Bette “Nammie” Maloney had the experience of a lifetime. The 88-year-old superfan couldn’t believe it when, in an Instagram video from late March that has since gone viral, she got Justin Timberland tickets for an Easter present. But she was even more astounded to get a concert shout-out at the show on Monday — and got to meet the 37-year-old singer.
Maloney’s granddaughter, Sarah Watson, documented Nammie’s amazing journey from teary-eyed disbelief on Easter to the “best night ever” at the show in Orlando. Before showtime, Nammie got the chance to meet the singer on his Man of the Woods Tour.
“He’s a class act, y’all. Humbled by and beyond grateful for all the love shown to sweet Nammie tonight,” Watson wrote on Instagram Monday. ”
At one point during the show, Timberlake even pauses and gives Nammie a shout-out by name. “She is 88 years old and I met her earlier tonight, wherever you are in the audience… I love you!” Timberlake says, to cheers from the crowd.
