Battle of the Hot Justins
Which Justin reigns supreme?
We watched Justin Timberlake become a superstar before our very eyes — from boybander to solo artist to leading man. With his new movie In Time out today, the Celebuzz staff couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate his success than to show y’all how far he’s come.

We’ve uncovered this ancient footage of a young Justin dressed a cowboy. Yee-haw! He’s just 11-years-old in the clip and going by the name “Justin Randall” *skip to about two minutes in to see his performance*

In this vintage video, he’s performing on the pre-Idol singing competition Star Search. Little JT stops his boots and tips his hat. It’s seriously the cutest.

Celebuzz recently caught up with Justin to talk about his new film. The cowboy hat would have been a nice touch. Maybe next time!
