Bieber has long been compared to the former 'NSYNC star, and even paid homage to the thrilled 31-year-old by covering his hit song 'Cry Me a River' on his Believe tour. There are many reasons why the Canadian sensation admires JT, as he explained to MTV News last year.

"He was young, and he did it and he was really amazing and had such amazing music," Bieber said when asked about Timberlake's influence on his sound. "I can't say I would be upset when someone compares me to him -- I just feel like my music is going a completely different route. But definitely, hat goes off to him."
