Justin Timberlake flew more than 1,700 miles to cast his vote in this year's election, but now he may be in hot water for it.
The singer took to Instagram to share a selfie from the polling station and encourage his 37 million followers to make their voices heard on Nov. 8.
He noted that he was taking advantage of early voting in Tennessee.
"Hey! You! Yeah, YOU! I just flew from LA to Memphis to #rockthevote !!! No excuses, my good people!" he wrote. "There could be early voting in your town too. If not, November 8th! Choose to have a voice! If you don't, then we can't HEAR YOU! Get out and VOTE! #excerciseyourrighttovote"
JT did not specify his political preferences, though earlier this year, he and his wife, Jessica Biel, hosted a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton at their Los Angeles-area home.
But while encouraging fans to vote is commendable, Justin's voting selfie could now get him in trouble with the law. Turns out, in Tennessee it’s illegal to take photos in the polling station. According to a statement from a rep at the Shelby County D.A. Office, violators could face a 30 day jail sentence and a $50 fine.
"The Shelby County D.A.’s office was made aware of a possible violation of state election law," the statement says in reference to Justin's photo. "The matter is under review by the D.A.’s Office."

"This beautiful soul, and former dancer of mine is MISSING!!! My heart aches thinking of how heavy this is on all who love her!" Rihanna wrote to her Instagram followers. "If anyone has seen or has any information on @shirlenequigley's whereabouts ..... PLEASE CONTACT the North Bergen Police Department 201 392 2100 !!!!"
"This is @shirlenequigley she's been missing since Friday she is so loved & we pray for her safe return.." Elliott wrote. "if u have any information or seen her please contact North Bergen police 201-392-2100 she was last seen at 12:55 am at Port Authority."

L-R: Coach Miley Cyrus, guest coaches Faith Hill & Tim McGraw; Trae Patton/NBCIt was the first night of the knockout rounds on Monday’s edition of The Voice, a night that saw coaches Blake Shelton and Adam Levine each snatching an artist from the other.
Artists from coaches Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys’ teams also duked it out to see which ones would make it to the live rounds.
The coaches got some help from country music power couple Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
First up, it was Team Blake’s Josh Gallagher performing Brooks & Dunn’s version of B.W. Stevenson’s “My Maria,” challenged by Sundance Head, who made a risky song choice with Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb.” Blake warned Gallagher about staying on pitch during the falsetto parts of his song. Faith Hill’s advice for Sundance was to perform the song with only his acoustic guitar as an accompaniment.
Sundance’s won Miley’s seal of approval, and Blake’s as well, as he named Sundance the winner of the contest. However Adam stole Josh, assuring him he was in good hands with him because “no one for the last six years has wanted to take a country singer…and beat [Blake] over the head.”
Team Alicia’s first knockout battle of the night was between Kylie Rothfield, singing Big Mama Thornton’s version of Elvis’ classic “Hound Dog,” and sister duo Whitney & Shannon tackling Jason Mraz’s “I Won’t Give Up.” Tim advised Kylie her to keep it “thick and swampy” and “keep the smoke in it.” Whitney & Shannon, on the other hand, needed to stand out individually, instead of relying on their harmonies.
Miley, Adam and Blake called the match a toss-up, but Alicia, noting Kylie’s potential, proclaimed her the winner.
Next, Miley pitted Ali Caldwell, performing “No Ordinary Love” by Sade, against Lauren Diaz, singing Andra Day’s “Rise Up.” Faith compared Ali’s voice to a “freight Train,” likening it to the late Whitney Houston. Tim had essentially the same advice for both big voiced singers, which was to “sell” their songs.
While both artists impressed the judges with their powerful voices, Adam, Blake and Alicia gave Lauren the edge due to the “desperation” and “urgency” of her performance. However the judge whose opinion counted was Miley, and she gave the decision to Ali.
