Performer Info

Justin Timberlake: In the nearly twenty years since his professional career began, Justin Timberlake has been known as an extremely talented actor, dancer, and pop singer. He's become an icon in today's society and his movies, albums, and tour dates have made him one of the US's most prominent celebrities. Both during his career with acclaimed boy band N'Sync and in his solo career, Timberlake has released six platinum albums and won as many Grammy Awards.

A brief yet successful stint on The New Mickey Mouse Club led to Timberlake's successful audition for the boy band, N'Sync. As one half of the group's lead singers (JC Chasez being the other), Justin achieved international super stardom that included sold-out tour dates and albums that flew off the shelves. As N'Sync was breaking up in 2002, Timberlake released his debut solo album, Justified, which featured a hip hop sound thanks to producers The Neptunes and Timbaland. Singles like "Cry Me a River" and "Rock Your Body" successfully launched his solo career and the album itself won two Grammys. Justin's second solo album, FutureSex/LoveSounds faired even better, breaking digital sales records and winning another two Grammys.

After five years without an album, Timberlake released the highly anticipated and applauded The 20/20 Experience, followed months later by The 20/20 Experience -- 2 of 2. The albums showcased a more mature sound, shying away from electronic backing in favor of a big band. The albums also featured more traditional songs with a hip hop style, combining the sounds that made him famous with a more traditional style.
