after a short break, JT and the TN kids are back on stage to kick off the international portion of the 20/20 experience tour.
A band, The Tennessee Kids, rise from underneath the stage. They are a powerhouse, loaded with soaring backing singers, thunderous drums, euphoric brass and screeching funk guitar, they are as pristine as JT’s primed and perfected dance moves and they frequently play at floor-shaking volume.
The surging gusto that erupts from the first set-closer ‘Cry Me a River’ is enthralling.
At 33 JT still looks boyish, with a perfect Disney smile still in tact, but this tour is him smoothing over the teenybopper past and presenting himself as something more fitting for his age: as sleek and stylish, as gentlemanly and venerable.
It is a performance laden with lavishness and sexual teasing (when Timberlake gropes his crotch it sets off a tidal wave of screams). With a steady stream of “f**k’s” throughout the night, he seems to be cultivating an almost ‘loveable rogue’ aura around himself, like a James Bond of pop or a zeitgeist Sinatra.
During the second set the stage rises up and glides across the audience (to much excitement). There are covers of Elvis, Michael Jackson and even Kool & The Gang. T
The penultimate ‘Sexyback’ is a knockout and the closing ‘Mirrors’ even prompts a successful marriage proposal in the audience before Timberlake disappears into darkness once again, leaving behind a mammoth two hour-plus voyage of pop.

If you thought Dawson Leary was the most “uncool” guy of all time, well, you were wrong.
James Van Der Beek stopped by HuffPost Live on Wednesday, March 26, and revealed that, back in the day, he tried to sneak Justin Timberlake and some of the other underage members of *NSYNC into a club in Las Vegas.
Yup, THAT Justin Timberlake. And yup, THAT James Van Der Beek.
“I was in Vegas one New Year’s and somebody came by and said, ‘*NSYNC wants to meet you!’ And at the time, *NSYNC was the second to Backstreet Boys, it was before they had blown up. They had just come out with some Christmas album, like at the same time 98 Degrees did,” Van Der Beek laughed, referencing the boy band’s 1998 holiday album “Home for Christmas.”
“So, I said, ‘OK.’ And I met them and they were so sweet, they were so nice. They were such cool kids and I immediately liked them,” he added. “I remember that night, we were all going to some club and they were all too young. And so I went in and somehow passed my I.D. back so that Justin could get in with my I.D. And then Justin got in and then tried to pass it off to Lance [Bass] to get in. By the third time [the bouncers] saw a James Van Der Beek I.D., they were like, ‘Ah, I don’t think so James.’” Poor Lance!
We’re assuming J.C. Chasez attempted to use Joshua Jackson’s I.D.? Just a thought.
Heading home after a successful session, Justin Timberlake made his way out of a recording studio in LA on Friday (March 21).
Exiting in casual duds, the “Suit & Tie” song star sported a black beanie with a striped button down and jeans, pointing at the cameras, and throwing a quick thumbs-up as he turned his back.
Not a bad thing! Justin Timberlake snuck in a romantic getaway with his wife Jessica Biel for her 32nd birthday between his North American and European 20/20 tours.
Justin and Jessica jetted down to Barbados on March 14 to celebrate her March 3 birthday, according to Us Weekly. The couple rented out a private villa near the Sandy Lane resort.
JT chartered a $1,125-per-day catamaran Seaduced to take the couple wakeboarding. Jessica showed off a rocking bikini bod while she managed to stay upright on her board much better than her pop superstar husband.
“Justin wasn’t very good at wakeboarding,” an onlooker told Us. He even wiped out once. “Jessica was much better!”
On the water, Jessica, a self-described “adrenaline junkie,” wore a printed body suit top over her ocean-printed bikini. Both played it safe, wearing their protective life vests while on the board.
“They looked madly in love as they joked around,” an eyewitness told Us.
Jessica soaked up some sun on the back of the boat, tying a light scarf around her neck and putting on her dark shades.
The happily-in-love couple enjoyed the next day on dry land playing a round of golf and enjoying a romantic dinner by the sea.
Justin finished up the North American leg of his tour on March 5 and will set out his European concerts on March 30, starting at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield, U.K.
