Justin Timberlake To Open Grammy Awards With New Songs

Published: Saturday 9th Feb 2013 by Sam

Music’s biggest calendar night is but a day away, and while much about the 55th Annual Grammy Awards has been coated in secrecy, details about its opener have been confirmed.

Full story below…

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the show’s executive producer Ken Ehrlich revealed that Justin Timberlake will be kicking off tomorrow’s festivities with new single ‘Suit & Tie‘. The Pop force will also perform a previously unheard track from his eagerly awaited third album ‘The 20/20 Experience’.

Of the said project, Ehrlich said:

It’s great seeing Justin back. The last time he was on, he literally saved the show. We had a gaping hole in the show [after the Chris Brown and Rihanna incident] and he jumped in at the top of the show with Al Green. It was fantastic of him to do it. And then, I hope we didn’t cause it, but he left music for a while and became a movie star of sorts. It was really exciting when we got the call that he was back and doing music. I don’t know how many people even knew until a few months ago that he was back and making music. He was incredibly quiet about the fact that he was working on an album. And to me it’s not just an album, it’s a great album. He 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.


While ‘Suit & Tie’ continues to not give us what we need, we’d by lying if we said we aren’t eager to both see and hear what JT will be serving up come tomorrow. For, given his wealth of talent and solid body of work, Timberlake brings a certain level of excitement to any show he’s performing on.

Peep his live rendition of ‘What Goes Around’ at the 2007 show below…

    Maybe I missed it, but where in that did they say he was opening the show? Taylor Swift is opening the Grammys if I’m not mistaken!

  2. ENOUGH ONIKA (0 GRAMMY NOMS…) February 9, 2013

    PLEASE don’t perform “Suit & Tie.” I am beyond disappointed with what I’ve heard so far….

    • Absolved February 9, 2013

      Why wouldn’t he perform S&T. That’s the song he’s got out right now. It wouldn’t make sense for him to not.



      Even if he premieres something else tomorrow, at some point S&T is gonna be mixed in.

  3. honestly February 9, 2013

    I wonder how his relationship is going. He seems like one of those party boys that never really grow up. And with that I can’t wait to own the album March 19.

  4. Suicide Blonde February 9, 2013

    Sam and his picture of my Husband, Omg i almost fainted!!!!!!!!…anyway he is one of the few reasons for what i’m going to watch that show.

    when is she going to come out the closet? that’s why Britney Spears cheated on her. he is a pretty boy bottom. His d*** was probably going limp. So she had to get d*** that would stay hard. So she cheated!

    Say what you want he fine as hell and im sure he taken d***.

    I wana give him some of mine.

    I saw him say ” I got a moon man, I got a moon man”. Then after he did that neck roll, I said oh yea he a bttm.

    He did dat SNL single ladies dance just a lil too good, and he was too hppy doing it. this is not a coincidence, he is GAY. The guy that came out said the samething bout him.

    But if all men came out, women would be so unhappy. True story tho.

    • Suicide Blonde February 9, 2013

      You won’t give him anything, that ass is mine.

  6. King B>Rihanna February 9, 2013

    Besides JT performance and Beyonce presenting Am I the only one not hyped for the Grammmys 2morrow?

    • BITCHPLEASE February 9, 2013

      NO!!!!!!!!!! 🙁

  7. GAslickmouf February 9, 2013

    when is she going to come out the closet? that’s why Britney Spears cheated on her. Britney Spears had to find some d*** that would be hard. this is not a coincidence

    I saw him say on MTV ” I got a moon man I got a moon man”. Then after he did the neck roll, I said oh yeah he is gay and a bttm!

    SNL he did that single ladies dance just a little too good, the other guy from the group said that he thought he was gay.

    He wants d*** and I will give it to him anytime!

    He is a fine ass little white boy that can dance on this wood anyday.

    he will never come out, his career is on the line.

    • David February 9, 2013

      Gay ass fem, shut the hell up, f**

  8. SHA February 9, 2013

    I will buy the album and then judge it because Suit and Tie is trash and WTF is going on with Beyonce where the f*** is the single?????? Grammys Superbowl most likely TV interviews to promote the documentary then HBO will show the documentary in a week or so the new tour all this promotion for what to promote a two year album I don’t get it!!!!!

    • beyonce n rita whora flop together. February 9, 2013

      There was gonna be a single. Pepsi confirmed this and so did the dream. But, we all know she took 2 singles to be tested at 40 American pop stations.

      The superbowl has passed. The Grammy’s will pass. The Brits will pass and NO SINGLE OR EVEN DATE FROM HER LABEL ( PEPSI ) She has not toured in 4 years, so it makes sense that some dates are selling out for he tour. Rih last tour was only 2011 .

      Why no single? Because they are pushing it back, The tour is a diversion: she needed to do something slick to conceal, the fact that she is pushing her album back. A tour is a great way. Look how quick the tour has just pooped up. This is plan B, I expect the real Plan B was Destiny Child , but michelle seems more engrossed in the Fela, so her heart was not in it.

      There is not gonna be a beyonce single, this year.

