As we reported on Sunday, the Yeezus artist was awarded the Video Vanguard Award where he gave an EXTREMELY long speech which included a seemingly random name drop of JT.
But how does the former *NSYNC member come into play?!
In 2007, the boybander — along with Gnarls Barkley — were nominated for Album Of The Year at the Grammys but both lost to the Dixie Chicks.
Mr. West said that Jessica Biel's husband "had tears in his eyes" after losing.
Mr. Timberlake went on Twitter that very night and reacted to his unexpected mention.
A night full of stars!
At this point Taylor Swift is pretty much known for having at least one special guest come out on stage during every show on her 1989 tour.
Well now she quite a few stars more to add to that list as she not only got the chance to sing You Oughtta Know with none other than Alanis Morissette but she sang Goodbye Earl with Natalie Maines from the Dixie Chicks!
Oh yeah, AND Ellen DeGeneres came on stage in a silver one-piece to get her groove on during Taylor's performance of Style.
Suki Waterhouse was also in the crowd and posted a sweet video to Instagram thanking the 25-year-old singer for a great night!
Ch-ch-check out all the performances, Ellen dancing on stage with Tay-Tay as well as Kate and Jessica's sweet snaps with their kids (below)!
WOW! This is truly impressive!
They're all so amazing in their own rights, but this one absolutely takes the cake!
Plus, it TOTALLY reminds us of what could have been!
Ya know, if Mileybird had stuck with her country roots, this is EXACTLY what Wrecking Ball would have sounded like!
We're sure hope Miley approves of this cover because it's incredible!!!!
Take a listen to the reworking by the Dixie Chicks…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Here's a treat for all you country guys and gals!
If you didn't get your fill last night at the CMT Music Awards, then this EXCLUSIVE nugget of new music will get your boots ready for kickin'!
The post-Dixie Chicks group Court Yard Hounds, which features sisters Emily Robison and Martie Maguire, has a new album coming out this July. The ladies' sophomore effort, Amelita, promises to be a real delight for fans of their old and new music. How do we know? Oh, maybe because we've gotten our hand on the FIRST LISTEN of their title track!
Aw, what the hell! Let's spread the wealth! Check out the track (below) and don't forget to pick up the album on July 16! Tell'em Perez sent ya!
Amazing! Absolutely AH-Mazing!!
Equal parts nostalgic, goofy, and seXXXy, Tyler Marcum's interpretive dance to Landslide is the HIGHlight of our week!
A decade later, Tyler attempts to recapture the magic!!!
Ch-ch-check out his adorably endearing homage to his capricious youth (above)!
Aww! What a fitting tribute for a song that so beautifully laments the inevitable passage of time!!
Also, this dude is a friggin' hottie who only gets better with age!!
We cannot wait to see Tyler at 40, LOLz!!
A little over a month later, and she’s officially released her music video for the song!! We couldn't be more thrilled!!!
The muted colors and black-and-white segments give the video a vintage vibe, which we totes adore, and Natalie looks rocker yet country yet cutsie pie all at once!!
We’ve been hankering to hear more from this inspiring gal ever since she announced her solo album Mother, and we’re glad she seems to be back in full force!!!
Ch-ch-check it out! (above)
Wonderful news, y'all!
Former Dixie Chicks frontwoman Natalie Maines — whose voice is always infused with POWER and passion — has decided to record a solo album and is calling it Mother!!
Take a good long listen to the album's first single Without You (above).
SO nice to hear those sweet, southern vocals singing new material once more. We've had a Natalie Maines sized hole in our heart for too long!
Mother smashes into digital and physical shelves May 7th… SO excited to gobble up allll of Natalie's musical treats!
