The Internet Is Going Crazy Over Justin Timberlake’s Cover Of This ’90s Megahit
Is there anything Justin can't do?
Justin Timberlake can do it all. He can sing, dance, act and play a number of musical instruments. And if you don’t believe me, well just watch JT perform this cover song back in 2013.
Accompanied by two other awesome singer and dancers, the 35-year-old star rocked out an amazing cover of Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison.” This will certainly bring you back to the good old days of the ’90s.
Checkout the video below:
Now, of course, Justin’s version is good but there’s nothing like the original.
Haven’t had a listen in awhile? Well, it’s time. Here’s BBD’s music video for their 1990 hit song below.
JT has performed some other fantastic covers, including “Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground),” The Jackson’s late-1970s hit. Here’s Justin performing it in 2013:
He also had the chance to cover Otis Redding’s famous “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of The Bay” at the White House that same year. Justin notes at the start of the performance that it was tough luck for him to be following Mavis Staples, the vocal powerhouse known for hits such as “I’ll Take You There.”
In a departure from his standard offerings, JT covered INXS’ “Need You Tonight” at a 2013 Super Bowl Party. Looks like 2013 was a year of big covers for him!
And speaking of musical departures, JT covered “Friends in Low Places” by Garth Brooks at a concert in 2014 in Oklahoma City. The audience accompanies him, and they are clearly loving his song choice.
Have a listen and sing along! He also covered Ray Lamontagne’s “Jolene” during a 2014 concert.
JT does a pretty good job with the song. Here’s Lamontagne doing a live performance of it a few years earlier.
JT fans were excited to find out the big news that their music idol will be performing at one of the biggest events in 2018.
He and his “bromance” partner Jimmy Fallon made the big announcement about the NFL’s big game halftime show. Timberlake will be take the stage for the popular live show on Feb. 4, 2018 at US Bank Stadium in Minnesota.
Of course, this will be his second time playing the halftime show. Back in 2004, Timberlake famously performed with Janet Jackson. You may remember seeing or hearing about the major wardrobe malfunction during the show. People still talk about it more than 10 years after it happened!
Here’s a video clip of the infamous performance:
No word, yet, on if the duo plan to reunite for a repeat performance.
