PITNBR emily, you’re just gonna have to deal with the JT takeover. I know, I know. It’s hard, but it’s happening, lol! Justin Timberlake has been promoting his forthcoming album like cray, and now the whooole world (or at least, those watching the Grammy Awards) is about to be on their Suit & Tie ish. JT will open tonight’s Grammys with a performance of his single Suit & Tie, along with a previously unheard track. I’m pretty pumped! Click inside for more!
Complex has the deets:
Justin Timberlake will open up this year’s Grammy Awards with a performance of his new single “Suit & Tie,”and also with a brand new song that has never been heard before. Ken Ehrlich, the show’s executive producer, told Entertainment Weekly, “[Justin] played five or six tracks for me just two or three weeks ago, and the great thing is not only is he doing a song that everybody has heard by now, but he’s also going to tack on to that something that nobody has heard. So we’ve got a nice little world premiere going with him that’s very, very exciting.”
It’s unknown whether or not Jay-Z will join Justin on stage for “Suit & Tie,” and the premiere will most likely be off his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience, which is due out March 19, though it has not been confirmed.
Tune in to the 55th Annual Grammy Awards tomorrow night at 8pm EST to see JT’s opening act.
Well, I’m gonna need some Jay-Z up in there, so that’s one issue. I’m also really curious about the new song Justin‘s going to perform. We’ve already heard two other tracks from The 20/20 Experience, and I’m assuming it’s not one of those. Either way, I’m expecting good things!
I’d heard rumors that Taylor Swift was opening the show and, while I do rocks with Swifty, I prefer this news. What do y’all think? How will JT come back in his first big-time, big-deal performance?!
