Question: What has been the funniest thing that has happened to you on stage?

NSyncLive: Justin: I broke my thumb onstage once. Somebody put some water on the stage, we were doing an outside show, they were hosing down the audience.

Question: With all of the traveling and touring it hard to find your own peace & quiet?

NSyncLive: Justin: It is very hard to find your own peace and quiet. You usually only find it in your hotel room because that's where you can go to sleep from your exhaustion.

AOLiveMC5: We have time for only one last question: )


NSyncLive: Chris: Yes, we were. Some of us were. We didn't know Lance. Lance: That's why we think that we'll last for a long time because we weren't put together by a record company. Thanks for all your support... We love you, and we'll see you online. Joey: If we didn't get to your question, we hope to be back real soon. Justin: Check out our web page, we think it's awesome.
