Justin Timberlake Thrills with Nashville Performance
Sidelines — Justin Timberlake returned to Nashville for an electrifying performance at Bridgestone Arena Friday night.

The show was the second time the Memphis native brought his “20/20 Experience World Tour” to Music City. He played the arena on Nov. 15 of last year during one of the tour’s first stops. This latest performance was a victory lap of sorts, as the tour is slated to come to a close on Jan. 2 in Las Vegas.

After a warm-up set from tour DJ Freestyle Steve that exposed the parents in the arena to songs like Ace Hood’s “Bugatti” and Jay Z’s “F**kWithMeYouKnowIGotIt”, Timberlake arrived on stage to the opening strings of “Pusher Love Girl”, and the night was underway.

Timberlake was backed by his full backing band The Tennessee Kids throughout the night. The group’s live instrumentation and backing vocals helped songs like “LoveStoned” and “Señorita” come alive and connect with the sold out crowd.

Even though Timberlake was rarely on stage alone, he might have well have been. Even during heavily choreographed numbers featuring multiple dancers like “Rock Your Body”, all eyes were on the singer. Timberlake’s stage presence and charisma had the audience in the palm of his hand the entire show.

The climax of the night came as JT and the Tennessee Kids went into a rendition of Garth Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places”. Just after starting, Timberlake stopped the song and said it just didn’t feel right. To the crowd’s excitement, Brooks then emerged to perform the song with Justin, as well as take a few onstage selfies.

That wouldn’t be the only cover of the night, as Kool and the Gang’s “Jungle Boogie”, “Poison” by Bell Biv Devoe and an acoustic version Elvis Presley’s “Heartbreak Hotel” made their way into the setlist. Sadly, neither Kool, The Gang, Bell Biv Devoe or Elvis’s ghost were available to join Timberlake.

The night ended on the three-song high of “Suit & Tie”, “SexyBack” and “Mirrors”. The later of which served as an perfect, celebratory end to an evening with one of Tennesee’s favorite sons.

“We’ve been touring all over the world for almost two years now”, Timberlake told the audience during his performance, “but there ain’t nothing, nothing like the state of Tennessee”.

Justin Timberlake sings with Garth Brooks in Nashville
The Tennessean — Long before the world got to know Justin Timberlake, 33-year-old pop superstar — who played another sold-out concert at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Friday night — there was “Justin Randall”.
That was the name the Tennessee native went by at age 11, when he made his television debut on “Star Search”. Wearing a cowboy hat and bolo tie, he sang Alan Jackson’s “Love’s Got a Hold On You” with all the twang he could muster. A few years later, a teenage Timberlake made it on “The Mickey Mouse Club”, ditched the hat, tie and the twang, and never really looked back.

Not until Friday night, that is. On Friday, Justin Randall made a comeback of sorts — with a little help from Garth Brooks.

Just after intermission at Friday’s show, Timberlake had a mischievous grin as he picked up an acoustic guitar. He played the unmistakable opening chords to Brooks’ “Friends in Low Places”, and the Nashville audience screamed in approval.

“I mean, this is the country music capital of the world, right?” he asked, leading the band into the first verse and chorus of the country staple. But then he cut them off.

“Hold on”, he said, settling into a southern drawl. “Now something don’t feel right…I mean, if you’re going to do this (song)…” He paused.


The room screamed even louder as Brooks came into view, joining Timberlake at center stage to trade lines through the rest of the song. Timberlake hopped up and down with glee as Brooks took the lead on the second verse, and the country star pulled out his iPhone towards the end of the song to capture the experience from his point of view.

After several hugs, Brooks waved goodbye to the crowd, and Timberlake sprawled out on the ground, as if to say, “I can die now”.

The song was one of several ways that Timberlake – who was born in Memphis – tipped his hat to Tennessee during Friday’s concert. After introducing his band, “The Tennessee Kids”, he told his audience, “We’ve been touring all over the world for almost two years now, but there ain’t nothing, nothing like the state of Tennessee”.

As they cheered, he turned back to the “Kids”.

“I told you my people know how to party”, he said.
