Over the last few months, there have been a handful of reunions between artists, actors, and friend groups. Most recently, it was S Club 7 announcing they would reunite and perform at the 2014 Children In Need appeal.
One Tree Hill reunited in Paris. Friends reunited on Jimmy Kimmel. And that's all wonderful and made us happier than ever, but come ON, we need more. NSYNC reuniting at the 2013 MTV VMAs was not enough. It was more like punishment, to see them back together again for 5 minutes, only to have it taken away. Also, we think a reunion should be more than just taking a selfie together or singing 1 song. We're demanding news albums, new episodes, sequels - the works!
Look, Justin Timberlake, if it takes me and the millions of other NSYNC fans writing you personal letters to just agree to a reunion already, would that be cool?
2. Lizzie McGuire
I might almost be 24, but I still have A LOT of life lessons I need to learn from Lizzie & co.
3. The Mickey Mouse Club
Look at that, an opportunity for Justin and Britney to reunite, and a 2nd chance for Justin and JC to reunite!
4. Mean Girls
We're talking Plastics reunion, baby. Including Amy Poehler.
5. Kenan & Kel
I'm looking directly at you Saturday Night Live. You had to chance to reunite these two and didn't. What were you thinking?!
6. But actually, how about an entire All That reunion:
Once Amanda Bynes is feeling better, obviously.
7. Harry Potter
These guys are all obviously still friends, and support each other at play and film premieres, but we need more. It's been 3 years and we're suffering through post-Potter withdrawals. How about several more movies?
8. Full House
Danny, Jesse, and Joey reunite all the time (they're besties, duh) and there has been a few reunions in the past - except the most important actors were missing! Dear Mary-Kate and Ashley, please make it to the next reunion, love the fans who grew up wanting to be twins just like you.
9. Saved By The Bell
Another one with a partial reunion. If the whole Bayside gang isn't there, then it's not a reunion. Dustin Diamond, sort out your feelings for the sake of the fans!
10. Destiny's Child
Very much like the 'NSYNC situation. Please change ASAP.
What reunion of these would you love to the see the most? Tweet us your suggestions for other reunions you want!

Taylor Swift has thanked fans who attended four low-key album listening sessions in the U.S. and England for agreeing to keep details of her new release top secret. The pop star invited 89 fans to each of her mystery parties in Nashville, Tennessee, Los Angeles, Rhode Island and London and then thrilled them all by showing up and playing her latest release, 1989, for them weeks before it went on sale.
The Love Story singer then asked each one of her guests not to reveal information about the album or her new songs before the CD hit the market on Sunday (26Oct14) at midnight.
She says, "We would spend just hours together, me playing my album for them, essentially, in my living room, and explaining to them what I wrote it about.
"That's hundreds of people who have heard the entire thing (album) and you can't find any information they've given online about it."
Swift's latest "secret sessions" listening party was streamed live from a Manhattan, New York rooftop on Monday night (27Oct14).
The singer performed five songs from the new album with the Empire State Building providing a backdrop and a very special light show.
The Yahoo Live and iHeartRadio-broadcasted performance opened with Welcome to New York, and featured the songs Out of the Woods, Style and Blank Space, before she finished the sky-high set with her hit Shake It Off.
New York's Cmj Music Marathon has been disrupted amid fears an Ebola patient visited one of the event's venues. Dr. Craig Spencer was the first person to be diagnosed with Ebola in New York after he travelled back from treating patients suffering with the deadly disease in Guinea.
On Wednesday night (22Oct14), he travelled from Harlem to Brooklyn and visited a music venue and bowling alley, believed to be either The Gutter or Brooklyn Bowl, before being hospitalised on Thursday (23Oct14).
Both venues are participating in the annual CMJ Music Marathon, which showcases more than 1,400 live performances in 80 New York bars through one week of October.
Despite ambiguity over which venue Spencer attended, The Gutter bosses opted to shut their doors as an extra safety precaution, forcing bands including Heaven, The Big Sleep, Sun Club and Friend Roulette to cancel their CMJ performances.
A spokesperson for The Gutter posted on its Facebook.com page on Friday (24Oct14), "We voluntarily decided to close The Gutter yesterday evening as a precautionary measure while we gathered more information. We are working with the NYC Health Department to have the bar cleaned and sanitized under their supervision and expect to be open sometime today after that is completed. Doctors advising the Health Department have told us that our staff and customers were at no risk."
More than 4,000 victims of Ebola have died since the outbreak hit West Africa earlier this year (14), with Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria among the worst affected countries.
Celebrities including Britney Spears, Pharrell Williams, Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran helped raise $23.2 million (£14.5 million) during the U.K. Stand Up To Cancer telethon on Friday (17Oct14).
