Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - In the 15 years Timberlake has been in the national spotlight, ladies have made up the vast majority of his cheering crowds and it's no different here.
In fact, the Fargodome converted men's bathrooms to women's tonight to accommodate the lopsided margins.
I arrived before most of the crowd did, but as they were trickling in I counted a steady ratio of about 4 women for each guy.
And many of them were being very good sports.
"You ready J-T?"
Fargo certainly was ready for the former N-Sync-er.
"Wish I could meet you, Justin Timberlake!"
"I love you Justin Timberlake."
"Them other boys don't know how to act."
But there were exceptions.
"You wouldn't necessarily be coming to this concert by yourself, huh?"
Jaraed Goodvoice/ “Dad of the Year”: "Uh, no. Probably not."
Jaraed is attending the concert and is not what you would call a fan.
"So, here we are."
And he's not alone.
"You know any of his songs that you could, like, list off or anything like that?"
Alexander Leehaas/ “Really, Really Good Friend: "Well, we had an argument about this. And, uh, I said I only know 2 songs from him. But I guess I know more."
Dads, friends, boyfriends, brothers, and husbands showed up early just so their loved ones could be among the first to find their seats for a show they don't plan to watch.
"Do you have a game plan about how you're going to get through the concert? If you don't..."
"Lots of caffeine so I stay awake, I guess. I don't know."
For some, it was penance paid for weekends spent hunting or watching football.
For others, it was a night paying up on a promise.
But for all... it really boiled down to one common denominator.
ANDREW WILLARD"Boyfriend of the Year": "They were bought for Christmas presents for my girlfriend and her sister."
"So, you probably racked up some serious brownie points there, huh?
"Oh, yeah. She liked 'em. They were excited when they got them." >
Of course... there were a few guys at the show who were big J-T fans.
And there were even a few more that told me, off the record of course, that they were looking forward to the show.
