Justin Timberlake’s career spans almost every kind of entertainment. But you might not know what a powerful entertainer he’d become just by watching the little kid in a cowboy hat sing on “Star Search.”
Like other ‘90s singing children who went on “Star Search,” Timberlake would become a member of “The Mickey Mouse Club.” He first reached musical fame as a member of NSYNC. He was able to launch his own successful solo career after that band began losing momentum; he churned out hit after big hit.
His charm seeped through in sketches on “Saturday Night Live,” and it became pretty obvious he had some acting chops as well. Now he can basically do whatever he wants, including, you know, halftime at the Super Bowl, if he feels like it.
