LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Justin Timberlake is a man of his word.
The multi-talented star made good on his promise to attend the Marine Corps Ball with Corporal Kelsey De Santis in Richmond, VA, on Saturday night, according to the city’s local news station, WTVR.
An attendee at the ball captured a photo of the “In Time” actor looking sharp inside the event – click HERE to see the photo!
The wife of a Marine who attended the big night said Justin “posed for pictures and seemed like a normal guy,” according to the station.
No word yet on whether the superstar brought “Sexy Back” on the dance floor with the Cpl., who threw down the dance gauntlet on Friday’s Access Hollywood Live.
“My friends keep saying, ‘Dance-off!’ They know about my skills,” Cpl. De Santis told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover of her “multiple signature moves,” including “The Dougie.” “I honestly don’t think he’ll be able to keep up with my group of people… I don’t think he’ll be able to keep up with us.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, the Marine, who is stationed at the Marine Corps base at Quantico, invited Justin to the Marine Corps Ball back in July on YouTube, saying, “And if you can’t go, all I can say is, ‘Cry me a river!’”
Kelsey asked the star to be her date after Sergeant Scott Moore posted a clip on YouTube asking Justin’s “Friends with Benefits” co-star, Mila Kunis, to attend his unit’s Marine Corps Ball in Greenville, NC, on November 18.
Last week, a rep for Mila told The Washington Post that the “Black Swan” beauty is still planning to accompany Sgt. Moore to the event.
