You'd think by this point, Justin Timberlake has achieved nearly everything an artist can do – but he'll actually add another career milestone to his experience belt later this month, when he takes the stage at the 2013 American Music Awards on November 24th. It'll mark the first time he will perform at the award show as a solo artist.

Timberlake joins a slew of A-listers that evening, including Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Ke$ha, Imagine Dragons and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.  

Of course, Timberlake is in the midst of a monster 2013 that found him back in the music world with his double album, The 20/20 Experience (part one came out in March, and he released part two in September). He hit the road hard, with a c0-headlining summer tour with Jay Z, and is now out on hs own, playing North American arenas. He also briefly reunited 'NSync at the MTV Video Music Awards, much to the delight of Nineties nostalgia fans.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
