FORMER NSYNC singer Joey Fatone suffered an unfortunate mishap as he danced in the opening number to Monday’s Dancing With The Stars.
The 42-year-old, who came second on DWTS in 2007, split his trousers as he attacked a leap across the studio with a little too much gusto.
The Bye Bye Bye singer tore up his pants mid-air during a jump, as he performed to Tearing Up My Heart to kick off the boy and girl band themed episode.
At the end of the dance, co-host Erin Andrews asked how he did not split his pants, but Fatone admitted that he had and saw the funny side.
“Oh, it is!” Fatone joked.
He was reminded of the incident as he took his place on the judging panel to pass comment on James Van Der Beek’s dance.

“By the way, for those of you recording the show, you might want to freeze it at the jump Joey Fatone [did], because I think that’s when the pants split, right?” Bergeron asked.
“Yup. That is accurate. There’s a nice breeze,” Fatone admitted.
Spice Girls singer Emma Bunton was originally supposed to have guested alongside Fatone on Monday’s episode.
However, she backed out at the last minute because of a “scheduling conflict” according to the show’s Twitter feed.
