Following performances from Beyoncé, Alicia Keys, and Jessie J, Justin Timberlake closed out the first weekend of Rock in Rio on Sunday. The pop superstar pulled out all the stops during his 100-minute set, opening with “Like I Love You” and performing hit after hit including “Cry Me a River,” “Suit & Tie,” and “Mirrors.” He also covered INXS’ “Need You Tonight” and rapped over Jay Z and Kanye West’s “Ni**as in Paris.”
“#RockInRio unforgettable,” tweeted Timberlake, who will kick off “The 20/20 Experience World Tour” on Oct. 31 in Montreal.
On Sept. 30, he will release the second half of his album The 20/20 Experience with 11 all-new songs including collaborations with Drake and Jay Z.
“If you could imagine you’re 16 and she’s everything you thought. She’s Marilyn Monroe and then you meet her older sister; everything that’s dark and wrong about her at that age is why you become infatuated with her,” he told T Magazine of the follow-up to this year’s best-selling album.
