The Mirror reports *NSYNC star Justin Timberlake looked in sheer ecstasy on stage at last night’s Brit Awards as he got to grab the behind of Kylie Minogue. “I didn’t just touch it, I copped a feel,” Justin said after the show. “On a scale of one to 10, it was like a 58.” Justin explained the pairing saying, “I met her when I did a radio show with her and thought she was gorgeous but we didn’t get a chance to talk. I was then told I could choose someone to duet with and I knew it had to be Kylie. I’ve heard people in Britain are obsessed with Kylie’s bum and I can totally see why. I’m pretty obsessed with it now, too.”
