Last night, Justin Timberlake was in Paris, at the Stade de France, to perform his newest songs off his 2 latest albums The 20/20 Experience and The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2, as well as his most famous songs from his previous albums.
After a DJ who made us wait for almost 2 hours, Justin arrived onto the stage, dressed to the nines (he was wearing a black suit, with a white shirt and a black bow tie), and kicked off the show with Pusher Love Girl (from The 20/20 Experience) and continued with Rock Your Body (from Justified, his debut album).
After speaking a few words of French (which the audience loved), he then sang FutureSex/LoveSound (from his 2nd album FutureSex/LoveSounds), Like I Love You and My Love. He carried on with TKO (from The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2), Summer Love and LoveStoned (both songs are from his 2nd album).
10 minutes later, we saw Justin sitting on his white piano; he performed Until the End of Time and dedicated this song to the couples which were in the audience and afterwards, he sang his part of the Holy Grail song. He kept the show going with Cry Me a River (from Justified), Only When I Walk Away, and after that song he thanked us for being there tonight and drank a shot of tequila on our behalf.
He continued with Drink Me Away and Tunnel Vision. At this moment, we noticed that the stage (which was divided into 2 parts, the orchestra was on the main one, while he and his backup singers were on the other) he was on was moving, so he could be with the crowd (minutes later, he was walking through the crowd and asking if we were having a good time).
The next songs he sang were Señorita and Let the Groove Get In (from The 20/20 Experience). As you may know, Justin hails from Memphis, TN, so he paid homage to Elvis Presley and covered Heartbreak Hotel. Afterward, he played his latest single Not a Bad Thing, and he then paid homage to Michael Jackson, and covered Human Nature. All songs were performed on his guitar.
The show went on and he performed What Goes Around…Comes Around (from FutureSex/LoveSounds), Take Back the Night, Murder, Suit & Tie and the last song of the show, Mirrors. He thanked us once more time, asked us to make some noise for his band JT and The Tennessee Kids and left the stage.
Justin Timberlake is definitely a real entertainer. He can dance and sing at the same time. His moves are very impressive and he always manages to make the audience his. Moreover, he always works hard to offer his fans high quality concerts (his 2007’s Futuresex/Loveshow concert lasted 2h30 while this one lasted 2h20). So if you’re given the opportunity to go to one of his shows, you’re guaranteed to spend an excellent time.
