Justin Timberlake (L) with Jay-Z
Justin Timberlake put an exclamation point on his comeback with a sizzling, hour-long concert on the eve of the Super Bowl.
Justin, who recently released his new single Suit and Tie, had not performed in concert in nearly five years after deciding to concentrate on his acting career, reports The Press Association.
But at Saturday's event, hosted by DirecTV, a dapper-looking Justin brought out a full band, along with special guests Jay-Z and Timbaland, to wow a crowd of hundreds in New Orleans.
Justin is due to perform for a much larger audience next Sunday at the Grammy Awards. His third album The 20/20 Experience is due out in March.
