Justin Timberlake x Saturday Night Live

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Justin Timberlake stopped by Saturday Night Live this past weekend for a star-studded episode of the show that included everything from a reprise of Timberlake's wildly popular "Dick-In-A-Box" sketch with Andy Samberg to the latest run of SNL veterans Dan Akroyd, Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short. As if that weren't enough Tom Hanks, Alec Baldwin and Paul Simon chipped in to pull up the rear. The vets helped induct J.T. into SNL's Five Timer's Club - an honor reserved for those who have hosted the show five times that comes with it's fair share of pot shots and hard earned foolishness. The latest episode of the NBC institution is absolutely the stuff of legend. J.T. capped his appearance - one of the most exciting in recent history thanks to the talent and the comedic timing of the honorary cast member - with a performance of the lead singles "Mirrors" and "Suit & Tie" from his forthcoming album The 20/20 Experience. "Suit & Tie" found J.T. and Jay-Z back on stage together for a rousing performance of the track featuring Timberlake's backing band and dancers doing their best homage to the big band era and old Hollywood with a small scale reproduction of the set from their recent Grammy performance. Jay-Z hit the stage draped in his legendary Roc-A-Fella chain and a pair of J's to compliment his suit - very fitting attire for someone dressed to kill one of the most famous stages in New York City. J.T. even found time during the performance last night to address lingering complaints from those opposed to the idea of he and Hov hitting the road together. Based upon the reaction they incite in tandem, it seems like they'd be crazy not to. These clips should hold you over until you can get tickets.
