If last weekend’s Saturday Night Live didn’t prove Justin Timberlake as one of the most talented human beings of all time, then surely last night’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon did. In a move that’d make Michael Jordan proud, Timberlake overcame illness to perform a truly captivating version of “Pusher Love Girl”.
Coincidentally, Fallon was also under the weather, and the two bonded over drug treatment during an interview prior to Timberlake’s performance. Fallon also asked Timberlake about his current “beef” with Kanye West and the subtle jab he made toward the rapper on SNL. Timberlake kept it professional, though, answering, “For the record, I absolutely love Kanye.”
Replay both the performance and interview below. Then stay tuned for even more, because Timberlake will appear on Late Night all week.
Timberlake’s new album, The 20/20 Experience, arrives March 19th via RCA. Stream it in full right now.