The "Toxic" hitmaker took part in a sketch called "Andy Murray: The Movie", in which celebrities were auditioning for parts in the upcoming biopic of the Scottish tennis player's life. Spears tried out for the role of Murray's girlfriend Kim Sears with a fake Cockney accent, while Williams tried a Scottish twang as he auditioned for Murray. Others trying out for parts included Ed Sheeran, who played "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" by Scottish group The Proclaimers, while Andy Serkis filmed his audition in a motion capture suit. Swift took on British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver for a 'bake it off' competition sketch, where they were supposed to each make a chocolate cake. However, Oliver began singing and dancing to a revamped version of her new single Shake It Off and the pair ended up pulling funny moves and throwing food around.
British rocker Noel Gallagher teamed up with supermodels Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell for a celebrity version of Gogglebox, where viewers are filmed watching TV. The trio watched reality shows such as Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor and gave a comedic running commentary. Also during the broadcast, Martin Clunes and Neil Morrissey revived their Men Behaving Badly characters for the first time in 16 years for a one-off sketch about testicular cancer. Will Ferrell appeared as his Anchorman character Ron Burgundy, giving a news report on cancer, Sherlock star Martin Freeman took part in a magic card trick with celebrity illusionist Derren Brown, and Nicole Scherzinger and John Legend were interviewed during a live taping of chat show Alan Carr: Chatty Man. At the end of the live telethon, $23.2 million had been raised for Cancer Research U.K.
Shia Labeouf was so drunk he thought he was at a party when he disrupted a New York theatre performance in June (14). The Transformers star was arrested at Manhattan venue Studio 54 after interrupting a performance of Cabaret, smoking in the venue, and scuffling with cops outside.
He later pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was ordered to complete six months of alcohol rehabilitation treatment, and the actor has now recalled his night of shame, revealing he was so drunk he thought he was attending a party and was simply joining in the fun.
Speaking on U.S. chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday (13Sep14), LaBeouf admits that after drinking huge amounts of whisky, he was invited to see Cabaret by a dancer he met in the street.
He says, "I'm walking towards the (theatre) and now the drunk is really kicking in. I'm really good and drunk at this point. I get into the theatre and it's set up like an old club... They have tables and there's all these women in burlesque and I'm like, 'Oh, this really is some kind of party or something'... Now I'm drinking these drinks and the show starts and out comes Alan Tuding... Alan Cumming. It could have been Allen Iverson at this point. He's smoking a cigarette and so I go, 'Oh, it's that kind of party. Perfect. I want to have a cigarette too.' So I pull this cigarette out and I'm smoking a cigarette and these women want nothing to do with me. Nobody wants nothing to do with me, but I don't care. I'm just seeing Allen Iverson in leather pants and saying this is the craziest show I've ever seen."
LaBeouf insists he even thought the police who arrived to arrest him were all part of the fun, adding, "I see six cops having their own party and anyways, they end up taking me to the station. I get to the station and I quickly realise, I'm not supposed to be here. I'm not made for this set up."
Amanda Bynes' mother has been left stunned and saddened by accusations her husband sexually abused the embattled actress when she was a child.
The Hairspray star, who was hospitalized for mental health treatment last year (13), took to her Twitter.com blog on Friday morning (10Oct14) and hit out at her dad Rick, alleging he acted inappropriately with her for years. In a series of posts, she wrote, "My dad was verbally and physically abuse (sic) to me as a child... I need to tell the truth about my dad... He called me ugly as a child and then asked me if I wanted to have sex with him and i did not know how to respond and I said no and then I was forced to live with my dad which was a total nightmare... "My dad fondled himself in front of me so many times that i started recording him on my phone in hopes of catching him saying or doing something inappropriate around me so I could get him arrested & put in jail for the rest of his perverted life."
She went on to claim that her mother, Lynn, was aware of her husband's alleged behaviour and did nothing to stop it. Bynes continued, "My mom knows that my father's literally and physically incestual towards his own daughter and the fact that she never called the police on Him embarrasses me to no end".
The 28 year old concluded the damning post by claiming she is seeking a protective order to prevent her father from coming anywhere near her again, adding, "I am meeting with a lawyer to get a restraining order against my dad... I cannot hear the sound of His incestually charged voice ever again and I'm just being honest... I will not be manipulated or brainwashed by anyone anymore". Now her mother has spoken out about the star's claims, revealing she's "heartbroken" for her husband of 47 years. In a statement released by her lawyer, Tamar Arminak, Lynn says, "Rick has been the best father and husband a family can ask for. He has never abused Amanda or our other children physically or sexually. These accusations are absolutely horrible and could not be further from the truth! "These allegations stem from Amanda's mental state at the moment. They have no basis in reality. It saddens me beyond belief that my husband's character could be slandered in such a way."
