Justin Timberlake To Perform At Grammys, No Suit & Tie Required
As part of his return to music, Justin Timberlake has been lining up some live gigs. He’s starting with a Super Bowl event this weekend and on Wednesday Grammy affiliates announced Timberlake would return to the big event to perform for the first time in four years—which is pretty fitting, considering the man has won six of the awards throughout his career.
Unfortunately, Timberlake’s big return to music wasn’t in time to earn him a nomination this year, but he will get the chance to perform alongside a slew of today’s relevant music icons, including Mumford & Sons, Taylor Swift, Fun., The Black Keys, Carried Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Rihanna, Jack White, and Dierks Bentley. Additionally, MTV is reporting a duet between Elton John and nominee Ed Sheeran will also be part of the ceremony, so Timberlake has his work cut out if he hopes to be the standout of the night.
When Timberlake decides to do something, he usually pushes the limit. The former boy band member and more recent actor has worked really hard to get where he is and he is bringing that work ethic to his return to music. The singer recently dropped “Suit & Tie,” a song featuring Jay-Z that charted in its first week and has even created a music video for the single. With a couple of live performances already set, it looks like Timberlake the musician is back in fine form. Don’t take my word for it, though, see it for yourself, below.
