Justin Timberlake will perform and be honored with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards, set for August 25 in New York.
The Video Vanguard Award, also known as the Lifetime Achievement Award, is given to musicians who have made a profound effect on the MTV culture. The award was renamed in 1991 as the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award . The honor is also given to music video directors who have created some of the most popular and acclaimed music videos in MTV history.
Timberlake joins a prestigious list of past recipients that includes Madonna, Bon Jovi and the Beastie Boys.
Currently promoting his latest album, “The 20/20 Experience”, Justin is a 14-time VMA winner, second only to Madonna.
Timberlake wraps up his “Legends Of The Summer” tour with Jay Z on Friday in Miami; he’ll play Rock In Rio and London’s iTunes Festival next month before launching a new North American tour on October 31 in Montreal.
