Justin Timberlake had a memorable Grammys moment

Justin Timberlake and Arturo Sandoval Even his involvement in the biggest televised scandal since Howard Dean’s scream hasn’t slowed down Justin Timberlake. Accepting his Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, Timberlake delivered a CBS-mandated apology for exposing Janet Jackson at the Super Bowl, and later returned to the stage to expose his now-undeniable talent. Not only did he ably play keyboards on an earthy version of his single ”Senorita,” but he successfully pitted his heretofore unheard scat-singing abilities against jazz trumpet master Arturo Sandoval’s improvisations. Sorry, Britney — it really was the best night of his life.
