Justin Timberlake: Mirrors

Last Saturday Justin Timberlake hosted SNL for the fifth time and was the musical guest as well.  The same week he performed five songs from his excellent new album 'The 20/20 Experience' on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (as a bonus the two of them did a hilarious and impressive "History of Rap" medley.)  On both occasions the 32-year-old singer-songwriter-producer-actor-entrepreneur was backed by his stellar band & backing vocalists aka The Tennessee Kids, named after his homestate.

His next album, a "sequel" to 'The 20/20 Experience', is scheduled for a late November release.

In July and August Timberlake teams up with Jay-Z for the North American 'Legends of Summer' tour which includes two shows at Yankee Stadium in NYC.



The 8:21 min. video accompanying the track "Mirrors" was directed by renowned Italian-Canadian multimedia artist Floria Sigismondi. The David Lynch-meets-Ingmar Bergman clip is a moving tribute to Timberlake's maternal grandparents William and Sadie Bomar who were married for 63 years before William's passing in late 2012.
