Shot glass in one hand, microphone in the other, Justin Timberlake declared himself a Hawks fan. For the true blue Melbourne audience, it was a turning point. The first half of Timberlake’s 20/20 Experience World Tour had been clunky, uneven and underwhelming but the ship was slowly turning itself around, aided by whiz bang audience interaction, a dose of wit and later on by strong vocal and instrumental performances. It really was a case of saving the best for last.
Last time Justin Timberlake graced Melbourne, it was immediately after bringing sexy back, in 2007 at the 15,000 seater Rod Laver. This time round it was in the significantly less acoustically pleasing, 53,000 seater, Etihad Stadium. In the intervening period, Timberlake has leveraged his monolith musical success to nab roles around Hollywood and on Saturday Night Live.
It was strange then that we had to wait 1.5 half hours into the 2.5 hour show for Timberlake to give away any of that trademark humour. Solid opening track Pusher Love Girl opened out to litany of early hits including Like I Love Youand Rock Your Body from the 2002 break out album, Justified, followed by track from FutureSex/LoveSounds. A curious choice to load up the front of the show with old hits when the billing had well and truly been for his 2013 double CD release, The 20/20 Experience.
Despite this, LoveStoned was a highlight, as were the mesmerising video projections that went with it, a bold moment in a show that mostly felt stale. A cover of Jay-Z’s Holy Grailfading into Cry Me A River also proved fun.
Following the interval, things started picking up. A heavy-on-the-twang Drink You Awaywas both musically brilliant (with Timberlake on the guitar and ably supported by his full brass band, and back-up singers) and visually arresting. It was the highlight of the night.
ouch! well this guy is a moron! lol….. clearly majority of people who have seen it cant be wrong…. after all the same people go several times.
Already, there are promos online for the iPhone 6 — and the company recruited some big names to help sell them.
Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake star in the ads for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus — well, sort of. You won’t see their faces in the new ad, but you’ll hear their voices coming out of your TV over the next few months.
i only post these for the photos… WOJ does not support this lie nor does it see any truth behind these allegations. I personally i know how it is to be seen talking to someone in a club and people thinking otherwise. Its hard to hear in those places so you have to bend down or lean close to hear.
crazy right ??
Justin brought “SexyBack” to the top of Billboard Hot 100! I can’t believe it’s been 8 years since FSLS.
(So, I realized that it’s not Sept 9th in the US just yet, but it is where I am)
i posted the video before of justin on the aussie new show “sunrise”, which is going to feature justin all week long. Talking about the tour, life on the road and life as he knows it.
SHE’S bringing sexy back on Channel 7 and he’s the pop prince who enjoyed global success with the track he penned by the same name.
And it’s this cheeky point that bonds the two celebrities during a hot new Justin Timberlakeexclusive interview by Samantha Armytage to air on Sunrise this week.
Jetting to Las Vegas earlier this month to score the rare, access-all-areas chat with the entertainer, Armytage says she was wowed by his industry smarts and more than a little taken with his sexy charms.
Teasing her he could “come after you” over copyright of the Seven makeover show’s title, Armytage offers to dig around in her wallet for some cash before Timberlakequips: “You might owe me a little bit but I’m going to let it slide.”
Squiring this month’s Australian Women’s Weekly cover girl behind-the-scenes of his MGM Grand concert, before giving her a shout out during the show, it’s little wonder this single lady returned home gushing about Timberlake.
all you aussies get a treat, Justin will be on “sunrise” all week long. Thank you stacey for the heads up!
