Justin Timberlake will induct Madonna into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the organization's March 10 ceremony, a rep for the Hall confirmed to MTV News Tuesday 26 February.
Perhaps Timberlake is returning a favor from his 27th birthday last month, when Madonna presented him with a cupcake and champagne and sang him 'Happy Birthday' on the set of the video for her song '4 Minutes to Save the World.' The track features JT as well as Timbaland; the two collaborated on several songs for Madonna's forthcoming LP.
Other inductors include Tom Hanks (for '60s group the Dave Clark Five - appropriate because he played the manager of a similar group in the 1996 film 'That Thing You Do'), Lou Reed (for folk legend Leonard Cohen), Billy Joel (for John Mellencamp), Ben Harper (for blues harmonica player Little Walter), Jerry Butler (for legendary soul producers Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff) and John Fogerty (for instrumental group the Ventures).
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony will take place at New York's Waldorf Astoria hotel on March 10.
