Oprah's getting up close and personal with three of the world's biggest music superstars…including first-time guest Justin Timberlake!

Justin got his first taste of fame at an early age on shows like Star Search and The New Mickey Mouse Club. As a teenager, Justin—known as JT to his fans—sang and danced his way into the hearts of millions as a member of *NSYNC, a chart-topping boy band that sold millions of records worldwide.

In 2002, Justin struck out on his own and released Justified, his first solo album. It went on to sell more than 7 million copies worldwide, making him one of the hottest acts in the music business.

Now, this Tennessee native is "bringing sexy back" with his latest CD, Future Sex/Love Sounds. In 2006, his first single off the album, "SexyBack," soared to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and stayed on top for seven weeks!

"So you brought sexy back," Oprah says. "Where had it gone?"

"The funniest thing about that song was, originally, it wasn't going to be titled 'SexyBack,'" Justin says. "We didn't know what we were going to call it, and that was sort of an ad lib line that started off the actual writing of the song. Then I started playing it for a lot of different women … and they kept saying, 'That Sexy Back song.' And I was like, well, all right. It stuck to the wall."
