NEW YORK (AP) -- Justin Timberlake is hosting an awards show -- and it's not the Grammys.
ESPN has lined up the 27-year-old singer-actor to host its annual ESPY Awards show this summer, celebrating some of the best and funniest moments in sports over the past year.
The ceremony, to be held in Los Angeles on July 20, will be televised live on ESPN.
Timberlake, who grew up in the Memphis suburb of Millington, says he's a sports junkie.
He said he'll do his best because he doesn't want to be roughed up backstage by athletes who are bigger, faster and stronger than he is.
