Selfie Kid was shocked when the "Mirrors" singer-songwriter said his name as The Ellen DeGeneres Show audience roared with delight.

Their first encounter was during Sunday's halftime show when Timberlake ended his performance dancing through the stands.

McKenna turned up on Friday's episode of Ellen to talk about the surreal experience, when the host revealed that Timberlake was on the phone and wanted to speak to him, as reported by ET Online.

"Oh, my God!" McKenna gasped.

The former *NSYNC member came on the line and greeted the teen, who was then noticeably overcome with emotion. For the February 9 episode, Ryan McKenna, AKA the Super Bowl selfie kid, stopped by to chat with Ellen Degeneres, 60.
