Michael Strahan had his co-stars in stitches at the start of Thursday's Good Morning America, as he showcased his singing skills live on the show. 

The former NFL champion proved he's a fan of NSYNC as he read the daily headlines at the start of the show, providing a voiceover as the segment cut to the boy band teasing new music. 

"It's going to be," he sang, before telling viewers: "Fans are losing their minds over more NSYNC news," as the band confirmed their new song, Better Place, their first single in 22 years.

As the news segment cut back to the studio, a slightly red faced Michael told his co-stars Rebecca Jarvis - who is filling in for Robin Roberts, and George Stephanopoulos: "I didn't have my tea before I did that, I needed to warm up my voice," he said, as Rebecca and George burst out laughing. 

The dad-of-four is no stranger to poking fun of himself, and often shares fun updates on social media. He is always the first to get involved in dance videos with his teenage daughters, Sophia and Isabella, 18, featured on TikTok.
