Esmee Denters: Timberlake Signs YouTube Phenom

Justin Timberlake has signed his first artist to his new record label Tennman Records — YouTube discovery Esmee Denters, 18.

Said 26-year-old Justin, “In completely unpredicted news to all YouTubers and bloggers, we are proud to announce Esmee Denters has signed to Tennman Records and she will be joining me on tour this summer. Esmee is the real deal and I cannot wait for the world to hear her but all of her fans on YouTube should not worry. We will keep you in the loop every step of the way.”

Said Esmee, “Words can’t describe how amazing it is. I am so excited! It is something I have always dreamed of doing. I have to thank YouTube and its viewers for giving me the opportunity to show the world my voice. I also have to thank Justin, one of the biggest artists in the world, for believing in me and making my dreams come true.”

The announcement was first made on Dutch talk show Jensen!. You can watch the Jensen! show here (part 1 and part 2). But be warned, it’s in Dutch with English subtitles.

I saw it on Jensen yesterday, good for her. She really has an amazing voice.

How old is Justin again?

He looks so old…..and not just in this shot.

Oddly I think that his label will be a success……

Cute face, great voice.

Im glad you posted other pictures of her because that photoshop pic next to justin does not do justice to Esmee. She is amazing and has that great r&b voice.I saw her first vid and have been a fan since. Good luck to her and congrats.

# 7

Really looking forward to what kind of music she’s going to put out there. She has a great voice, looks good and got signed by JT: all the ingredients for success I think

# 8

Go Esmee! I have watched her videos for quite a while now and I knew she was going to be big. Keep working girl! I see you everywhere

# 9

she looks like nikki hilton paris sister or kinda bette midler.

Well she is not Timberlake’s new discovery is she now? What, couldn’t he find talent the old fashioned hard way hmmm? Anyway she’s cool, saw some of her clips a few months ago, good voice and seems nice… Don’t like him though and I am afraid to say I think his label is going to suck.
Lol Justin always looks like a scared little piece of ****, and in this post (the first pic) Esmee does too. HAHAHA

#4 – JT is 26.

I think thats just an unflattering picture, for some reason he does look very old there but I still think he’s sexy as hell! His voice, his body, dance moves, pretty much everything haha.

Good for him w/starting that label.

one not fooled @ 06/05/2007 at 7:00 pm

I’m glad she got signed but give her some credit. you’re calling her Justin’s “discovery” but she’s been on the scene for over a year and a half. He was just the first person smart enough to sign her. Lets you know how f*cked up the music industry is currently. This awesome talent sat unsigned while vapid, birdbrain songs like umbrella sit atop the charts.

She kinda looks like Hayden Panettiere.

Great voice and lovely face!

Looks like a young version of his mom, Lynne!

She can’t sing.

THIS GIRL SUCKS! she is no american idol. She will not sell. Poor justin…he just wasted another good/solid record deal on someone who wont do him any good.

she has a nice voice, but i think it lack originality. not unique enough for me…

She is talented but not so easy on the eyes. She can make herself look good though.

I love her. i just think her voice is amazing!

Good for her! That is the craziest picture I’ve seen of Justin. scary!

People have to be somewhere for them to be ‘discovered’. It doesn’t matter that she’s been around for a year..that’s no time at all.

What’s wrong with the fact that she’s been found via her youtube etc?

Plus, she has no record deal, has not been on tv or any of the established media as far as i know. Justin will be exposing her to all of that, so yes in that sense, she is his ‘discovery’.

dont like her attitude.
but great voice

So far, haven’t seen anything wrong with her attitude. She seems very mature for her age. Looking forward to seeing how she develops.

Oh and BTW…Justin doesn’t look ‘old’ there. To look any younger would make him look about 14!
