Justin Timberlake JTIMBERLAKE021108_05.jpg ESPN sure hit a home run when they picked the host for their annual sports awards show - Justin Timberlake!

The AP reports that the pop singer has been tapped to present this year's show on July 20th. Good times!

Justin's not taking his hosting duties lightly, either - he's already pledging to "do my best to deliver a great show, as I do not want to be roughed up backstage by these athletes who are bigger, faster and stronger than me". Now that's sound reasoning!
