About Justin Timberlake
Justin Randall Timberlake was born on 31 January, 1981 in Memphis, Tennessee. In his early singing career, Timberlake performed country music songs on Star Search as "Justin Randall". In 1993, he joined The Mickey Mouse Club and met future pop superstar girlfriend Britney Spears and performers Christina Aguilera, and NSYNC member JC Chasez. When the show ended in 1995, Timberlake and Chasez, together with Lance bass, Joey Fatone, and Chris Kirkpatrick, came together to form the boy band NSYNC. The band enjoyed great success but, under his own admission,Timberlake was to blame for the eventual break-up of NSYNC, and he went on to a glittering solo career. Timberlake's first single, "Like I Love You", from the album Justified, debuted at Number 2 on the Billboard 200 music chart in 2002 and the following Justin Timberlake concert tour sold out in mere minutes. The famous "wardrobe malfunction" incident during halftime at the 2004 Superbowl put the "sexy" star back in the limelight again causing a spike in sales. Timberlake and Jackson were forced to apologize at the Grammy Awards for their part in the controversial incident, while Justin received two honors for Best Pop Vocal Album, and Best Pop Vocal Performance. In January 2007, Timberlake began his FutureSex/LoveShow tour, arguably one of his most successful tours to date. Since then, Justin has collaborated Madonna, Duran Duran and Timbaland. Timberlake then starred in the Mike Myers movie The Love Guru and collaborated with T.I. and Ciara while performing during multiple appearances on Saturday Night Live. Currently, Justin Timberlake tickets are on sale for the 20/20 Experience World Tour.
