Awww, just when we’d kinda almost - shame on us - forgotten about our love for Mr Justin Timberlake, he pops up to receive an award, gets gushy about his wife and a little weepy too. And we all let out a collective ‘ahhhhh’ and love him all over again. JT was inducted into his native Memphis Music Hall of Fame on Saturday night by his close friend Jimmy Fallon, who described himself as ‘Mrs Timberlake’. ‘This is the f****** coolest thing that has ever happened to me!’ Justin said as he took to the stage.

In his speech, which lasted nearly 20 minutes, the 34-year-old former NSync star visibly choked up on a number of occasions, and had to wipe tears from his eyes, before thanking his wife, Jessica Biel, the mother of his 6-month son, Silas. Describing Jessica, 33, as his ‘beautiful, loving and incredibly understanding of her husband’s shortcomings,’ he said, ‘Baby, I love you more than I could put into words and more than any song I could ever write.’

He also said, ‘I wanna thank all the great artists in this hall. I’m truly honoured to merely stand on the shoulders of all these legends I grew up listening to, and I grew up admiring.’ Later Justin performed covers of Al Green and Otis Redding to the audience at the city’s Cannon Center for the performing arts. Earlier in the night, when introducing his pal, Jimmy Fallon said, ‘As his friend I could tell you that this is such a big honour for Justin and it couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy. He’s given us so much amazing music over the years. I’m talking ‘Cry Me a River.’ ‘SexyBack,’ ‘Suit and Tie,’ ‘Mirrors,’ ‘D*** in a Box!’ That’s right, he was the first Justin whose d*** went viral. Sorry, Bieber.’
