Justin Timberlake made Corporal Kelsey De Santis' dream come true for a second time on 2 June after taking the US marine as his date to the Guys Choice Awards, almost seven months after he escorted her to a Marine Corps ball.
Kelsey invited Timberlake to be her date for the Instructor Battalion party in Virginia via a video post on YouTube.com in July 2011. He accepted and joined her at the bash in November 2011, later admitting that the event was "one of the most moving evenings" he had ever experienced.
JT decided to return the favour by asking Kelsey to accompany him to the Spike TV ceremony in Los Angeles this weekend, when he was honoured as Entertainer of the Year and presented with the Troops' Choice prize.
Accepting the latter award, Justin said, "It's amazing actually to be standing on stage with these American heroes. As some of you know I'm usually a wisea**, but in all seriousness, I can tell you receiving this award from our troops is seriously one of the greatest honours that I or any American could receive."
And the SexyBack hitmaker, who is engaged to wed actress Jessica Biel, definitely had De Kelsey's vote.
She told Eonline.com, "He's a genuine person. There's no doubt in my mind (he deserves this award)."
