 2002 the band were part of Jive Records.
The group released their first song in 1998 " I Want You Back" it reached number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100, their first album was released in March, however rate were slow and album sales were low, resulting in the album reaching 82 on the Billboard 200. To help the band sales increase Disney Channel aired one of their concerts for them in July.
After this the sales increased more and within three weeks of the concert, the album reached number 9, and then six month later the band were in the top ten. Then after appearing on "Sabrina the teenage Witch" Their Second single " Tearing Up My Heart " peaked at number 2 in April 1998, then shortly after also in the same year, N'sync formed a law suit against their manager and the record label Sony BMG.
*NSYNC had a publicized legal battle with Lou Pearlman, due to what the group believed were illicit business practices on his part. 'N Sync sued Pearlman and his record company, Trans Continental, for defrauding the group of more than fifty percent of their earnings, rather than his promise of only receiving one-sixth of the profits. The group threatened to leave and sign with Jive Records, which prompted Pearlman and RCA to countersue 'N Sync for US$150 million and the use of the name. Pearlman's request for a preliminary injunction against the band was denied. After reaching a settlement out of court, 'N Sync signed with Jive.- Wikipedia
In 2002 after their Celebrity tour N'sync went on a break, due to Justin Timberlake wanting to focus on his solo career. The group still went to award ceremony's together, and regrouped in 2003 to sing a medley of the Bee Gee's at the Grammy awards, as a tribute to the Bee Gee's this was the groups last television performance. Then in the fall of 2005, after their final re- group for the Annual Challenge For Children, the band released a greatest hits album. More recently in 2010, N'sync released The Collection which is an album that just consists of singles that were released in the USA.
In order to keep the band history alive and the fans happy, in 2010 the bands official website was relaunched, which has been updated to keep fans informed on previous members recent or future plans.
