MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com)– Wooing the hometown hero. When Justin Timberlake returns to Memphis for a November 18th concert at FedEx Forum, he is not meeting with the media.

So, a local radio host has made it her mission to meet and interview the Mid-South superstar.

Everybody loves Justin Timberlake, right? We just want the chance to show him how much.

But, since he’s not planning to meet with any media, Michelle Lewis of FM100 has made it a personal challenge to show J.T. so much love he can’t refuse an interview request.

“Show me you love me.” Timberlake sang in one recording.

That’s exactly what Michelle Lewis is trying to do when Justin Timberlake returns home for a concert at FedEx Forum.

“He’s not doing any press,” Lewis said. “No meet and greets.”

So, the morning host at FM100 is on a 35 day campaign to get J.T. to meet with her.

“We want to interact with him,” said Lewis. “Everybody loves him. Everybody has such pride that he’s from here.”

“I want to show you a few things,” sang Timberlake in another song.

Lewis has a few things to show J.T. Like local celebrities trying to help.

“Justin, how are you doing? This is Coach Josh Pastner,” said the Tigers basketball coach in a video made especially for Lewis.

“I’m here with beautiful, gorgeous Michelle. And let me tell you, you have got to meet her,” Pastner said.

“TKO, girl you knock me out,” Timberlake sang in yet another song.

Lewis is certainly hoping for a knockout. Even enlisting some of Timberlake’s employees.

“Hey Justin, this is Mike Conley of the Memphis Grizzlies,” Conley said in another video made for Lewis. “Man, I hope you get a chance to meet Michelle. She’s a big fan.”

Despite the help, with only 14 days to go there has been no word from Timberlake’s camp.

“I keep telling Michelle I’m not worried yet,” FM100 program director Chris Michaels said. “I think it’s going to happen.”

For a little extra help, Lewis went sentimental.

“His school, Jeter Elementary in Millington,” said Lewis. “He donated thousands to the music program.”

“Hi, Justin,” said Jason Seek online. “This is your old music teacher Mr. Seek. We want to say best wishes on your concert coming up, and Memphis is very proud of you.”

“The goal is to show him how much we love him,” Lewis said.

“Girl, you knock me out,” sang Timberlake.

Lewis is certainly trying to score a knockout punch. She says her campaign is dedicated to snagging Timberlake the right way. By doing something fun, so J.T. doesn’t feel threatened.

Time is running out. Good luck!
