Inside Justin Timberlake's Star-Studded Cinco de Mayo Show
Justin Timberlake welcomed his celebrity pals to a special show at NYC's Roseland Ballroom last night. The performance, which was organized to celebrate his new deal with MasterCard and billed as one of the credit card's "Priceless" events, brought out JT's SNL pals Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis. Justin's wife, Jessica Biel, was also in the wings cheering on her husband. Andy and Jason had their ladies too — they brought their respective fiancées, Joanna Newsom and Olivia Wilde. Also out for the performance were Julianne Hough, Uma Thurman, and Brooke Shields.
The Cinco de Mayo show gave Justin a chance to perform music from his latest album, The 20/20 Experience, which he recently announced will be followed up by The 20/20 Experience Part 2 in September. He sang plenty of his old songs too, from "Like I Love You" to "Cry Me a River" and "Senorita." Justin joked with the crowd, with quips like, "You're at an eight and a half. If you be honest with me, I'll be honest with you." He also asked, "Is anybody drunk yet?" After hearing some cheers, he added, "Good for you!" His frequent collaborator Timbaland emerged toward the end for a rendition of "SexyBack." It seems Justin had as great a time as the fans. He tweeted last night, "Thank you NYC and Roseland Ballroom! Had so much fun tonight. Lets do it again soon."
