Justin Timberlake Cried A River Over Jessica Biel At His Music Hall Of Fame Induction

In an emotional speech, Timberlake called the actress his 'rock.'

Justin Timberlake was in Memphis this weekend to receive a major honor: a permanent place in the Music Hall of Fame.

And while Jessica Biel wasn't able to take the stage with her hubs -- probably because somebody had to stay home with the wee, brand new baby Timberlake -- she still got the best thank you of the evening during his long, emotional speech.

"Baby, I love you more than I could put into words and more than any song I could ever write," Timberlake said, after thanking the city of Memphis and his fellow artists for "the coolest f--king thing that has ever happened to me."

He wasn't quite done gushing, either, going on to call Biel "beautiful, loving, and incredibly understanding of her husband's shortcomings."

The evening kicked off with a warm welcome from Timberlake's longtime friend Jimmy Fallon, who introduced Justin to the stage (and himself to the audience as "Mrs. Justin Timberlake.") And while Jimmy didn't get quite as sweet a shout-out during the ceremony, Justin was clearly feeling the love for everyone last night, including his best bro.
