While McKenna's name may not be familiar, anyone who watched Justin Timberlake's halftime show saw Timberlake take to the stands during his performance of "Can't Stop the Feeling" and snap a selfie with a young man.
"There was no hologram, the images and sounds of Prince singing the song with Timberlake made it into something of a disembodied duet". "Put two fingers in the air for Prince tonight", Timberlake shouted to the crowd.
The 13-year-old became a viral meme after struggling to take a selfie with Justin Timberlake during the singer's halftime performance on Sunday. Other than the Prince moment, there were no big-name special guests or cameo appearances.
"I just started crying", McKenna said. "I pushed through. I was elbowing people, but I got there". So it just shut off, and that's why all the memes formed'.
This makes us question: When is Timberlake's TD Garden show, because we want to see his and McKenna's second selfie. After the host chatted with him about his moment in the spotlight, DeGeneres revealed that she had yet another surprise for McKenna. DeGeneres also asked him if he knew that Timberlake would be entering his section for his "Can't Stop the Feeling" finale. "Yeah, so, all the memes, I've seen those", he told DeGeneres.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Ryan and Justin's "meeting" on Ellen? "Because it was so unexpected that you came down and because all of this has happened, I thought to myself, 'I really want to meet you properly, '" Timberlake said.
"Thank you so much!" DeGeneres then let McKenna know that thanks to the National Football League, he and his family would be getting a VIP experience at a New England Patriots home game next season, with four tickets to a game and four pregame field passes.
McKenna and his family also received a gift basket from the New England Patriots and the National Football League, which included game tickets, field passes and some team gear.
