Justin Timberlake To Receive The ‘Contemporary Icon’ Honor At 2019 Songwriters Hall Of Fame Ceremony

Published: Wednesday 8th May 2019 by Sam

Justin Timberlake may not have been on the main ballot for the 2019 Songwriters Hall Of Fame, but he’s still set to be honored.

For, it’s just been announced that JT will be presented with the Contemporary Icon award at the 50th annual ceremony next month.

Per organizers, the award  is bestowed upon “a songwriter-artist who has attained an iconic status in pop culture.”

On Timberlake’s salute, SHOF chairman Nile Rodgers said in a statement:

“Justin is extraordinary. Like Michael Jackson and George Michael before him, he’s turned pop music into great art and made three or four of the most influential albums of the last 15 years. How? He knows the secret is extraordinary songs. He and Timbaland have defined an era.”

Linda Moran, SHOF President and CEO, added that JT is “multitalented and multifaceted, respected, admired and beloved by his fans and peers alike.”

The honor comes on the heels of the singer’s mammoth ‘Man Of The Woods Tour,’ which – despite its like-titled album underperforming – was a success.

Timberlake, who is in the studio working on new music, follows Lady Gaga on the list of notable names who’ve been presented with the Contemporary Icon award.

The 50th Annual Songwriters Hall Of Fame takes place on June 13th at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. Inducted on the night will be the likes of Missy Elliott and Dallas Austin.

    As a former fan – something is just off and sour about him these days. Great his tour sold, but he waded into bland unexciting magnolia musical material a long time ago and it doesn’t look like he’s ever gonna come back. The quality of material just doesn’t add up.

    Who cares? Lady Gaga was the first artist to receive this award in 2015. Justin is DE-CLASSING this award. The award should go to Timbaland!

      Keep living in delusion. It’s getting worse for you. Nile Rogers hand selected JT. Keep crying. You care…lmao. Justin will continue be respected by his peers in the industry till you have run out of breath to keep yappin’…lol

      • Jasmine May 8, 2019

        You keep on WORSHIPPING that gutter trash demon Justin with his wrinkly skin, balding hair, and gray hair around the balls, funky musty asss self! I have RECEIPTS b|tch. HE IS NO GOOD. Look how he made Britney cry. He is a DEMON just like you are a DEMON. Only a DEMON would be WORSHIPPING another DEMON:

    He is nowhere close to approaching the influence of MJ. If Justin defined an era, Michael defined entire generations. There is no comparison.

    • June 13th, 2019 May 8, 2019

      JT has said a million times that Michael was his influence as well as George Michael and Prince. Dues have been paid and innovation has been laid. This is not a question. He deserves it.

      • Jasmine May 8, 2019

        Shut it gutter trash

  4. olusheyi banjo May 8, 2019

    He doesn’t deserve this award at all. He is a copycat and a culture vulture

    • June 13th, 2019 May 8, 2019

      Culture Vulture is used by stans who wish their fave was winning. JT is not the reason they are flopping. There is room for everyone.

      • Jasmine May 8, 2019

        Shut it u trash

      • Buzz Off May 8, 2019

        👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽PREACHHHHH!

    • June 13th, 2019 May 8, 2019

      I am convinced that Grapjuice.net is a place where losers vent their frustrations about things unrelated to the article at hand. Justin Timberlake made his own sound with Timbaland. It has been copied and sampled by countless other artists white and black (the younger generation though not you old heads)…lol

      • Jasmine May 8, 2019

        Don’t listen to anythig this queen got to say yall. That is that sissy Suicide Blonde aka (I won’t dare mention his name because I want him to DO BETTER). Y’all know who he is. He is SHADY! Just a few months ago he was pretending to be straight and BEGGING to lick my girl Rapsutia’s boxx and assss. No he on here salivating over some old Justin musty nuts. Girl Bye. THE SHADE OF IT ALL!

    :sips truth tea:

    For what? H

    ow is he getting a Contemporary Icon Award in pop songwriting over Beyonce, Adele, Taylor Swift, Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo, John Legend, P!nk, and Ed Sheeran?
    I can’t think of a good JT song that wasn’t by another black songwriter or producer.

    This award is now a debased joke.

    • June 13th, 2019 May 8, 2019

      Go read any young male artists wikipedia and discography and see how many times Justin Timberlake comes up in the commentary and reviews for songs as well as entire albums. His influence has already been documented and this is well deserved. Even females have sampled his songs in 2019 to #1 and #2 Billboard Hot 100 success. Should I list some?

      • Jasmine May 8, 2019

        NOBODY is influenced by that GUTTER TRASH Justina Fagalake. Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Bobby Brown, R. Kelly, Garth Brooks, and Chris Brown are the influencers. Justina is a fake poser.

        ‘Should I list some?’ Bring your receipts ho. I bet the production for any sampled Justina was created by black people! He aint create sh|t. He is a poser.

      • June 13th, 2019 May 8, 2019

        Is that why Quincy Jones has been talking sideways about Michael Jackson for the past 3 months straight? Did you see the news TODAY? Justin wrote ALL HIS SONGS….including countless others for other artists white and black. You racist hog.

      • Jasmine May 8, 2019

      • Jasmine May 8, 2019

        TRANSLATION: That queen ain’t got receipts yall! JT doing this and that and that queen can’t even name 10 songs he wrote solely by himself.

  6. June 13th, 2019 May 8, 2019

    I can’t wait till June 13th, this is beyond deserved. This is the start of many due respects he will be paid over the next decades.

    • Jasmine May 8, 2019

      U sound like that gutter trash sissy Suicide Blonde who surfaces on JT and J.Ho posts. Get lost u gutter trash racist demon.

      • June 13th, 2019 May 8, 2019

        Shut your ugly ass up.

      • Jasmine May 8, 2019

        The only one who is ugly is you. You ain’t fooling anybody. U pretended to be a white sissy named Suicide Blonde when you are a black man. When are u gonna stop cooooning and kissing up to white people???? U ain’t white no matter how many times u catfish this site with pics of that dead man Kurt Cobain. What black man did u so wrong that u had to pretend to be white and put white men on a pedastool. Justina would not spit on u if u were on fire and that is a fact. He don’t like ur kind. He like white sissies.

      • Jasmine May 8, 2019

        Ugly? I bet you and your momma watch me on tv every week and yall admire my beauty! From modeling to business woman I stay getting money backs with my looks, talent, beauty, and wit. There is nothing ugly about me. Keep seething and staying gutter trash.

      • June 13th, 2019 May 8, 2019

        Keep changing your avatar to make your retarded points, ugly h**.

      • Jasmine May 8, 2019

        Don’t worry about my ‘avatar’ b|tch! This is 2019. I have different avatars for my phones, laptops, ipad, chrome book, etc. Sh|t aint intentional! I just go online from numerous devices cause I got it like that b|tch!

        RECIEPT:

        Here is that sissy Justin outing himself as a VILE person. What kind of person learns about someone they were once very close with and does not at least reach out during a breakdown as big as Britney’s 2007 breakdown? An evil GUTTER TRASH DEMON SISSY! Look at that thing flapping his rotten gums and spewing COLD evilness in this clip below. Only an evil cold GUTTER TRASH demon or naive monkey a would WORSHIP THAT DISGUSTING THING.
