If Justin Timberlake is anything, he is a craftsman. He has acted in feature films and, as we all know, comes from ‘NSync fame.
Mr. Timberlake has stuck around without really making a fool of himself. Instead, he has established himself a media empire. He even founded his own tequileria.
In case you, in the court of public opinion, have not been convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that Justin is still killing it onstage, I give you Exhibit A.
Yes. I know that this is not the studio version that was slaying listeners all summer, but this version is so much better in many ways. First, he was the host of the episode of Saturday Night Live. It was the fifth time that he had hosted the show, and the third time he’d hosted while also being the featured musical guest. This video just exemplifies his true skill as a performer.
“Cry Me A River”
Not only is the video brilliantly directed, but the song evokes a feeling that many breakup songs don’t try to emote (especially from guys). He’s clearly upset with this girl not because she left, but because of the circumstances of her leaving. Do I need to say more?
