Kenny Wormald at the VMAs
Stoughton's own Kenny Wormald was a backup dancer during Justin Timberlake's showstopping 15-minute performance at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, which aired Sunday night.
Before Wormald starred in the 2011 remake of Footloose, the Stoughton native made his mark as a professional dancer, including serving as a backup dancer for Timberlake. Timberlake was at the VMAs to receive the biggest award of the night, the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award.