Team Adam’s Dave Moisan, singing Sam Smith’s “Like I Can” faced off against Simone Gundy with “Midnight Train to Georgia,” by Gladys Knight & the Pips were next. Tim and Faith agreed with Adam that Dave picked a tough song for his voice and needed to concentrate on his technique. Their only critique for Simone was to maintain eye contact with the audience.
Blake gave the edge to Simone for seizing the opportunity. Alicia didn’t think Dave picked the best song for his voice. Adam agreed, declaring Simone the winner.
Keys next match featured two 17-year-olds -- Courtnie Ramirez, singing Beyoncé’s “If I Were a Boy,” against Wé McDonald, tackling Mary J. Blige’s "No More Drama.” Alicia, Tim and Faith agreed Courtnie needed to “finish [her] phrases,” as well as sing the song in a lower key to bring out the bottom in her voice. Faith urged McDonald to “keep it real and don’t over-dramatize” the tune.
The other judges called the contest a tie. Alicia noted she was proud of both singers and joked that she picked both artists. However, Wé was ultimately declared the winner.
The final match belonged to Team Adam’s Riley Elmore, singing Michael Bublé’s “Haven’t Met You Yet,“ and Jason Warrior with “I Want You,” by Luke James. Levine noted that jazz artist Riley would go from a great singer, to someone who could win the competition by really “selling” the performance. Jason, according to Faith, needed a “bridge” between the high and low ends of his range.
The judges liked Riley’s “Genuineness,” but were blown away with Jason’s range. Adam went with the artist that was most unlike any other person in the competition, which he felt was Riley. However Blake stole Jason, citing his emotion.
The Voice battle rounds continue Tuesday night at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
Terence Patrick/CBSLadyGaga hops into James Corden's passenger seat tonight for another installment of "Carpool Karaoke," but we got a preview of the segment Monday.
The clip begins with the two shouting at drivers before singing a chorus of Gaga's 2009 hit, "Bad Romance." Afterwards, they reenact the phon ecall in which Gaga received the invitation to headline the 2017 Super Bowl halftime show February 5,at NRG Stadium in Houston.
"Hi, it's Dave from the NFL...what are you doing early next year?" asks The Late Late Show host.
Gaga replies, "Oh my gosh, are you giving me the Super Bowl?"
"Yes, that's amazing you even knew that from that small bit of information," Corden fires back.
The carpoolers then launch into another chorus of "Bad Romance."
Past "Carpool Karaoke" segments have featured Adele, One Direction, Selena Gomez, Stevie Wonder, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears and others. The Adele segment has racked up more than 129 million hits and stands as the segment's most popular to date -- a record Gaga, popular though she is, is unlikely to surpass.
The Late Late Show airs tonight at 12:37 a.m. ET on CBS.
BERTRAND GUAY/AFP/Getty ImagesIf you never imagined Chanhassen, Minnesota, could be a vacation destination, that's just changed. The town's city council has just approved allowing Prince's Paisley Park estate to be open permanently for public tours. And the estate was definitely ready.
The official Paisley Park website is already selling tickets for the 2016 season, which ends in December, with a promise to begin selling 2017 tickets next month. You can pay $38.50 plus fees for general admission, or $100 plus fees for the "VIP Experience."
Both tickets get you access to Prince’s recording studios, concert hall, rehearsal rooms and his private NPG Music Club, while the VIP package tosses in an "expert" tour guide, additional rooms and "artifacts from the archives," and a "unique and exclusive photo opportunity."
Santiago Felipe/Getty ImagesIf you’re seeing Disney’s upcoming animated flick Moana, make sure you stay until the end, so you can hear Alessia Cara singing "How Far I'll Go," written by Hamilton’s Lin-Manuel Miranda. It'll play over the movie's end credits.
"So cool to be a part of @DisneyMoana," Alessia tweeted. "Such a killer story. thanks disney for letting me sing this song."
