Justin Timberlake is probably one of the last people you'd think would cover a Garth Brooks song. But he did just that. 

During a performance for the JT 2020 Tour in Nashville, Tennessee in December 2014, Timberlake honors the city's country roots by starting to sing Brook's big-time hit "Friends In Low Places."

Timberlake starts singing the first few words of the song, prompting cheers from the crowd as he asks, "What you know about that?

"Friends In Low Places" was originally released by Brooks in 1990 as the first single off his album No Fences. The song remained at the #1 spot on the U.S. country singles chart for four weeks, and also earned the ACM and CMA awards for Single of the Year.

The crowd gets really involved in Timberlake's performance of the song, and they even take over singing when Timberlake pauses for a moment.

If he had been performing in any city other than Nashville, maybe there wouldn't have been as many people that knew the words to Brooks' hit song. But since Nashville is the country music capital of the world, Timberlake's fans were more than happy to hear a little bit of Brooks' music.

Although Timberlake's rendition of "Friends In Low Places" is awesome in itself, nothing beats what happens partway through his performance

"Hold on, something don't feel right Nashville." Timberlake says, before turning backstage "Garth?

Sure enough, Brooks walks out on stage, tipping his hat to the crowd as they burst into cheers. Serval people start taking out their phones, making sure they capture the incredible moment on film.

Timberlake and Brooks sing back and forth with one another, often pausing to let the crowd sing the song themselves. The crowd loves the performance, and they never stop cheering, not even when Timberlake and Brooks are singing.

Once the two finish singing, Brooks walks off stage, while Timberlake falls to the ground, clearly in awe of having just performed with the country music legend.

We guarantee that you'll also find yourself awestruck with Timberlake and Brooks' surprise duet of "Friends In Low Places."  

LYRICS BELOW

Blame it all on my roots
I showed up in boots
And ruined your black tie affair
The last one to know
The last one to show
I was the last one
You thought you'd see there
And I saw the surprise
And the fear in his eyes
When I took his glass of champagne
And I toasted you
Said, honey, we may be through
But you'll never hear me complain

'Cause I've got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns
And the beer chases my blues away
And I'll be okay
I'm not big on social graces
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis
Oh, I've got friends in low places

Well, I guess I was wrong
I just don't belong
But then, I've been there before
Everything's all right
I'll just say goodnight
And I'll show myself to the door
Hey, I didn't mean
To cause a big scene
Just give me an hour and then
Well, I'll be as high
As that ivory tower
That you're livin' in

'Cause I've got friends in low places
Where the whiskey drowns
And the beer chases my blues away
And I'll be okay
I'm not big on social graces
Think I'll slip on down to the oasis
Oh, I've got friends in low places

I guess I was wrong
I just don't belong
But then, I've been there before
And everything is alright
I'll just say goodnight
And I'll show myself to the door
I didn't mean to cause a big scene
Just wait 'til I finish this glass
Then sweet little lady
I'll head back to the bar
And you can kiss my ass
