Justin Timberlake Thrills at Post-Grammy Show in Hollywood

Justin Timberlake made his big return onstage at Sunday’s Grammys. Following his performance, he continued his comeback tour with an intimate gig at the Hollywood Palladium. The sold-out show was the hottest ticket in town, drawing celebrities including Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and his wife Jessica Biel.

Dressed in a black tuxedo, J.T. kicked off his 90-minute set with his debut single “Like I Love You,” backed by his 12-piece band “JT & the Tennessee Kids.” He played familiar hits such as “My Love” and “Rock Your Body,” and remixed “Cry Me a River” with “Bandz a Make Her Dance” and “Ni**as in Paris.”

“I just want to take the opportunity to thank all of you for coming out tonight,” he told the crowd. “I must confess, it’s been awhile. And for that, I apologize. It’s going to be a fun year. I hope to see all of your drunk faces when I come back on tour at the Staples Center.”

He showcased two new songs off his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience including “Pusher Love Girl” and “That Girl,” and covered INXS’ “What You Need.” One of the highlights was his funky take on The Jacksons’ “Shake Your Body (Down to the Ground),” complete with pelvic thrusts that made the mostly-female audience swoon.

And of course, he once again brought out Jay-Z for “Suit & Tie” before closing with “SexyBack,” for which he was joined by Timbaland.

Before leaving the stage, he delivered a special message to his fans. “I love each and every one of you,” said the 32-year-old singer. “Don’t let that stupid fucking media tell you any different.”

Watch his performances of “Suit & Tie” with Jay-Z, “Cry Me a River,” and “Shake Your Body” right here.

    [...] that with Hov’s approval, it couldn’t have been anything but great. He’s the baddest white boy in the game right now and is album isn’t even out [...]

    I’m not buying this I don’t care how much they want the “golden, down white boy” to succeed. He’s part Prince, part James Brown, part Robin Thicke… all fake. He relies on the hip-hop/r&b community for production and features but you can tell its all fabricated.

    @Speechless, I just being honest. I’m not pressed about anything. They are trying extra hard to push JT and his lackluster image…that’s all.

    @Ursula, You are pressed. You know why? Because you don’t have to like him, and yet you took time to make your opinion available. Why do we need to know how you feel? You could have not commented and give a JT post one less comment and yet you gave it an additional two.

    Feel how you want. I’m not saying you’re wrong. But your accusations are a bit off.

    Have a nice day. I really mean that. I don’t mean to knock your opinion, I just felt like you would have said so much more in regards to your opinion by not commenting at all.

    @derierre-n-dereons, How exactly did what you claim “show” last night? Dude did fine.

    @Ursula, Why the fuck are you so damn abrasive? Do you have anything good to say about JT or any artist? Must suck being bitter.

    @Ursula, “They” don’t have to want the “golden boy” to succeed. He’s already succeeded. Check his credentials. People of all ages and ethnic backgrounds love him, so you internet racists can cry together when he’s racking up critical/commercial acclaim and more awards than you will ever have.

    @Yasmine, Well if that makes you feel better, more power 2 ya. Still doesn’t change anything. Goodbye.

    @Ursula, You definitely have something there. His dancing is so awkward it’s painful to watch. He wouldn’t have a sound without Timbo (or Pharrell). Fact.

    I thought the performance was great. I have never purchased JT music but I like him as an artist as well as his soulful demeanor. On a side noted Jay-Z could have remained in his seat, he is such an arrogant individual.
