It was the best day of his life, but Justin Timberlake wasn’t feeling one hundred percent when he became a married man October 19.

Despite not feeling so hot, Timberlake pushed through to serenade his bride at the reception. “Justin performed one song at the wedding,” a source reveals. “It’s a new one that he hasn’t released yet. He dedicated it to Jessica.”
