Well this is incredibly awkward.

When *NSYNC reunited on the Ellen show during the week, long-time fans lost their collective minds, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing for the five boy bander’s.

Keen eyed fans, who let’s face it, have watched the segment on repeat since it aired, noticed a very awkward detail during the chat about a *NSYNC group text.

“Have y’all kept in touch, do you text?” Ellen asked the band to which JC Jasez responded, “Yes, we actually have a very ridiculous group chat.”

While this may seem pretty innocent – you need to check out Chris Kirkpatrick’s face.

When Ellen asks the initial question, he shakes his head. AWKWARD. Then, while JC is responding, he looks at the other guys in a sort of confused panic, almost as though he has ZERO idea about what they’re talking about.

“It’s the easiest way,” JC continues, while the others are all re-affirming their involvement. Chris quickly pretends that he too is part of it – but the awkwardness has already passed.  Eep.

“You have a nice little group chat and everyone you run into says, ‘I want to see the group chat’,” he says. Chris would also like to see the group chat, JC!

The reunion came off the back of *NSYNC’s star on the Hollywood walk of fame, where all five members, Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, Chris Kirkpatrick, Lance Bass and Joey Fatone, were all in attendance.
