Justin Timberlake serenades Ellen DeGeneres

Justin Timberlake took time away from rehearsing for the Super Bowl LII halftime show and his upcoming tour to wish Ellen DeGeneres a happy 60th birthday.

JT and his backup band, the Tennessee Kids, sent Ellen lovely flowers because they couldn’t be there in person. He wanted to make sure he was given his share of credit — all of it.

A surprise birthday appearance, flowers, and a song … what else could Ellen want for her birthday?

Oh, nothing major — just a Super Bowl shout-out.

During the halftime show, Justin will be performing for millions around the world, but despite that pressure, Ellen wanted to make sure she knows he is thinking about her by giving her some sort of gesture.

Justin suggested a simple tug of the ear, while Ellen had bigger plans.

Ellen then began to pat her shoulders several times like a third-base coach in baseball.

Justin said, “This is either the Macarena or the Three Amigos.”

Ellen wasn’t done yet: She asked that her shout-out end with a sexy rub of his tummy, which Justin took from creepy to sensual.

Happy birthday, Ellen!
