Justin Timberlake is hands down the most successful artist to have come from a ’90s boy band. After their disbandment, the lead singer of ‘NSYNC became a breakout star in his own right, releasing his first solo album, Justified, in 2002 and going on to win the first two of his ten Grammy awards. After bringing sexy back with FutureSex/LoveSounds in 2006, Timberlake pursued acting, impressing fans with roles in Friends with Benefits and The Social Network, while also being invited to host Saturday Night Live a total of five times.