      • beyonce n rita whora flop together. February 9, 2013

        Forgot to add that her vogue cover has come and gone now. Still no single.

        That rihanna reign just wont let up.

  9. beyonce n rita whora flop together. February 9, 2013

    I am huge JT fan, I really am! But, JB has blown him out water ( evne tyhough JB albums have never sold over 7 mill like JT.) JB, at 18 is better looking; more stylist and more well rounded and talented than JT, It will be very interesting to see JT and JB go head to head in the charts.

    Either both of these white boys s*** all over the current crop of black singers. Miguel is funky, contrived and weird. Frank Ocean is gay. Luke james has bland music and bland look. Chris brown is a monster. Neyo is not cute. Usher is old. Trey songs is just wack. B smtith will never happen. Eliaj blake is a songwriter and nothing more.

    There is no male beyonce or rihanna . A total package black singer is lacking. Jodeci , Rkelly and Usher ( younger ) were teh only total package RNB singers. Even Ginuwine had back in teh day.

    • SHA February 9, 2013

      If you think Justin Beiber is more talented than Justin Timberlake then you need to see a doctor ASAP!!!!!!!! By the way is this kelly aka wrinkle flop ora????

  10. My Forehead Tho February 9, 2013

    He should perform “Pusher love girl”..

    I saw him debut that song at the superbowl pre-game show, and it is beyond amazing

    Hopefully it’s his next single…

  11. beyonce n rita whora flop together. February 9, 2013

    Another dark skin girl bites the dust!

    Iggy Azalia is not signed, yet she has already been on mTV American tour with Rita Whora, performed at VHI diva’s, been signed to a Top PR firm and now….she will be supporting NAS and meek mill on their European and Australian tour. There is even rumors she has been in the studio with Rihanna.

    LOL LOL Where is Azalia Banks? Aside from sitting angrily on twitter, what is she doing and where is she going?>

  12. Gary C February 9, 2013

    catch that JT shade from the grammy exec producer: “and became a movie star of sorts.” oop!

  13. Monstarebel February 9, 2013

    Good we dont want suit n tie

  14. Anne February 9, 2013

    I like ‘Suit & Tie’ so I’m glad he is performing it. I don’t like the way they slow the beat down for the JayZ feature though, other than that I think it’s a nice R&B tune. I’m glad he didn’t come back with that dance/pop stuff just to get a quick hit back on the charts. Instead he came back with a smooth R&B, old school, feel good song.

  15. BeyFRAUD Armstrong (Beyonce’s Weave) February 9, 2013

    Wow, Justin Timberlake has got such beautiful eyes that whenever I see them I just squirt. I love a guy with beautiful milky skin and wonderful colored eyes.

    • Absolved February 9, 2013

      Shut the f*** up. So damn annoying. Just shut up.

  16. RICHANDBLACK11 February 9, 2013

    I want him and Beyonce to do end of time ….or jt cry me a river lol

    • Anne February 9, 2013

      I’ve been hoping for the same thing lately (for Bey and J.T. to perform live their duet version of ‘Until the End of Time’ together). Don’t think it will ever happen though, too bad. Can’t get enough of the studio version!

  17. Bitcher Than You February 9, 2013

    Oh lawd, this again. I hope he can pull his best Robin Thicke or else…

  18. BeyFRAUD Armstrong (Beyonce’s Weave) February 9, 2013

    Beyonce copied Tina Turner for her Superbowl outfit our FRAUD squad has learned. Yas, the Tina Turner tribute act took her Tina Turner obsession to a new level when she decided to copy Tina Turner’s outfit for her Superbowl performance. There’s no originality from Beyonce at all.


    • angela February 10, 2013

      They don’t even look that much alike, lol. I’m so over this.

  19. Tre February 9, 2013

    So Janet continues to catch shade from both the Grammys and CBS due to the Super Bowl and Justin get’s to open the show….SMH

  20. Music Soul Harmony February 10, 2013

    Beyonce and Rita whora: call us back when JB has half the longevity of JT. Justin may have been a heartthrob in his teens, But he’s proven himself to have won over many women as well and have had a successful career as a fully grown man. When will JB hit puberty? Also, his music sucks ass! His singing is not that great either! Bye!

    • beyonce n rita whora flop together. February 10, 2013

      JB is richer and more famous at 18 than JT ever was. JT had most of his shine from Brit, hence why he still tries to be slick.

      • angela February 10, 2013

        I don’t know about richer or more famous, but Timberlake did indeed gain his fame as an individual outside of his NSYNC bandmates as being the boyfriend of Britney Spears. Then he used their breakup to catapult him into solo stardom. So Bieber gets a point for making it without riding someone else’s coattails.

  21. JOHNVIDAL February 10, 2013

    Thankfully he is not doing just Suit and Tie. That song… sorry it´s not good for a comeback after 7 years and for an artist that has so much to prove still
    Hope some other better things

  22. lexi February 10, 2013

    since both beyonce and justin albums are coming out in april, which one will sell more. i am thinking justin because this is a real music comeback for him. beyonce didn’t go anywhere. 4 went platinum and she did shows, so this is not a comeback.
