AceShowbiz - %cJustin Timberlake% was feted at the Memphis Music Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. The %cNSYNC% star was introduced by best pal, %cJimmy Fallon%, at the Cannon Center on Saturday, October 17 in Memphis, Tennessee.
The singer-turned-actor got emotional during his acceptance speech, "I am truly honored to be able to stand on the shoulders of all these legends that I grew up listening to and I grew up admiring to say that I stand alongside them now."
"This is the f*cking coolest thing that has ever happened to me," he said. "The Grammys are political. The Emmys are political. Memphis is not political. And don't get me started on Hollywood."
The Memphis-born musician also paid tribute to his root, "My favorite part about this city is we don't apologize for who we are, and that's who this city has taught me to be."
Decked out in a Tom Ford suit, Timberlake collaborated with R&B icon %cSam Moore% on "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay".
