Justin Timberlake on The Ellen DeGeneres Show 2003 Video

Everyone Needs to Take 5 to Watch JT's First Appearance on The Ellen Show 15 Years Ago

If you consider yourself Justin Timberlake's number one fan, you may have to stand in line behind Ellen DeGeneres. These days, the two stars share one of our favourite Hollywood friendships, but back in 2003, Ellen was a fan who just couldn't help gushing over JT in person. The singer made his first appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show nearly 15 years ago, and in this truly incredible clip from the episode, Ellen lets him know just how much she's obsessed with him . . . and his music . . . and his performances. (Same.)

It's fascinating to see how they interacted back in the day, particularly now that we're so used to their familiar, hilarious rapport. Over the years, Justin and Ellen's friendship has been in the spotlight whenever they attend events together, and more than once, they've presented each other with special awards. Ellen recently had the honour of speaking when *NSYNC received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and after the boy band reunited on her show, Ellen's team put together a cute compilation of her best onscreen moments with Justin, which you can watch below.

If I wasn't over the term #friendshipgoals, I'd say it, but . . . actually, yeah. #friendshipgoals
