Get ready, America: Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon just might be the next great hip-hop duo! The multi-talented pair took a break from the usual routine to bust a few rhymes on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night.
Timberlake stopped by the show to promote his upcoming movie The Social Network (which has already garnered Oscar buzz for the star). But it seems Fallon had some other ideas for the visit.
After chatting about his *NSYNC days, the guys, who have crooned together in the past (remember the hysterical "Barry Gibb Talk Show" skit from Saturday Night Live?) launched into a rousing hip-hop medley.
Led by the Late Night house band The Roots, Timberlake and Fallon thrilled the audience with their renditions of rap classics by the Sugar Hill Gang, The Beastie Boys, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Eminem and more. Watch the clip below to see the whole enormously entertaining performance:
Seriously, is there anything Timberlake can't do? The singer-turned-actor looked completely in his element during the number. Of course, Fallon was impressive, too. Though it's hard to say if it surpassed his star-studded Bruce Springsteen-themed Emmy opener this year.
