After winning the first award of the evening for Favorite Pop/Rock Male, Justin Timberlake performed “Drink You Away” for the first time on television at Sunday’s American Music Awards. Looking sharp in a black suit, JT strummed a guitar while singing with his band, JT & the Tennessee Kids.
“We’re JT and the Tennessee Kids and this is a song about alcohol,” said Justin while introducing his 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2 single.
He later picked up the award for Favorite Soul/R&B Male Artist and shouted out Rihanna’s mother. “Can we talk about how cute Rihanna’s mom is?” he said.
