  • Last gifts To top it all off since Ryan and his family are New England Patriots fans Ellen gives him a VIP experience to a Patriots home game next season four tickets to a game and four pre-game field passes courtesy of the NFL

While Ellen had the teen recount the moment for her audience, she was holding back a major surprise until she told McKenna someone wanted to say hi on the phone-you guessed it, Justin Timberlake.

Ryan McKenna went from high school student to worldwide star when he took the opportunity to grab a selfie with Justin as he performed Can't Stop the Feeling as his final song during the Super Bowl Halftime Show, leading to the 13-year-old earning the nickname "SelfieKid" and going viral on the Internet.

The Philadelphia Eagles weren't the only ones to steal the spotlight in Super Bowl LII with their win over the New England Patriots.

'I'd really like to meet you in person and I'm coming down to Boston and I'd like to meet you and your family, ' Justin responded.

"The lady told us that we were in a good section, but we had no idea that Justin was going to be there", said McKenna.

"I got myself there".

"I saw all the memes", McKenna said. "So it just shut off, and that's why all the memes formed". McKenna was then further overwhelmed when Timberlake presented his gift to him: The singer said he wants to properly meet McKenna, so he and his got VIP passes to the MA stop of his Man Of The Woods tour (and the National Football League also gave them a nice package of goodies that includes tickets and special access to a Patriots home game next season).

McKenna said with eyes full of tears, "Thank you so much!" "I'd like to invite you and your family to come".

The singer then explained how the memorable moment came about, saying that McKenna stole the show. "Oh my gosh!" "Ryan, I look forward to meeting you", Justin ended their phone conversation.

She then revealed that the National Football League had also provided a gift basket for the family, which included clothing apparel and tickets to multiple New England Patriots games and passes to go on the field.
