The 2013 Grammy Awards is bringing “SexyBack” with a performance by Justin Timberlake! For the first time in four years, the singer will return to the Grammys stage at the 55th annual awards show.
Timberlake, 31, is back on the music scene and set to release his first studio album in seven years, “The 20/20 Experience,” on March 19. We love him in the movies — “In Time” and “The Social Network” among them, but love seeing his return to microphone. Here’s the first single from his new record, “Suit & Tie” featuring Jay-Z, which was released on Jan. 14. (Note there’s some language issues here).
“What I came up with is something I couldn’t be more excited about!” says Timberlake of the followup to 2005’s “FutureSex/LoveSounds” album. “”It is full of inspiration that I grew up listening to and some newfound muses that I’ve discovered along the way.” Indeed, we see shades of the classic singer/movie stars like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
Timberlake, who’s won six Grammy Awards himself, will take the stage Sunday, Feb. 10 at the Staples Center in L.A. Other performers that night include Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, Elton John and Ed Sheeran, FUN., the Lumineers, Mumford & Sons, The Black Keys, Jack White, Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert.
