Justin Timberlake Tributes Janet Jackson’s ‘If’ Choreography On Tour [Video]

Published: Tuesday 8th Jan 2019 by Sam

As history goes, Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake‘s narratives are intertwined – albeit controversially.

And while the pair largely avoid discussion about the other following the now infamous “wardrobe malfunction” at the 2004 Super Bowl, JT wasn’t shy to salute one of Ms. Jackson’s most celebrated dance-moves last night.

See what we mean below…

With his ‘Man Of The Woods Tour’ resumed, the trek’s latest show saw Timberlake break into Janet’s ‘If’ choreography.

Check it out:


While the connection and choreo reference was clear, it turns out the NSYNC’er was saluting the creator of the moves – Janet’s former choreographer Tina Landon who was in the audience and celebrating her birthday.


Color us extra, but we feel Justin must do right by Janet publicly and explicitly before we can look at instances like this with anything but a “boy bye” side-eye.

Your thoughts?

    • The Truth January 8, 2019

      Thank you!

      Why is he even attempting??????? He WILL fail.

      • BIGGESTAALIYAHFAN January 8, 2019

        He can miss me wit the B*******!!

    • Flo January 8, 2019

      Why are you trying to make something positive into negativity? You realize Justin is a fan of Janet correct? Janet was the one who introduced his choreographer Marty to him and has worked with Tina Landon.

      • Face January 8, 2019

        You can’t be a fan of someone you left high and dry and vaguely apologized to. FOH.

      • Karter January 8, 2019

        Justin is a fan of Janet?? ?? no, JT used Janet, he’s no fan.

    • Troy January 8, 2019

      Exactly….he’s been mocking her since he ripped off her breast plate….he’s a f***** loser.

  2. DeanD January 8, 2019

    I believe Tina choreographed everything in “If” except the iconic breakdown, that honor goes to Janet’s dance partner in the video Omar.

    Oh ok , it’s always been apart of his plans surely!!??‍♂️

  4. oh NO Justin WHAT IS YOU DOIN BB January 8, 2019

    used to stan so hard for Justin but I’ve been on a rapid decline since he decided to shade Janet by not inviting him back to the Superbowl with him. Shade, cuz his bish ass OWES HER FOR WHEN HE THREW HER UNDER THE BUS IN AN EPIC D0UCH3BAG FASHION! FK Justin. FK him even harder for pulling this fkn stunt. This culture vulture has been capitalizing on our culture for too damn long. I’m glad I helped by deleting all of his music from my apple music, spotify & tidal accounts. BYE BYE BYE bish

    • ERIC January 9, 2019

      I’m not a fan of Justin, but Janet did confirm “there was a conversation” about her participating with Justin. She declined.

  5. CHINA January 8, 2019

    He tried that. STILL A SIDEEYE NO FROM ME. A slight BOTOX moment on the forehead would be appreciated.

    • Lmfao_Hoe January 9, 2019

      Lmfao ?? I miss Prince

  6. Blaque January 8, 2019

    That was a side eye look at this fools eating it up

  7. Karter January 8, 2019

    Exactly, boy bye!! Either give a proper apology and acknowledgement of your mishap (and come up) in the situation or let it tf alone. Interesting how Janet has been on a comeback lately and getting so much positive press, meanwhile JT is canceling and rescheduling, having vocal issues, flopping up and down the charts etc…karma is inevitable.

  8. The Culture Vulture January 8, 2019

    Justin dances so white.

  9. Himbella Vandershe January 8, 2019

    Boy is trying so hard to stay relevant. I shame Black people who still buy his music and shows.

  10. JanFLOP January 8, 2019

    A daily reminder Janet and her dead brother is who rotting in hell are child abusers.

    • Taree johnson January 8, 2019

      Go f*** yourself with a spiked bat

      • JanFLOP January 8, 2019

        Wow you support child molestors and abusers? Don’t have children, period. There’s a reason special place for people like two of those Jackson’s and people who support their every cruel ways.

  11. RoyalKev January 8, 2019

    Hmmm, he can keep that!

  12. ERIC January 9, 2019

    Marty gave Janet some of her best choreo with “All for You”. Then he started working heavily with Justin and Janet never used him again. I don’t blame her. I’m disappointed to see Tina at the show supporting Justin. I’m sure it was all planned to try to boost his image. He never misses an opportunity to get what he can from Michael and Janet’s legacies.

    • Flo January 9, 2019

      Janet is the one who introduced Marty to Justin in the first place.

  13. Kingnoah3000 January 9, 2019

    Omar did the break in IF so ??‍♂️??

  14. stan January 9, 2019

    no thanks

  15. Bravo!!! January 9, 2019

  16. James January 9, 2019

  17. ~The Arcade~ January 9, 2019

    You can tell that was genuine at all … he thinks he’s slick.

    • ~The Arcade~ January 9, 2019

  18. Boytoy1814 February 3, 2019

    JT get off Janet’s titty! She only has breast milk for her son. Thirsty ass

  19. Boytoy1814 February 3, 2019
