Not only are these men supposedly reuniting, but Justin Timberlake is receiving the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, the Lifetime Achievement Award for this award show. Past winners have included:
1984-David Bowie, The Beatles
1991-Bon Jovi (the year the award was renamed from Video Vanguard to its current name)
1992-Guns N' Roses
1993-Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones
1998-LL Cool J
2000 Red Hot Chili Peppers
This award was not given out every year, but the artists who have won this lifetime achievement have had an impact on music videos in a tremendous way. The way award is named after the "King of Pop," Michael Jackson whose Thriller video changed the face of music videos, and has created a benchmark for greatness.
Over the years as part of N'Sync, or solo Timberlake has created some incredibly memorable music videos. As a part of N'Sync there were numerous like the dancing puppetry in "Bye Bye Bye" the wonderfully edited "Pop" and even the hilariously cheesy "I Drive Myself Crazy" where they are all in straight jackets. As a solo artist Just has appeared to move beyond the bubble gum pop, and with videos like for "Cry Me a River" "Sexyback" and this years "Mirror" Timberlake enters the pantheon of great music video artists. I will now watch Sunday to see this man honored, and hopefully see a fun reunion with his former group mates.
