Yahoomc: ok -- here we go gang, welcome joey from 'nsync!
Yahoo_NSYNC: Joey: Hello What's up and does anybody have any questions? :-)

kellyM16_98 asks: you guys ever get frustrated with the hectic schedule?
Yahoo_NSYNC: Never really frustrated, just tired sometimes

NSYNCAngel_Sista asks: How long did it take you guys to rehearse for your new tour?
Yahoo_NSYNC: It took us.. we were in rehearsals for about 2 weeks.. which is not really enough time for a whole big tour, but we did it

MiLkJLtd asks: What's the best and worst things about touring?
Yahoo_NSYNC: The worst thing -- not enough sleep and you don't see enough of the cities you're in. Best thing -- we get to meet a lot of our fans and perform in front of thousands and thousands and thousands of people

MMMBoppin_Hyper_Zac_Hanson_Fan asks: Do you guys ever get homesick?
Yahoo_NSYNC: Of course we do. We miss our friends and our family.. The neighborhood as well

gina_ballerina asks: Has Joey had formal dance training? I heard he wanted to learn to tap - true?
Yahoo_NSYNC: LOL... No I don't know about tapping! I did take tap classes in HS.. and jazz.. but I attempted to take tap.. not very well :)

Rosebud428 asks: Would you ever get your tongue pierced?
Yahoo_NSYNC: Possibly. I was thinking about it for a while, I actually pierced my eyebrow, but the metal rejected it. So I don't know.. it might affect my singing

ChrisK4Me_71 asks: What famous artist would you like to do a duet with?
Yahoo_NSYNC: Hmmm... We're open for anybody and everybody. It's always good to collaborate with any artist.. it can range from Boyz 2 Men to the Goo Goo Dolls... Who ever is willing :)

MisOjosLloranPorTi asks: Has any girl ever turned you down even though you're in 'N SYNC
Yahoo_NSYNC: Of course. I'm just a normal person just like everyone else. Normal people and famous people get turned down too

MeganB2001 asks: If someone wrote a movie about your lives...what actors would play each of you???
Yahoo_NSYNC: Hmmm...That's pretty difficult. Ryan Phillippe would play Justin.. the guy from Studio 54. I think Ross from Friends would play me. Chris... Adam Sandler. JC... I don't even know... probably somebody like Luke Perry or something. Lance... probably would have to be... I wouldn't even know. I'll get back to you on that one.

Sarah_D_W asks: Do you think that fame has gone to your head in any way?
Yahoo_NSYNC: Oh no, not really.. All of us keep each other on the ground and if I had a chip on my shoulder or a big head about this... my mom would kick my butt

spider123ABC asks: I took a dance class that covered ballet and jazz for a while in order to improve my expression for figure skating and it was physically exhausting, how do you guys manage to do that for 2 hours straight?
Yahoo_NSYNC: It's a lot of hard work and not only do we dance, but we sing on top of it, so it's an aerobic exercise. It takes a lot of practice to take big gasps of air :)

nsync_princess15 asks: Do you or any of the boys know sign language?? Keri, 15, OR
Yahoo_NSYNC: No. I wish I had. A fan gave us a video tape where she had signed "A little more time with you" and I would've liked to learn it for the tour

Sweet_Dreamer_1010 asks: What's it like with the puupy on you guys fight over who gets to play with him?...Love Jennifer

HOMESKILLET79 asks: If you could spend the day as another person, who would it be?
Yahoo_NSYNC: Hmmm.... wow.... so many.... I'd say Robert DeNiro to see what makes him tick and to do movies...that would be a cool thing to do.

MayFourthNineteenSeventyNine asks: I was just wondering if you guys know where you are going in advance... or do you just find out a day or two ahead of time? Thanks
Yahoo_NSYNC: We have a tour schedule. A tour book that tells us where we're going, but sometimes I don't know where we're going until we get there. I know right now I'm in Rhode Island

three_turtles asks: What lifestyle changes have you guys made to adapt to the tour schedule?
Yahoo_NSYNC: Pack a lot of clothes.. just always being on the road, you kinda get used to it.. you bring a lot of movies.. video games. Our bus is our home away from home

HOMESKILLET79 asks: If you could only listen to one CD for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
Yahoo_NSYNC: Wow. Probably a CD that I have made myself. I have a CD burner and i could put a whole bunch of songs on it.. so my own compilation with different types of music

Yahoo_NSYNC: Not into it too much, but I've heard of Stone Cold Austin

coolfreeze69 asks: Do you guys feel you have to compete with other boy bands like Backstreet Boys, 98 degrees or 5ive
Yahoo_NSYNC: No, we feel that we have to do the best we can to our abilities and there is going to be competition no matter what type of group it is. Everyone is competing in the same thing as far as Billboard charts are concerned

Q_Spawn_Q asks: What do you have planned for "The Boys of Summer" tour? I will be there!!!
Yahoo_NSYNC: Cool. Most of it, this tour is a lot of pyro.. the summer tour will be more just for the music... Five is going to be with us and Jordan Knight and perhaps some other people... It's going to be outside, during the summer. It's going to be partying

kandy85_99 asks: What is the most dangerous thing you ever did?
Yahoo_NSYNC: I guess when I was a kid I jumped out of a 2nd story window onto a very thin mattress... probably when I was 9, 10 maybe. Don't ask me why I was doing it... Another time I jumped off a roof into a huge huge pile of sand. It was only about 1 story though.. and when I hit the sand my sneakers sunk to the bottom so I had to pull my feet out of the sand...

Class_of_316_Grad asks: what will be on the new album, and what is the title?
Yahoo_NSYNC: We haven't picked a title.. but the new album will have the nsync sound, but new twists.. we're not sure yet, we're still recording it. It will probably be out next fall

Symphonique20 asks: If you could relive one day of your life - not changing anything, just experiencing the day as it was - which day would you choose and why?
Yahoo_NSYNC: That's a pretty good question... Probably when I graduated HS.. it was happy and sad at the same time... very emotional.. some friends were going, some staying. It was a good relief graduating :-)
