Justin Timberlake wants you

Justin Timberlake said bye-bye-bye to his ‘N Sync bandmates, but he’s saying hello to one lucky person, who will sing a duet with him at the Grammys in February.

The Recording Academy, along with CBS and Yahoo! Inc., is holding a contest to find one unsigned singer who will perform with the “SexyBack” singer at the Grammy awards, which air February 11, 2007.

Contestants can visit and submit a 60-second video clip of themselves belting out one of nine Timberlake tunes listed.

A panel will choose 12 of the top contestants, who will then be voted on online by us tone-deaf regular folk. The field will ultimately narrow to three finalists, who will be announced on Super Bowl weekend.

Those three will attend the Grammy awards’ live broadcast - the winner will be announced live, and they will jump onstage to perform with JT.

Sadly, the contest is only open to residents of the U.S.
