Following his “SNL” appearance, the crooner will do a full week’s worth of performances and “chatting” with Jimmy Fallon on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” during the week of March 11 to 15. Might we see another history of rap on the show? We’ll have to wait and see.
“His visit will mark the first time any featured artist has appeared in every show during a single week!” he said.
These appearances all lead up to the release of his latest solo album, “The 20/20 Experience,” dropping March 19 after Timberlake’s hiatus from music since 2006 to focus on his acting career.
The former NSYNC frontman made his highly anticipated return to the Grammy Awards stage earlier this month with Jay-Z, who is featured on Timberlake’s comeback single “Suit & Tie.” The two are reportedly in talks to co-headline a stadium tour this summer, according to Pop & Hiss.
Shortly after the Grammys, he released “Mirrors,” another song from the album, and then performed the single for eager fans at the Brit Awards in London on Wednesday.
Timberlake married longtime girlfriend Jessica Biel in Italy in October 2012 and we get a glimpse of their wedded bliss in his “Suit & Tie” music video when she pops up to light his cigarette.
The ‘Suit & Tie’ singer dances up the chart with his new video.
This week’s Social 50 chart brings a new entrant into the top 10, as Justin Timberlake climbs 18-9 off the success of his “Suit & Tie” video that bowed on Feb. 14.
The two-year old Social 50 chart ranks the most popular artists on YouTube, Vevo, Facebook, Twitter, SoundCloud, Wikipedia, Myspace and Instagram. The chart’s methodology blends weekly additions of friends/fans/followers along with artist pageviews, song plays and reactions.
This is Timberlake’s first week in the top 10 after 88 weeks on the list. He jumps after adding over 456,000 fans to his overall fan base (up 2.4% over the previous week). 193,000 of these fans were added on Facebook alone, spurred by a 74% rise in conversation about the artist on the platform.
The views to the “Suit and Tie” official video prompted a 95% rise in weekly video views to Timberlake’s VEVO channel, which added 14 million new views during the charting week.
Yessssss, SNL haas finally confirmed an upcoming Justin appearance!

I can’t wait
well I was going to get to bed, but then noticed these…
Justin live at the Forum in London tonight! Justin performed in front of an instantly sold out crowd and proud wife Jess
got pictures or videos? send them to email@example.com and I’ll post them!!!
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.
perez hilton posted this pic earlier of Justin getting ready for the big show.
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.
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are accompanied by a bodyguard while making their way into LAX Airport for a departing flight on Saturday (February 16) in Los Angeles.
The 32-year-old singer and the 30-year-old actress have been laying low on the west coast after JT‘s performance at the 2013 Grammys and his solo concert following the show.
Justin is reportedly gearing up to head out on a short 10-city tour with Jay-Z, according to Rolling Stone. Can’t wait to find out if it’s true!