The soundtrack for Moana will be released November 18. The movie, which hits theaters on November 23, is set in Polynesia, and centers on a 16-year-old princess who sets sail on a daring journey to save her people.
While we're waiting to hear that song, you can listen to Alessia's current hit "Scars to Your Beautiful," an anthem of empowerment that's being used in several anti-bullying campaigns.
"I think it's being received very, very well and I'm really happy about that," Alessia tells ABC Radio about the song. "''When you do something like that, it can always get a little bit of backlash...by ignorant people. But, thankfully it's been really, really amazing and everyone's been so supportive of all of it."
Part of Alessia's promotion of "Scars to Your Beautiful" is appearing on red carpets and on stage wearing no makeup. The teen Canadian singer says she's loving not have to bother with touch-ups and hours in the makeup chair.
"I feel like this is more me and it's helping me to just become more confident in myself," she tells ABC Radio. "I think this is almost like a little test for me, just to help push me to be more comfortable in my own skin. It's awesome."
Alessia will wrap up her Know-It-All Part II tour November 2 in Toronto, in her home province of Ontario. She'll then head out on a series of holiday concerts starting late in November.
ABC/Fred LeeTaylor Swift, Adele and Shawn Mendes picked up prizes at the BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards in London yesterday.
Taylor received the Most entertaining Celebrity award. Though she couldn’t be there in person, she made an acceptance video. “I feel like I should be doing something entertaining right now, I immediately just wish I could juggle,” she says in the clip. “I can’t. I have nothing to offer. I just have thanks. Thanks so much.”
Adele took home the Best British Solo Artist award, Shawn was honored with both the Best International Solo Artist award and Best Single for “Stitches,” and 5 Seconds of Summer got Best International Group.
ABC/Image Group LAJustin Timberlake’s new animated movie Trolls doesn’t come out until next week, but it sounds like it already has its littlest fan. Justin tells Entertainment Tonight his one-year-old son, Silas, loves the film and can recognize his dad’s voice on screen.
"He knows all the characters already!" Justin says. "It's crazy!"
He explains that he got to screen the movie early with his son and wife Jessica Biel, since he was also the movie’s executive music producer.
Meanwhile, James Corden -- who plays Biggie in Trolls -- is dishing about what it was like to sing with Justin for the movie. “I spent like half a day doing singing which is always quite, you know, terrifying if you’re me and it’s him, but I think I got away with it,” he tells ET.

ABC/Fred LeeRachel Platten has gotten to do some pretty cool things since she became a star, but tomorrow night might just take the cake.
Rachel will perform the national anthem before Game One of the World Series Tuesday night at Progressive Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio, before the Chicago Cubs take on the Cleveland Indians. You'll be able to tune in starting at 7:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
The "Fight Song" singer doesn't have any personal connection to Cleveland, as far as we know: she was born in New York City and grew up in Massachusetts. Still, ratings are expected to be huge, since this is the Cubs' first trip to the Fall Classic since 1945. They haven't actually won since 1908.
Denise TruscelloIt was Britney Spears vs. the Bra Strap at her Las Vegas residency over the weekend. The singer suffered a wardrobe malfunction after the clasp to her bra top came undone mid-performance.
She kept the performance going as her dancers frantically tried to fix the problem. Try as they might -- and they did try three separate times -- the straps just wouldn’t stay put. Finally, a quick-thinking backup dancer gave Britney his shirt to wear over it. She was able to finish the rest of “Gimme More,” modesty intact.
This isn’t the first time Britney’s costume has betrayed her. Last week, her sheer bodysuit became unzipped during a performance of “3.” Her dancers couldn’t get the costume zipped again, so she just carried on with it that way.
FilmMagic/FilmMagicIt's nice to see they're still getting along. Exes Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon enjoyed an early Halloween party Saturday night with their kids, five-year old twins Moroccan and Monroe.
