Missing 'N SYNC Boy Bander Chris Kirkpatrick Found, DJ-ing Mac & Cheese Party in Orlando
JC, Joey, Justin, Lance, and ... Um, who's the fifth guy?
Oh, right, Chris! And good news for Captain Kirkpatrick's legion of followers: Aside from a from a torn ACL in his left knee, the former 'N SYNC countertenor is alive and well, seemingly pushing toward a monumental comeback that'll have Justin Timberlake second-guessing his 2002 decision to leave the boy band and pursue a solo career.
The 40-year-old Kirkpatrick is scheduled to DJ a "Mac & Cheese" dance party at an Orlando bar tonight, preceded by a half-hour "meet and greet" with a gaggle of fans.
"Wait... This is real?" Ely Tarrago asked on Orlando's Independent Bar "unofficial" Facebook page.

We don't know for sure. Calls to Independent Bar were not immediately returned. But the message on the establishment's answering machine described the Wednesday format as "cheesy music from the '80s through today."
And because nothing in life is cheesier than a celebrity DJ who also happens to be a former '90s boy band member, we can't imagine Kirkpatrick turning this gig down.
