Watch Justin Timberlake’s Full Rock In Rio Concert

Justin Timberlake is an outstanding performer. You are probably already aware of this, at the very least because of his 2013 MTV VMA marathon performance. But a JT concert is even more spectacular than that medley, of course, because you get full songs, and you get Timberlake in full-on entertainer mode as he croons, dances, plays the guitar, tickles the ivories and interacts with his band with the ease of a dude who just rolled out of bed and decided to fire up the Xbox.

Unfortunately, it can be very hard to snag tickets to a JT show, so many of his fans never have the pleasure of seeing him sweat through a rock-ified version of “Cry Me A River.” Today, though, we have the next best thing: Timberlake’s full Rock in Rio concert from Sunday (September 15) is available to stream online. One day after Beyonce headlined the Rio de Janeiro festival, JT played to 85,000 rabid fans, treating them to classics like “Rock Your Body” and “My Love,” as well as fare from The 20/20 Experience like “Suit & Tie,” “Tunnel Vision” and latest single “Take Back The Night.”

Watch his career-spanning 90-minute set below (which had fans crying a mere 30 seconds into it). More »

Whatcha Say: Britney Spears, Lady Gaga & Azealia Banks Got Our Readers Talking

Another week, another boatload of pop music news! This week saw the release of many great albums, including The Weeknd‘s Kiss Land, Janelle Monae‘s The Electric Lady, Goldfrapp‘s Tales of UsTamar Braxton‘s Love & War and 2 ChainzBOATS II: Me Time. Newcomer Lorde blessed our ears with her new single, “Team” while Robin Thicke announced his upcoming tour with Jessie J. Lady Gaga managed to give a Wizard Of Oz-inspired performance of “Applause” on Good Morning America, shade Azealia Banks and apologize to Christina Aguilera in a matter of a few days.

In this week’s “She’s Just Being Miley!” news, Miley Cyrus is officially on Kanye West‘s “Black Skinheads” remix. She also released her kinda-NSFW video for “Wrecking Ball” and showed off her rapping skills on Mike WiLL Made It‘s “23. Oh, Beyonce celebrated her 32nd birthday on a yacht in Italy, continuing to live better lives than us lessors.

We also held our Dancing Divas Ibrawlator, where Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, Britney Spears, Madonna and Ciara all battled it out for the ultimate dancing crown. The results are finally in! And the winner is….Beyonce!

Justin Timberlake & Jimmy Fallon Do The Evolution Of End Zone Dancing: Watch

JT-Fallon
Selfie!
It’s no secret that Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon have the ultimate bromance, from their entertaining “Evolution of Hip-Hop” performances to Fallon completely fangirling when JT was given the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at this year’s MTV VMAs. So it was a welcomed surprise when the “Take Back The Night” singer popped up on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon set to join the host for “The Evolution of End Zone Dancing.” The duo ran through some famous touchdown celebrations (“The Dirty Bird,” “Tebowing,” etc.), and included some hilarious new ones like “The Taking A Selfie” and “The Justin Timberlake (From *NSYNC).”

Timberlake’s guest spot is the first of this month’s “Timberlake Tuesdays,” where he’ll be appearing on Late Night every week this month to promote his forthcoming album The 20/20 Experience — 2 Of 2 — similar to his promotion for part one of The 20/20 Experience via weeklong residency on Fallon. The second half of the Experience boasts guest features from Jay Z and Drake, and more crazy-long songs. It’s set for a September 30 release. More »

Justin Timberlake Is Still Exploring The Studio Space: See The Crazy Track TRTs For ’20/20 Experience’ Vol. 2

Pop Justice spotted a listing of The 20/20 Experience — 2 Of 2 on Sony Germany’s site that apparently lists the track lengths for each of the album’s 11 songs. And if you were hoping Justin Timberlake got all the meandering epics out of his system on Volume 1, well, get ready to be disappointed. While, on the whole, the songs seem shorter this time around, this collection has the two longest tracks of the entire Experience: “True Blood” clocks in at 9:31 and closer “Not A Bad Thing” is 11:28. Three songs are just over 7:00, and the remaining tracks are in the five minute range.

Read on for the track TRTs and for some very basic mathematical comparisons between the two volumes. More »

Justin Timberlake & Bruno Mars See Post-MTV VMAs Surge On Album Chart

More People Gained 'Experience' Last Week
Four new album crash into the Top 10 of the Billboard 200, led by California hard-rockers Avenged Sevenfold, who debut at #1 with sixth album Hail To The King (159,000 copies sold). That pushes Luke Bryan‘s Crash My Party down to the runner-up spot, leaving Big Sean to go in at #3 with Hall Of Fame (87,000) and Juicy J to enter at #4 with Stay Trippy (64,000).

The rest of the upper tier of the Billboard 200 is a bit of a snooze ahead of several big September releases, though Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars manage to hop back up following their performances at the MTV Video Music Awards the other weekend. (As of July, JT’s The 20/20 Experience was already the year’s top album, with over 2 million copies sold.)
