'N Sync's Lance Bass has a brand-new gig! The boy bander, best known for his days alongside Justin Timberlake, Joey Fatone, Chris Kirkpatrick, and JC Chasez, is set to lend his pop culture expertise to Meredith Vieira's daytime talk show as a full-time Season 2 contributor, Us Weekly can exclusively reveal.

Debuting next month, Season 2 of the nationally-syndicated Meredith Vieira Show will air live from New York City's Rockefeller Center each weekday. SiriusXM "Dirty Pop Live" radio host Bass, 36, will help Vieira open each show and discuss the day's hot headlines alongside other panelists Lilliana Vazquez (founder of theLVGuide.com), Yamaneika Saunders (Oxygen's Funny Girls, Last Comic Standing), and Megan Colarossi (Today contributor).

"I'm excited to be returning live for our second season — uncut and unfiltered, anything can happen," Vieira told Us on Aug. 6 of her revamped chatfest. "With the new live format, we’ll be able to connect even more with our viewers and bring their voices into the discussion."
