See Justin Timberlake Pop That ‘Strawberry Bubblegum’ on ‘Fallon’
Night four of Justin Timberweek features the return of curly-haired JT
“Justin Timberweek” continued to let the groove get in on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night (March 14), as Justin Timberlake performed “Strawberry Bubblegum,” the latest live-previewed cut from the “Suit & Tie” smooth-talker’s upcoming The 20/20 Experience (out March 19 but free to stream here). JT’s trademark falsetto glided over the future-funk track’s staccato squelch, but the former ‘NSync star’s dance moves didn’t do him any favors, particularly during another overlong coda that freed him up for some not-too-fancy footwork.
Also par for the course, Timberlake again flossed his comedy chops, joining Fallon for a quick skit where the two play kids at a summer camp who can’t stop singing Toto’s “Africa.” It’s not JT’s strongest sketch work, but the curly-haired wig he sports serves as a reminder of how far he’s come over the years.
