Bff’s Justin and Jimmy Fallon were once again amazing on Fallon’s new late night show. They did a 5th version of history of rap:
It was also a no surprise that JT performed his current single “Not a bad thing” Enjoy below, the beautiful performance:
Finally they sat for an interview where they discussed their Christmas SNL appereance in which JT does a spot on impression of Fallon:
JT also had a hilarious message for the Buffalo crowd for post-poning Saturday night’s concert due to logistical problems with the stage:
Don’t flip JT in a concert cause he will put you in your place like he always does… lmao.
A fan flipped the bird to JT during a concert in Philly to get noticed I guess. He saw the “gesture” and his reactions was hilarious, specially his make-up expression ROTFL. Check it out below:
This week, Timberlake brings his 20/20 Experience World Tour (codirected with Kudelka, among others) to New York with a two-night run at Madison Square Garden, while also heading to 30 Rock on Friday as a guest on Jimmy Fallon’s new Tonight Show. (Last night’s MSG performance was postponed due to health reasons; we’re rooting for Timberlake tonight and tomorrow.) We spoke to the choreographer about working with an acclaimed film director, why he first got into dance, and Timberlake’s jaw-dropping skills.
You’ve been working with Timberlake for quite a while. How did you meet?
I was still on and off with Janet, and I got a phone call in my hotel room one day. I thought it was just one of the dancers messing with me. They’re like, “Hey, this is ’NSYNC’s tour manager, and Justin wants to get on the phone with you,” and I hung up! Our world is so small, he got in touch with somebody from our camp. I did a video for [’NSYNC], and the first tour that I codirected ended up being their last. About a month later, Justin called and said, “Hey, man, I think I’m going to do a solo record, and I want you to be a part of it.” He hadn’t recorded one single song yet, and I was in.
What’s it like in the studio with him?
He is—and I mean this—one of the most talented people I’ve ever met. He’s really a perfectionist. He makes everyone better, from the band to the dancers to the choreography. We all have to step our game up.
How did you approach the choreography for “Suit & Tie”?
It starts with the music. It’s very Rat Pack–ish. But, you know, I’m not going to have them break-dance with Tom Ford suits on; it doesn’t match musically or style-wise. It’s very nonchalant, almost new-school jazzy.
Did you have a role in the Tonight Show performance for Friday?
[Justin] will probably only do two songs that he can just get up with his band and do—not a lot of heavy choreography. He could freestyle around, too, if need be. Those two guys, get them in a room together and they’re the funniest people on earth.
As a consequence of the postponement of the Justin Timberlake 20/20 Experience World Tour concert previously scheduled for Wednesday, February 19th in New York City, the concert at First Niagara Center in Buffalo on February 22nd will be postponed to July 9th it was announced today by Live Nation.
The rescheduled performance in Buffalo, NY is confirmed for Wednesday, July 9th at First Niagara Center.
Tickets for the previously scheduled show will be honored at the door.
Refunds if necessary available at point of purchase.
They didnt give a reason this time around. But I think its obvious Justin is still not feeling well and needs more time to recover. It can also be due to the logistics of transporting the stage to the next city. Either way I hope JT gets some good rest before the show on monday!
I never thought I’d get to see Justin Timberlake’s shapely posterior from a distance of six feet but on Thursday night at Madison Square Garden, the good folks of section 104 got one hell of a surprise.
Halfway through the second set, the samba best of “Let The Groove Get In” saw Timberlake and his six dancers begin to move across one end of the arena to the other atop a giant platform. As it came to rest in mid-air, JT moved to each side and for the (mostly) screaming women positioned underneath, it was a view they’ll probably treasure well into the afterlife.
It’s safe to say that Timberlake can still make hearts race and feet move. His appeal doesn’t seem to have waned even after a year of near constant exposure. Not only has he been pushing two volumes of “The 20/20 Experience,” he also embarked on a stadium tour with Jay Z, made small but much-discussed roles in major movies and spent weeks at a time on the talk show circuit. Just about the only thing he didn’t do in the name of publicity is co-host the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams.
But watching the 33 year old perform puts paid to any symptoms of fatigue. For two and half hours (divided by just one 10 minute intermission), the boy from Memphis and his band the Tennessee Kids waltzed through an impeccable set.
The hits came at the sold out crowd in a blur as Timberlake opened with the stoned soul of “Pusher Love Girl” before unleashing an uninterrupted 20-minute segment featuring smash hit singles like “Rock Your Body” and “Like I Love You.” Decked out in his trademark suit and tie, Timberlake made the choreography look like second nature and he showed very few signs of the ill health that forced him to postpone Wednesday night’s gig just minutes before doors opened.
The second half of the show was where Timberlake’s variety act kicked in and if anything, it was even more entertaining. Padding the show with covers is usually the work of an amateur but Timberlake handled Elvis Presley’s “Heartbreak Hotel” and Michael Jackson’s “Human Nature” with love and care before moving back to his own crowd pleasers.
Having worked every inch of the arena and brought every member of the crowd to their feet, “Suit & Tie,” “Sexy Back” and the still incomparable R & B of “Mirrors” rounded off the night in a way that was faultless. Familiarity usually breeds contempt but when watching this, it’s hard to feel anything other than awe and excitement.
Wednesday’s postponed performance has been rescheduled for Friday 21st. If you have tickets then know this: the seats at the back are probably the best ones in the house. Make sure those camera phones are charged.
I spent an hour and a half with Pharrell yesterday while he played his new album, Girl, in its entirety.
The whole record is gorgeous, an ode, in Pharrell’s words, “to woman everywhere”. It’s eleven tracks long and features a bunch of special guests including Daft Punk.
Other guests on the record include Justin Timberlake, Miley Cyrus and Alicia Keys. Hans Zimmer scored the strings.
The album is out 3rd March and avaliable to pre-order now.
Update: Check out the tracklist from the album. Justin is featured on a song called “Brand New”:
1. “Marilyn Monroe”
2. “Brand New” (feat. Justin Timberlake)
6. “Come Get It” (feat. Miley Cyrus)
7. “Dust of Wind” (feat. Daft Punk)
8. “Lost Queen”
10. “I Know Who You Are” (feat. Alicia Keys)
11. “It Girl”
According to a journalist who heard the album, Brand New can be described as follows:
‘Brand New’ is pure Off The Wall Michael Jackson at the peak of his disco funk powers, with its carnal exhalations, falsetto harmonies and plucked bass notes that dance all over the fretboard before being carried away on rising horns and strings. Pharrell says the song “felt so urgent,” and it does, embodying the same surging breathlessness that both the King of Pop and JT brought to their best work.
Remember the rumor of JT, Timbaland and Pharrell filming a video for a song called “Been it” ? Well a snippet of the filming leaked online and for now it sounds kind of horrible. You can’t even hear JT singing on the track. So let’s hope that if this is the track they did together, the finished product sounds better.