People magazine has photos of the happy family in costume, with Mariah dressed as a devil -- a sexy one, naturally, showing plenty of cleavage -- with Nick and Moroccan dressed as the Super Mario Brothers. Monroe was costumed as Rapunzel from the Disney flick Tangled.
Mariah, of course, is currently engaged to be married to Aussie billionaire James Packer, who will be hubby number three when they tie the knot.
In other Mariah news, the singer was spotted filming what appeared to be a Christmas-themed "Carpool Karaoke" segment with Late Late Show host James Corden on Friday. U.K.'s The Daily Mail has photos of the shoot, which featured the two of them driving around with a Christmas tree on top of the car.
If you'll remember, Mariah did the very first "Carpool" segment with James back in March 2015.
Disruptor Records / Columbia RecordsThe Chainsmokers’ “Closer” featuring Halsey finally has a music video. In the new clip released Monday, The Chainsmokers’ Drew Taggart and Halsey get much, um, closer.
Mimicking the lyrics of the song, the two play former lovers who run into each other again after years apart. The majority of the video is a steamy flashback to their time together, which was spent mostly in bed.
“Closer” has been topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart for the past nine weeks and has gone triple platinum. The Chainsmokers’ new EP, Collage, comes out November 4.
ABC/Fred Lee; ABC/Randy HolmesMost awkward party...ever. Frenemies Taylor Swift and Katy Perry both attendedDrake’s 30th birthday celebration on Sunday.
There are photos on social media that prove the ladies were in the same room, though it’s unclear if they interacted with one another. Making matters even more potentially awkward, their shared ex-boyfriend, John Mayer, was also in attendance at the rap superstar's bash.
However, new rumors claim John has been spending time with another female pop star these days: Demi Lovato.
According to US Weekly, the pair enjoyed one another's company Saturday night at the West Hollywood rooftop restaurant Catch L.A. They reportedly arrived and departed separately, but spent much of their time together at the restaurant.
US Weekly quotes a supposed witness as saying, "John had his arm around Demi and was whispering sweet nothings into her ear." The two have known each other for a while, and worked together in the past.

England's Manchester Evening Newsreports Justin walked off stage in the midst of his concert there Sunday night after fans booed him when he asked them to stop screaming while he was singing.
Justin reportedly returned to the stage straightaway, but wouldn't speak to the crowd the rest of the night, saying "I'm trying to engage but if you guys don't want to, I'll play the music."
If it sounds familiar, is a lot like what Justin did last Wednesday night at a show in Birmingham, England, when he told the crowd, in part, "I appreciate all the love, it’s amazing. But can you show it in a different way? Screaming is just so obnoxious.”
Casablanca RecordsChances are you know the song "This Girl," but you probably know very little about Kungs, one of the artists behind the track. Well, you're about to get the lowdown.

Bill Murray received the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor at the Kennedy Center Sunday night, as well as razzing from friends in the business, including a rare appearance from David Letterman.
However, it was Miley Cyrus' attempt to honor him musically -- with a rendition of Frank Sinatra's "My Way" -- that made headlines, because the singer screwed it up. "F***, I f***ed up," Cyrus was reportedly heard saying, adding to the celeb-heavy crowd, "Sorry guys, I got too stoned."
To Paul Shaffer, the band leader, she apologized, saying, "We worked on this. He told me not to smoke too much and I forgot."
Miley reportedly walked offstage, and her pal Murray attempted to cover for her, throwing jokes from his balcony seat. "This is happening right now in Washington DC, the 51st state in the union!" he exclaimed to laughs.
Eventually, Cyrus came back out, and the second go-'round went more smoothly.
Other guests there to honor -- and gently roast -- Murray were Ghostbusters his co-star Sigourney Weaver, along with Jimmy Kimmel and Aziz Ansari.
Before the show, Murray -- who also got to meet President Barack Obama over the weekend -- was asked what the two of them talked about. "Putting," he replied.
The ceremony will air on PBS October 28th at 9:00 P.M.
