MTV rounded up the troops to host an awards show to pay homage to something called a "music video" ... something that hasn't been seen on MTV in a very, very long time.
Still, the stars need an excuse to get together and rock out in wild outfits ... and TMZ has the photos of the craziness as it goes down outside the show!

It's happening ... it's really, really happening ... *NSYNC is reuniting on the VMA stage -- this according to the band's official Twitter.
It's kind of ironic ... Twitter didn't even exist when *NSYNC was famous -- but that didn't stop the boy band from all-but-confirming their HIGHLY anticipated MTV performance in 140 characters or less, writing, "mic check, mic check one ... two ... is this thing on?!"
So unless they just like screwing with people ... it's soooooo on.
