Lady Gaga and Kanye West have been the dominating forces in the music world for the last few years, but one ultimate pop star has notably been absent: Justin Timberlake. But is all that about to change?

For years, Justin has regularly downplayed his return to the studio or stage. but in February, he teased bringing sexy back yet again, stating he might return to the studio this summer. Now, thanks to a charity auction listing, it appears we may have evidence of a potential 2012 tour.

The prize, as listed on Charity Buzz, is as follows:

“Attend one of Justin Timberlake’s 2012 concerts with 2 VIP tickets to the concert of your choice in industry seating followed by a meet and greet with the legendary, artist, actor, and entrepreneur.”

The terms of the auction mention that tour dates have not been announced (clearly), but the item was donated by Timberlake himself to benefit the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, which was founded by Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons, Russell Simmons and Danny Simmons to help disadvantaged urban youth through the arts.

It’s difficult to not see this as an accidental reveal of an impending 2012 tour (or something similar), considering Timberlake donated the prize himself to the charity auction site. The prize has an estimated value of $10,000, with a current bid of $4,250 being the highest. You have until Wednesday August 10 to dig through your couch cushions and see if you can scrape enough coin to win before the auction’s close.
