Long before Justin Timberlake brought SexyBack or said Bye Bye Bye to NSYNC, he was just your average everyday kid. Who also happened to be a Mouseketeer.
Ok, so his childhood was just a tad different from ours! But here's something you probably didn't know about JT. He was the 1995 Memphis spelling bee CHAMPION!!
That's right! Justin mastered the art of spelling at age 14 and defeated all other spellers that stood in his way!
Don't believe us? Check out the proof for yourself (above)!
So what word did he have to spell to be crowned the champ?? Emerald….
Hmmm. That seems a bit easy considering the Scripps National Spelling Bee Champion, Arvind Mahankali, had to spell "knaidel" to win the top prize! LOLz!
Oh well! You're still the B-E-S-T in our books, Justin!
