Justin Timberlake surprises Super Bowl selfie kid on Ellen

Timberlake said, "It's nice to meet you, finally".

After being the subject of multiple GIFS and memes, Selfie Kid was formally introduced by Ellen DeGeneres to her audience.

The teen was a few rows behind Timberlake when he appeared in the section, but that didn't stop McKenna from trying to stand with him.

McKenna, from Scituate, Massachusetts, was already living his dream, attending the Super Bowl to cheer on his beloved New England Patriots.

Before Ellen ended the segment and threw to commercial, Timberlake signed off by saying, "Ryan, I look forward to meeting you and our second selfie together". For the February 9 episode, Ryan McKenna, AKA the Super Bowl selfie kid, stopped by to chat with Ellen Degeneres, 60.

"The lady told us we were in a good section, but we didn't know Justin would be there", he said.

And he had no idea that Justin would be near his location except for the clue that an attendant said they were in "special seats".

"I just started crying", McKenna said.

The artist explained, "Basically, I knew that I wanted to end the performance with 'Can't Stop the Feeling!' because I knew how people respond to that song". "I had to get the camera back up to get the selfie". "It just shut off", McKenna said.

Then DeGeneres dropped the bomb.

When Ellen joked that Ryan will now forever be part of Justin's life and "he'll send you money", the singer laughed before revealing a generous gesture which left the teenager in tears. "Do you have anything at all for him, Justin?".

"Because all of this has happened, I thought to myself, I really want to meet you properly", Timberlake said.

But the biggest surprise came when JT invited McKenna and his family to see him perform live in concert in Boston with VIP tickets.

You guessed it, Timberlake chimes in with a simple, "Ryan", and McKenna immediately becomes overwhelmed with emotion.
