German viewers were in for a treat as both Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars performed on Wetten, Dass..? Saturday (February 23), but thanks to the magic of the Internet, we American fans can watch the double bill, too! Though the two superstars didn’t perform together, it was still a pairing we’ve been itching to see, since Timberlake’s newer stuff (“Suit & Tie,” “Pusher Love Girl”) has the retro-crooner classiness of Mars’ older stuff, and Bruno’s newer stuff has the pop lothario swagger of JT’s older stuff.
Justin performed “Mirrors,” perhaps to distinguish himself as the one with the futuresexier sound (but more likely because it’s his latest single), and we’re hoping it’s a preview of what we can expect from his SNL gig next month. JT was smooth as ever, and went into the crowd where two brave fans proceeded to snap a pic with the singer.
Meanwhile, gearing up for his Moonshine Jungle world tour, Bruno performed his hit “Locked Out Of Heaven,” which you can watch below. There was no help from Sting this time, but man, the song is still just as catchy as it was back in October.
