Is 'N Sync planning to reunite on the "Saturday Night Live" 40th anniversary special Sunday?

"'Together again... Gee, it's good to be together again' #SNL40," the tweet read.
Rolling Stone and Huffington Post could not confirm the reunion rumors. E!, however, claimed that a "SNL" representative said 'N Sync and the Backstreet Boys will attend the special, which airs at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
