In MTV's behind the scenes special on the making of Justin's first solo album, he's clearly nervous and beating himself up over how his first solo performance went. Joey is clearly not having any of it.
Joey: Hey hey hey! I don't want to hear any of that attitude, mister! You just performed and you did pretty damn good. I'm impressed!
Joey was the first one in the band Lance came out to, and Britney was the first one outside the band and his family that he came out to.
Lance, Chris, and JC were in the audience at various times supporting Joey when he was on Dancing with the Stars. In turn, JC and Joey turned up to support Lance when he participated two seasons later.
Starting with the PopOdyssey Tour, they could have easily afforded 5 separate tour buses to travel in, but instead only divided into 2 buses, with Justin, Chris, and JC on one bus and Joey and Lance (and their menagerie of pets) on the other.
They celebrated Chris's 40th birthday by secretly arranging with his now-wife to hire a personal chef to prepare a surprise private birthday dinner at Chris's home just for the five of them. It's especially heartwarming since Justin admitted that they hadn't been in the same room since 2005 and they had stayed up all night just to talk. Joey and Lance then surprised Chris the next day with a birthday party in Miami.
Chris and his wife are officially part of Justin's entourage and have been accompanying him on tour. Justin even dedicated a performance of "Gone" to Chris.
While on their PopOdyssey Tour, Joey caught pneumonia and was out of commission for a short while. During one of their concerts, Chris brought out a phone on stage and gave him a call, letting the fans shout out their well-wishes.
Justin surprised Britney on her own MTV special. The look of sheer shock and delight on their faces is adorable.
To the delight of both shippers and fans worried over inter-group relations, JC and Chris were reported to have spent Thanksgiving together back in 2004. The news came directly from Chris' mother via email correspondence with the moderator of a Chris/NSYNC based internet message board.
"I guess you could tell them that the Chasez family and Chris's family had Thanksgiving together at Chris's house this year. It wasa [sic] great time. Chris and Josh definately [sic] enjoyed catching up on a few things, and spent a lot of time cutting up."
There were also several rumors of Chris, JC, and Justin spending the 4th of July together the following year.
When Lance released his first solo single, JC was the first to lend his support on Twitter and at the release party. In turn, Lance lent his support to JC's Girl Radical project.
They were apparently very supportive of the Backstreet Boys when AJ announced he was entering rehab. According to a fan reports from the 2001 Teen Choice Awards, which took place shortly after AJ's announcement, the guys were seen offering hugs and reassurances to Nick, the only Backstreet Boy in attendance.
