Justin Timberlake keeps promise to attend Marine Corps Ball with Kelsey DeSantis

As he promised a few months ago, Justin Timberlake turned up at the Marine Corps Ball in Richmond on Saturday as the date of a soldier who had asked him out via YouTube. Timberlake accompanied Kelsey DeSantis to the event and, according to his blog, he had a pretty good time.

It was back in July that Kelsey De Santis made headlines by asking Timberlake to be her date for the night. The singer immediately agreed, and other marines soon jumped in and asked various celebrities, such as Mila Kunis and Betty White, to be their own dates. Ultimately, though, it was Timberlake who followed through on the request.

In his blog entry summing up the night, Timberlake speaks of how moved he was by the whole event. It’s a pretty genuine account, although don’t go expecting anything other than a gushing account of his respect for heroism etc. Meanwhile, the marines apparently enjoyed the evening as well, thanks in part to their celebrity guest.
