Justin Timberlake to appear on 'SNL' anniversary special
Justin Timberlake's so-called 'comeback album,' "The 20/20 Experience," received positive reviews from critics and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 behind first-week sale of nearly one million copies. What it didn't earn were any Grammy awards. In fact, the pop star was shut out of every other major category – including song and record of the year. Will this year mark a turnaround for Timberlake?
Justin was nominated twice at the 2015 Grammys for the coveted album of the year award, thanks to his guest vocals on "Brand New" from Pharrell's album "G I R L" and for co-producing "Partition" on Beyonce's self-titled release.
Though he didn't take home any hardware, there's one place Timberlake will always have the proverbial seat at the table – on "Saturday Night Live." In fact, the five-time host has signed on appear at SNL's 40th anniversary special, alongside Paul McCartney, Kanye West, Paul Simon and Taylor Swift. The show airs February 15th at 8 p.m. on NBC and will be a three-hour event.
And finally, to prove that all is right in the world of Justin, we saved the best news for last. Justin recently celebrated his birthday with a photo of a very special 'present' posted to his Instagram account. The photo showed him kissing wife Jessica Biel's pregnant stomach. Justin wrote, "That you EVERYONE for the Bday wishes! This year, I'm getting the GREATEST GIFT EVER. CAN'T WAIT. #BoyOrGirl #YouNeverKnow #WeDontEvenKnow #WeAreTakingBets."
Justin Timberlake gets dressed up for "Suit and Tie" (Updated 2/13/14)
All the talk these days seems to be centered on Justin Timberlake's wardrobe. Or at least his "Suit and Tie."
When the video for Timberlake's latest single rolled out on January 10, 2014, he dished on his music making process in a video clip, saying, "I'm the one that sits and is obsessive about it before you even get to hear it."
And obsessive might be a good way to describe Timberlake, who has had his hands in other projects while working diligently to promote his third album "The 20/20 Experience." He was given a writing credit on track six on Beyonce's self-titled fifth studio album "Beyonce," which was given an iTunes release on December 13, 2013.
Then, in February, Timberlake joined in the online lovefest for Jay Leno's final episode of "The Tonight Show" when he tweeted, "Much love to the one and only @jayleno. Thank you for all thelaughs and great times! Also…Can I have a car? No? Ok, cool." And what did Timberlake do a few weeks later? Booked an appearance on one of the first episodes of "The Tonight Show Starting Jimmy Fallon."
Timberlake was also nominated for numerous awards at the Grammys this year (seven, to be exact), and is otherwise bringing "SexyBack" – and most of his other monster hits – to arenas across the country as part of his current tour. The 2 1/2-hour marathon shows feature all of the singing, dancing and showmanship Timberlake has become known for and continues through August 12, with the last date on the calendar penciled in for the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Justin Timberlake 20/20 Experience TourJustin Timberlake decided that he liked the first half of 2013 so much that he would do his best to duplicate it in the latter half of the year. Album release? Let's do that again. With a little push from Questlove, JT announced earlier this year that a second volume of his much-anticipated The 20/20 Experience would be released before the end of 2013. Concert tour that everyone's scrambling to see? Sure, let's make another one of those, too! After he and Jay-Z finish making the rounds, giving all of their fans an adequate dose of the Legends of Summer tour, Timberlake will support his new two-part album with The 20/20 Experience World Tour, coming to a city near you.
Fans of All Things Timberlake are certainly clamoring for second shots of the rest of the JT media blitz we've seen thus far in 2013. He hosted Saturday Night Live for a fifth time and co-hosted The Late Show with his buddy Jimmy Fallon for a whole week. Will Timberlake duplicate everything from the first album and achieve full 20/20 symmetry with these additional 22 concert dates? Or will he find new, unique things that merely aim to duplicate the buzz and satisfaction he gave to his loyal fans as a reward for their dedication during a six-year musical hiatus? He has certainly crafted a full, balanced entertaining experience for the entire industry this year, and it'll be interesting to see what the full vision looks like after both albums and both tours are on full display from the PNC Arena to the MGM Grand, for everyone to see.
