On Sept. 15 America will wake up on Beale Street.

According to Performa Entertainment Real Estate CEO John Elkington, ABC's "Good Morning America" will be filming on Beale Street on Sept. 15. The exact location has not been set yet, but there's a high probability that ABC's morning show with Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts will be broadcast from the corner of Beale Street and Third with the FedExForum in the background from 6-9 a.m.

"To be on national television for three hours is a great thing for the city of Memphis," Elkington said. "It's going to be exciting."

Justin Timberlake is going to headline the event as a part of Good Morning America's summer concert series.

The event was great. Justin is a true superstar. He did a great job promoting the city because usually the series is in New York.

Yeah on tv it made the crowd look immature or ignorant. There is a place and a time for everything. National tv is not one of them. Most people probably just booed because it was a cool thing to do. I don't like Bush Jr. but I would not stoop to booing him in public on national tv especially.

Thank you!

I couldn't agree more!
