Aw, of COURSE we’ll watch you on “SNL” this weekend, Justin Timberlake!
It’s super cute (and super humble) that Justin Timberlake thinks he still needs to do things like hold up a totally charming handwritten sign with info about his upcoming “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig to get us to watch. C’mon, you know we wouldn’t miss it for the world! And if Justin’s “Suit & Tie” performance at the 2013 Grammys was any indication, his “SNL” gig is bound to be seriously memorable. Oh, and “D— in a Box”! We could stop right there (the thought of a “D— in a Box” reprise alone is enough to send us into a tizzy), but we won’t! Because let’s be real for a sec: our DVRs have been preemptively set to record anything with the keyword “Timberlake” (or even *NSync for that matter) since we saw him shirtless in “What Goes Around” in 2006. That’s a no-brainer right there.
The “Suit & Tie” crooner will assume double duty as the host and musical guest on “SNL”’s March 9 episode. No word yet on what he’ll perform, but we’re praying that he’ll play his new jam “Mirrors,” because hearing Justin Timberlake sing about the “vacancy” in his heart is one thing, but watching him sing it live is QUITE ANOTHER. Also, shall we take a moment of silence to appreciate Justin’s exceptionally magical hair? We’re not thrilled that we can’t see all of Justin’s face, but heck if JT doesn’t have the lock game on LAWK! The side part, alone!
