7. Pals For Over 10 Years
They first met one another at the MTV Video Awards back in 2002. At the time, Jimmy Fallon was a Saturday Night Live cast member and Justin was starting his solo career after being in the band ‘NSYNC. Fallon reminisced about when they first met and he said they kind of bonded over the shared pressure of that night as Fallon was hosting the awards for the first time that night and Justin was performing by himself without the backup of his band. “I remember talking backstage during those VMAs. I was totally nervous and you were nervous and we both ended up having a good night. We’re good luck to each other – like each other’s rabbit foots,” Fallon said. How adorable! Things came full circle in 2013 when Jimmy Fallon presented Justin Timberlake with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award and gave a heartfelt introduction to his best buddy.
