“Extra's” AJ Calloway was at Justin's big press conference today, where the star answered questions about Sunday's performance.
AJ kicked off the presser by leading everyone in a giant sing-along to celebrate Justin's belated birthday. The “Filthy” singer turned 37 on January 31.
Timberlake opened up about guest appearances, saying he thought of several acts like *NSYNC and JAY-Z. He told reporters, “I had a ton of grand ideas about special guests… but this year I feel like my band Tennessee Kids is my special guest.”
Is the mega-star nervous about performing in front of 100 million people? Nope! “I'm just excited, excited to be on the stage once again, at this point in my life… I feel grateful everyday to bring people joy… to do that on a grand stage. We want everyone to have a ton of fun.”
Fans can expect lots of J.T. hits like “SexyBack,” “Can't Stop the Feeling” and his latest single, “Filthy.”
