Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy back to the Grammys, and we don't know how to act!
It was announced today that for the first time in four years, Timberlake is going to be performing on the Grammys stage -- and hopefully debuting a bit more music off of his new album The 20/20 Experience. After watching the sultry lyric video for his new single, "Suit & Tie," we remembered exactly why we went crazy for JT back in the day. But since it wasn't a full-blown music video, it didn't little to satisfy our appetite for his catchy sound and sexy dance moves. So, of course, we'll be glued to our TV screens when he takes the stage on Feb. 10. And our fingers are crossed that wife Jessica Biel is in the audience -- because we're dying to see if she finds his singing as swoon-worthy as we do!
With all this exciting news about the birthday boy (who turns 32 tomorrow!), we almost forgot that there are some other amazing acts set to perform at the this year's Grammy Awards. Almost.
In fact, the exciting performance lineup is enough to make the Grammys worth watching this year -- even if the nominees happen to be less high-wattage than usual. All they need is a surprise appearance by the Rolling Stones (especially since they won't be appearing at Coachella as rumored) and no one will be able to resist tuning in.
Other acts taking the stage include Rihanna, Taylor Swift, The Black Keys, Jack White, FUN., Mumford & Sons, Elton John and Ed Sheeran, The Lumineers, Jack White, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley.
Of all of them, we're probably most excited to see what Rihanna does. She's already come clean about her love for Chris Brown and our guess is that they likely will walk the red carpet together -- but what better way to show a unified front than by performing together, as well? Their single "Nobodies Business" seems like as good a song as any to perform on stage.
After RiRi, we'd have to say we're thrilled to see what Swift will perform -- if only because we assume she's spent the past month penning an epic breakup song for Harry Styles. Too much to ask for her to sing it here? Hey, she did it for Kanye West at the VMAs! Also, we sort of loved her Paris-themed performance at the Country Music Awards, and would like to see what epic set she comes up with this time.
Finally, and consider us saps, but we're really looking forward to hearing Mumford & Sons. The band's folksy sound will be a nice contrast to all that pop music, and plus we still get chills when we hear "Roll Away Your Stone."
