Justin Timberlake was the belle of the ball Saturday night – the Marine Corps ball.
The singer-turned-actor fulfilled the promise he made in July and attended the military event on the arm of U.S. Marine Cpl. Kelsey de Santis, who asked him to be her date in a YouTube video.
Timberlake was snapped by a fellow partygoer looking dapper — and a little shellshocked — in formal wear at the Virginia event, seated at a table surrounded by marines in uniform, in a photo obtained by local TV station WTVR.
The wife of one of the marines at the ball said Timberlake “posed for pictures and seemed like a normal guy,” according to WTVR.
De Santis, whose sassy YouTube invite was inspired by Timberlake’s encouragement of costar Mila Kunis to accept a marine’s invite to a similar ball, talked tough before the event, telling reporters she planned to challenge Timberlake to a dance-off.
“My friends keep saying, ‘Dance-off!’ They know about my skills,” she told Access Hollywood. “I honestly don’t think he’ll be able to keep up with my group of people.”
No word yet on if she broke out one of the “multiple signature moves” she boasted of, such as “The Dougie.”
She and Timberlake are also staying mum on whether anything romantic happened, though De Santis left the door open for things to heat up with the “Sexy Back” singer in an interview before the event.
“Of course, I’m single!” she said before the event. “I don’t know [if a kiss will happen\]. I guess that’s all up to JT and what his plans are.”
Kunis is still planning to attend the Marine Corps ball she was invited to, which is slated for November 18.
