Justin Timberlake‘s coming back strong as he took the stage last night for his first concert in over five years at DIRECT TV’s Super Bowl “Super Saturday Night,” live from Mardi Gras World in New Orleans. The event, co-hosted by Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, was an invite-only affair to benefit the Shriners Hospital for Children, and featured Questlove as well, hyping the crowd up for JT’s return.
Justin Timberlake was dressed up in his black and white tuxedo of course and his set included “Like I Love You” and “SexyBack.” He also covered INXS‘ “Make You Sweat” and Michael Jackson‘s “Rock Your Body,” as well as a killer rendition of “Cry Me a River” set to Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s smash “N****s In Paris.” If that wasn’t enough, JT then brought out Jay-Z to perform his comeback single “Suit & Tie.”
Justin then debuted two new songs off his upcoming album The 20/20 Experience, “Little Pusher, Love Girl,” and “That Girl.” Check out some fan footage of “Suit & Tie” above, and “Little Pusher, Love Girl” and “That Girl” below.
