The DIRECTV Super Saturday Night charity concert, in New Orleans, was the first live performance from Timberlake since 2007.
The ‘SexyBack’ hitmaker was also joined by surprise guest Jay-Z half way through the first live perfomance of his new single.
As well as the inaugural live performance of ‘Suit & Tie’, fans were treated to the first peak at new tracks ‘Little Pusher Love Girl’ and ‘Bad Girl’, which are expected to appear on the forthcoming new album The 20/20 Experience.
JT has announced several high profile live appearances over the last few weeks. The pop-king will perform at the Grammy Awards, and then go on to play the first of his proper live shows the same night.
Last week he was also confirmed to perform at the BRIT Awards on February 20, giving his British fans something to look forward to.
