Disney Channel Performance

Based on an interview with Billboard, linked below:

In 1998, NSYNC released their first album, titled *NSYNC. The album debuted at No. 82 on the Billboard 200, up until their summer performance on Disney Channel Live in Concert. After this concert, their album jumped up to No. 2 and sold 10 million copies in the United States.

They performed in front of the MGM Studios Mann Chinese Theater. They were asked about doing the show after the Backstreet Boys were forced to cancel because band member Brian Littrell needed to undergo heart surgery.
