Saturday Night Live March 9th, 2013
Hosting : Justin Timberlake
Musical Guest : Justin Timberlake
I can’t wait
damn…. gorgeous!! not many can pull off the look, but he does it well. I personally loved his performance tonight. Some fans were disappointed with what they say was lack of energy or effort, however I love the song and saw plenty of effort. His vocals were great and you can clearly hear his heart through the song. but anyways, I have added tons of HQ images from the red carpet and his performance, as well as screen captures from the show which was televised on fuse network.
Well I’m beat, but must get some sleep, work awaits in the morning!

Britt awards performance 2013
MORE COMING SOON!!!
Justin Timberlake had something special up his Tom Ford-stitched sleeves at Wednesday (February 20) night’s BRIT Awards: the first-ever live performance of his new song “Mirrors.”
Yes, though JT released the song last week — sometime in-between his Grammy performance and his memorable post-Grammy concert — he waited until the BRITs to actually perform it, taking the stage in London’s O2 Arena and wowing an audience packed with the best and brightest of British music (and, uh, Taylor Swift too).
He started the performance solo, standing beneath a spotlight, decked out in his now ubiquitous suit and tie (not that one). While his backing band worked their way into the song, Timberlake began working the catwalk, clutching a mic stand and crooning for all in attendance. When he finally joined his musical mates on stage, “Mirrors” truly took shape, rolling out on muscled-up guitars and horns … and sounding every bit like the retro-tinged follow-up to “Cry Me A River” that many have already dubbed it (for the record, it also recalled UB40′s take on Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”)
And as the song reached its crescendo — thanks to Timberlake’s lean voice and some stirring string stabs — spotlights scanned the O2 Arena and JT sang for the rafters, before finally bringing things back to a boil and leading the audience in a clap-along of the chorus. Unlike the album version, this take on “Mirrors” didn’t stretch to eight minutes — that surely would have bothered BRIT producers — but it still managed to work in much of the same dramatics. And hey, why would Timberlake give the whole thing away right now? There’s still plenty of time before he drops The 20/20 Experience, and, one could assume, even more opportunities for surprise performances like this one.
Wireless festival 2013 will see separate headline appearances from both Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z.
Justin will headline on Friday 12 July, which will be his only UK festival performance. He will be joined by Snoop Dogg, Trey Songz, John Legend, Miguel and Frank Ocean.
Jay-Z will headline on Saturday 13 July which will be his only European performance this year.
The Saturday line-up includes Emeli Sande, Rita Ora, Kendrick Lamar, DJ Fresh and Calvin Harris.
This will be the festival’s first time being located at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, which was host to the Olympic Games last year, as opposed to the previous location of Hyde Park.
Tickets go on sale Friday 22 February at 9am. For more information, visit Gigwise Gig Tickets.
Justin Timberlake also recently announced a one-off London show at Kentish Town’s Forum, which will take place after his performance at the BRITs.
Tickets for the show were priced at £50, and went on sale via Live Nation and Ticketmaster – but it wasn’t long before they sold out due to high demand.
The 55th annual Grammys are in Los Angeles and, as of Thursday (February 7), so is Jay-Z, which makes for good odds that the Roc Nation CEO, after skipping the show for the previous two years, will be in Staples Center Sunday night. Place cards also show that he and Beyonce are supposed to be seated next to Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel.
Paparazzi photos placed Hov, along with Beyoncé, and one-year old daughter, Blue Ivy, in Venice after hip-hop’s first family had lunch at Gjelina restaurant, a trendy celebrity hot spot on Abbot Kinney Blvd, sparking industry-wide debates about whether or not Jay plans to be in the building to watch Bey present or, better yet, join Justin Timberlake on stage while he performs his latest single, “Suit & Tie,” from his highly-anticipated comeback album, The 20/20 Experience.
Jigga recently performed with JT in New Orleans ahead of Super Bowl XLVII at the DirecTV Super Saturday Night party, which is a good indication that he’ll help the “SexyBack” singer make his first performance slot on the show in nearly four years one for the record books.
