Back in 2011, comedians Nikki Glaser and Sara Schaefer went viral with a PSA they created demanding that Justin Timberlake return to making music. Two years later, the ladies have their own talk show on MTV. For two seasons of "Nikki & Sara Live," they've been documenting their quest to meet JT, and it finally happened. Even better, they had no idea it was coming.
The ladies thought they were about to interview Ke$ha, but instead it was Timberlake who walked out. "Hello," he said calmly.
Schaefer's response was, “Oh my God!” Glaser could only say, "What the hell?" over and over.
“Oh my God. Was this all a set up?” Glaser asked him.
“Yeah, I’m Ke$ha," Timberlake laughed. He went on to explain that the whole thing was put together by the crew of the show as a surprise for the hosts.
“I’m like trying not to cry right now. I’m so excited," Schaefer said. "I’m a 35-year-old woman.”
It was all so sincere and funny and adorable. Schaefer apologized if they'd ever made Timberlake feel uncomfortable, and then broke down in tears after the interview ended. Glaser called the experience her "Make-A-Wish." As for the interview itself, it mostly consisted of Timberlake asking them questions ... about their JT obsession.
At MTV's Remote Control, Matthew Scott Donnelly called watching the interview "the adult equivalent" to "a kid's first encounter with Santa.” "Nikki & Sara Live" airs every Tuesday night at 11 p.m. ET on MTV.
