Justin Timberlake gets emotional over young fan's gift

Justin Timberlake fought back tears when a young male fan gave him an early Christmas present during his concert in New York on Sunday night (14Dec14).

The Suit & Tie hitmaker's gig at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn attracted celebrity fans including Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Jay Z, who briefly joined him onstage, but it was a 10-year-old fan in the audience who made Timberlake's night.


During the singer's 20/20 Experience concert, Timberlake noticed the young boy who was dressed in a white tuxedo, and the youngster handed the pop star a small box.


Timberlake opened the box and found a bow tie, which he called the "greatest gift ever", and as the star held the gift up to his neck, the young fan began to cry, which prompted Timberlake to exclaim, "Now your mom's mad at me!"


He continued to gush over the gift, and said, "A gentleman can never have too many bow ties. I might have to wear that on Christmas Day."


Timberlake went towards the back of the stage to put the present down, and was clearly overcome with emotion, telling the fan, "I love you, kiddo. You're the coolest dude here."


He then admitted to the audience, "S**t, that got me," and went on with the show.
