Justin Timberlake Inducted Into Memphis Music Hall of Fame

Justin Timberlake Inducted Into Memphis Music Hall of Fame

Justin Timberlake was inducted into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame on Saturday night, and gave a touching speech thanking his wife, Jessica Biel, and the other inductees (including Alberta Hunter, Scotty Moore and Al Jackson).

The multi-talented artist took to the stage at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts in Memphis, Tennessee to accept his honor after an introduction by his friend, Jimmy Fallon.

“This is the f**king coolest thing that has ever happened to me,” the singer said.

“I wanna thank all the great artists in this hall,” he continued, as he began to choke back tears. “I’m truly honored, to merely stand on the shoulders of all these legends I grew up listening to, and I grew up admiring, to say that I stand alongside them now.”

Timberlake also took some time to thank his “beautiful, loving and incredibly understanding of her husband’s shortcomings” wife, Biel.

“Baby, I love you more than I could put into words and more than any song I could ever write,” he said, going on to call her his “rock.”

During the induction ceremony, Timberlake performed a rendition of “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay” with fellow inductee Sam Moore of Sam & Dave, the Associated Press reports.
