To everyone who listened in on the livestream of Justin Timberlake's new album The 20/20 Experience, can we all agree that the general consensus is "Mmmmmm... it's ohhhh-kay, I guess. Didn't blow me away."? And of course, that's the problem with his newest album—there isn't any real risk-taking going on, which was certainly NOT the case when he recorded FutureSex/LoveSounds and its breakout first single "SexyBack." (I believe I remember saying when I first heard it, "Whaaaaat the faaaaaaawk??")
Even Justin's barbershop quartet-style version of "SexyBack" is more charming and exciting than anything I heard on 20/20... and IT'S A JOKE. Check out this very cute, funny version featuring Jimmy Fallon, JT, and "The Ragtime Gals." (Waitasecond... that's gross.)
