Justin Timberlake’s mastery of the English language comes clear through his hit songs like “Mirrors” and “Cry Me a River.”

Back in 1995, Justin took place in the 1995 Memphis Commercial Appeal Spelling Bee at the age of fourteen. He was doing well in the competition, but what was the word that ended up eliminating the future Mickey Mouse Club member?

Wharf.

noun:A level area to which a ship may be moored to load and unload.

Luckily this minor setback didn’t deter Justin from achieving any other milestones in his life.
