Justin Timberlake presented music legend Annie Lennox with the Award of Merit during Sunday night’s 2008 American Music Awards at Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. In receiving the achievement award, she joins the prestigious ranks of other legends, including Elvis, Sir Paul McCartney and Whitney Houston.
Lennox said: “Thank you so much for this. I never thought that I would live to see the day that I could be 53 years old, standing on this stage where so many people have inspired me. It has been an incredible journey – music, my friends, my accomplishments with Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and it is very important that I say half of the award goes to Dave.”
She appeared and gave a very moving musical performance of Why. Check out photos and video below.