Stepping on stage in a “Tom Ford tuxedo for no reason” to drop opulent lines like “All Saints for my angel/Alexander Wang too/Ass tight denim and some Dunks/I show you how to do this Young,” will only add to the telecast’s hip-hop presence, which is the one of the “99 Problems” Hov originally had with the Grammys back in 2002 when he famously boycotted the program.
“I am boycotting the Grammys because too many major rap artists continue to be overlooked,” he said at the time. “Rappers deserve more attention from the Grammy committee and from the whole world. If it’s got a gun everybody knows about it; but if we go on a world tour, no one knows.”
Memorable performances notwithstanding, the minority owner of the Brooklyn Nets also has six other golden reasons not to eschew the ceremony this year: nominations for Best Rap Performance for “N—as In Paris” and “I Do,” Best Rap Song for “N—as In Paris,” Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “No Church in the Wild” and “Talk That Talk” and Best Short Form Music Video for “No Church in the Wild,” from his joint LP with Kanye West, Watch the Throne.
Like Fun., Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean and Kanye West, Jay has a whopping six noms, which means that odds are really good that he’ll add at least one more gramophone to his collection of 14, which includes a Best Rap Album win in 1999 for his five times platinum third studio album, Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life.
yesterday I told you guys about Justin’s surprise appearance at Timbaland’s LA show for the pre grammy event, well here are two picctures. Justin looks fantastic.
Talk about a being a good great friend.
Justin Timberlake was the surprise guest during his pal Timbaland’s performance at last night’s launch of the United Nations Foundation’s new mobile initiative, mPowering Action, at the Conga Room in downtown Los Angeles.
J.T. joined Timbaland on stage to perform their hit “Carry Out” for an enthusiastic crowd of twentysomethings, including hottie Kellan Lutz, his Twilight costar Nikki Reed and her husband, Paul McDonald. Also in the audience was Timberlake’s fellow ‘NSync member Joey Fatone and his wife Kelly. (Fatone told me he and Timberlake talked a couple of weeks ago for their birthdays, which are just three days apart.)
Dressed in a white shirt, black sweater and jacket and a black ski cap, Timberlake ended the song with a shout-out to Timbaland before leaving the stage with smile and a simple, “See you on Sunday.”
Timberlake is not only performing at the Grammys on Sunday, but also later that night, he’ll do the same at an after-party at the Palladium in Hollywood.
The 32-yar-old singer recently released “Suit & Tie,” the first single from his much-buzzed-about upcoming third solo album, The 20/20 Experience.
Also at the mPowering event were Timbaland’s wife Monique Mosley, Estelle, Pharrell Williams and Lamorne Morris.
anyone got pics??
If last year’s Grammy Awards were remembered for Adele’s triumphs and Whitney Houston’s tributes, this year’s likely belongs to the return of Justin Timberlake and the rise of Frank Ocean.
Perhaps no other performance is more anticipated for this Sunday’s live telecast than Timberlake’s. The last time he graced the Grammy stage was 2009, when he stepped in at the last minute to perform a duet with Al Green.
Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the awards, told ABC News that Timberlake “saved our lives” with his last-minute performance of “Let’s Stay Together,” which filled a hole in the broadcast — a hole that was caused — Ehrlich noted — by “that little drop-out with Chris Brown and Rihanna.”
Both artists, then a couple, pulled out of the show following Brown’s assault on Rihanna.
“We’ve missed him,” Ehrlich said of Timberlake.
So have his music fans. This will be Timberlake’s first musical appearance in support of his first new solo work since 2006. Not yet known is whether he’ll perform his recently released “Suit & Tie,” the retro-minded soul single featuring Jay-Z, or unveil something new.
Billboard editor Joe Levy told ABC News that Timberlake sent Ehrlich a track that he was thinking of performing, leading many to believe that it could be a new song, not currently on the radio.
Timberlake won’t be the only performer people will be talking about. There will, of course, be the discussion of who was wearing what, although CBS took the unusual step of issuing a “clothing advisory,” advising talent to be sure their “buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered” as well as their genitals covered so that there is no visible ‘puffy’ bare skin exposure.”
“It is a black tie affair so you hate to see anyone turn up wearing a handkerchief,” Levy said. “Then again, it is rock and roll, so you gotta expect it.”