Bynes' Twitter rant came amid reports suggesting her concerned parents were planning an intervention to have her committed to a mental health facility in the New York area. The actress learned of her mom and dad's plans early on Friday and headed to New York's LaGuardia Airport in a bid to flee the state and perhaps the country. However, she was escorted out of the building after losing her temper and shouting at a ticket agent, according to TMZ.com.
Bynes returned to her adopted New York last week (ends03Oct14), shortly after she was arrested for DUI in California. She has been hitting the headlines for her bizarre behavior in the Big Apple, where she reportedly lashed out at a fan during a night out on Monday (06Oct14) and was accused of shoplifting from top department store Barneys New York on Wednesday (08Oct14). She denied attempting to steal a $200 (£125) hat and branded the incident a "misunderstanding".
Her parents recently admitted they had had no idea of Bynes' whereabouts since their conservatorship ended in early September (14). The couple took charge of its daughter's affairs last year (13) after a series of headline-grabbing legal and behavioural issues landed the actress in a psychiatric hospital. Since her release, Bynes, who was living with her parents in California, had been able to keep herself out of trouble and the headlines - until her recent DUI arrest.
Pop diva Mariah Carey disappointed fans on the opening night of her Elusive Chanteuse World Tour on Saturday (04Oct14) as she struggled to hit the right notes throughout the gig.
The Hero hitmaker launched her new trek at Tokyo's Makuhari Messe Arena in Japan, where fans were quick to notice that Carey's usually flawless vocals were not up to par. In a number of videos posted online, Carey can be heard attempting - and subsequently failing - to reach the high notes in some of her hit songs, with her voice cracking. In one video, she even seemed to have forgotten the lyrics to her popular track We Belong Together, and to make matters worse, she noted that her microphone stand had broken while she was performing onstage.
As the footage circulated online, fans have been critical of Carey, whose latest album, Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse only sold around 58,000 copies in the U.S. during its first week on sale in May (14). Carey, who recently separated from husband Nick Cannon, will continue her tour through mid-November (14) with stops in Southeast Asia and Australia.
Comedienne Sarah Silverman paid tribute to Joan Rivers over the weekend (04Oct14) by portraying the late comic on U.S. sketch show Saturday Night Live. The A Million Ways to Die in the West star donned a short, blonde wig and a burgundy fur coat to impersonate Rivers as she hosted a Hollywood roast in heaven.
In the skit, Silverman, as Rivers, poked fun at late celebrities including Eva Gardner, Richard Pryor and Freddie Mercury, who was portrayed by Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.
Rivers passed away following a routine throat surgery last month (Sep14) in New York.
Actress Ellen Pompeo kept the news about her baby's birth a secret for two months. The Grey's Anatomy star announced the news that she and husband Chris Ivery had welcomed a baby girl, named Sienna May, via surrogate on Thursday (02Oct14) and took to Twitter.com to thank her TV castmates for keeping the exciting news to themselves.
And, appearing on late-night U.S. chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! hours later, Pompeo revealed just how long she kept the baby news from the media.
She explained, "She was born two months ago. Pretty good, right?
"The Mayor of New York City married us and I kept that a secret for five days, so I've done it before. The covert thing is kinda fun.
"This baby was born via surrogate so I felt an obligation to keep the surrogate's privacy - that was of utmost importance to me."
Pompeo also went into detail about the process she and Ivery - and the mystery surrogate - went through to get pregnant.
The actress told host Kimmel, "Chris Ivery has to do what he has to do and provide what he has to provide, and then I have to provide something as well... I have to retrieve the egg, and then they put it together in a dish, the lab technicians, and then they make the embryo and then they insert the embryo into the woman who will carry the child.
"This is an incredible thing to do with your life - to give the gift of carrying someone's child. I am forever grateful and feel very blessed.
"I was present for the insemination. I held her hand... I looked into the microscope and I saw the embryo... and we prayed and we talked to God... and now we have a gorgeous baby girl."
Pompeo and Ivery are also parents to daughter Stella Luna, who was a natural birth in 2009.
Actress Chloe Grace Moretz had an awkward moment on live TV in America on Monday night (22Sep14) when a fan called in to a rowdy talk show to ask her if she is more than friends with David Beckham's son Brooklyn.
The 17-year-old actress has been linked to the eldest Beckham boy, 15, for weeks, but she has dodged the question at every opportunity. However, when a fan called in to Watch What Happens Live and asked her to confirm or deny the rumours, the Kick-Ass star squirmed in her seat and said, "That's naughty, that's a naughty question."
Moretz added, "I don't know, he's a very good guy, he's a good person. I enjoy hanging out with him."
Host Andy Cohen then asked the actress if she had met Brooklyn's fashion designer mum Victoria Beckham, to which she responded, "She's an amazing person; I really admire her work ethic. I love her (clothing) line. As a family, they're awesome people." When asked if she gets a discount on Beckham's clothing, Moretz chuckled, "I haven't tried yet. I'm gonna try that this week."
