Justin Timberlake Comes Around to SNL

Justin Timberlake Comes Around to SNL

Justin Timberlake was the host and musical guest on SNL (Saturday, December 16, 2006). Justin performed My Love and his third single What Goes Around…Comes Around off of his latest album, FutureSex/LoveSounds.

In other news: Justin Timberlake’s first single SexyBack made it all the way to the #9 spot in Billboard’s Top 100 Singles of 2006. Cool, I like that song.

[Thanks "JON" for the 2nd SNL performance video below!]

yeah – I’m first for once.

Anyway – I just heard Justin’s new song “What goes around” this weekend and does anyone else think that he’s talking to Britney in the song?

I love that song, beautiful!!, I love him too, sooo cute… well, that’s it. bye people… and… SECOND!.

# 3

Justin Timberlake is talented, nice dancer and has pretty good songs, but is totally OVERRATED! And what he did to one of the ICONS in music history will never be forgiven.

# 4

I agree with post #1, the song seems like it is to Britney!

# 5

Yeah definatley about Britney. My friend has that cd and she blares that one all the time. The FULL album track is actually nastier because it goes on at the end.

Oh my god. The Justin episode of SNL was hilarious! I really, really hope to see the digital short with Justin and Andy Samberg again (c*ck in a box) or the Barry Gibb show, with Justin and a guest appearance by Jimmy Fallon. I’ve been saying, SNL has some great new cast members and is definitely on the upswing! It’s been very good lately.

THAT WAS 1 OF THE MOST FUNNY SNL’S I SEEN IN A LONG TIME. I LIKE HOW JUSTIN WAS IN ALMOST EVERY SKIT.

GREAT PERFORMANCES ALSO.

I agree. I like Justin’s music and all, but it’s because he’s got some badass producers on his track (Timbaland, the Neptunes, etc.); other than that, his voice is weak. He’s a nice dancer, but I’ve seen MUCH better, and that’s minus Michael Jackson. His jab at Prince and Janet was pretty distasteful, and I’m disappointed at Timbo for even letting him say that.

Other than that, his SNL appearance was nice, and “What Goes Around…Comes Around” is “Cry Me a River Part II”–an instant hit.

People are always hating on the people who can break out from who they were and become a star in their own right. Justin’s just doing what he knows and is allowed to have opinions on other artists. I’m impressed he’s been able get away from being a boybander and has become someone who’s gonna be around for a long time.

BTW, does anyone know where the “**** in a Box” sketch could be viewed online? THat was some funny ****.

youtube put in justin snl, and it will come up.

Thanks! Justin has excellent comedic timing, I gotta give it to him.
Am I the only person who actually liked him better back in the N’Sync days? Nowadays with his “ghetto” image, it seems so forced. Not many black people I know like JT all that much, especially after the Superbowl incident. I know BET disliked him for a while after that. And I hate MTV for refusing to play any Janet videos. She and her brother Mike *created* MTV, and nowadays they’d rather shoot themselves than spin a Jackson video. That’s disgusting. “Thriller” and “Smooth Criminal” by MJ and “Rhythm Nation” by Janet were effing classics.

I had no idea that the SNL show was current. I thought it was a repeat. I was just up late and stumbled upon it and watched the whole thing. Yeah, the Bees Gees skit was hilarious! He’d done it before with Jimmy Fallon when Timberlake’s first CD came out. Those two are great together.

Timberlake is talented, but he’s struck with the Leonardo DiCaprio curse, in that he has a boyish face. I think he could probably become a good actor if he studied it. He’s pretty good at a lot of things really. I still can’t believe he is with Cameron Diaz. They just don’t match. She’s his experienced older woman.

also, I want Justin to sing a really great song, something that is not dance or pop. Someone needs to produce a song for him that could be nominated in the category of best song at the Grammys.

amy to answer your question, i’m black and i love him and all my friends who are black love him too. hell my white friends, we all love him.

some of us loved him in nsync and love him now, but i honestly don’t know anyone who liked him more before.

the superbowl thing was interesting. i never got what was expected of him. more importantly, im not sure him saying anything would have changed how janet was attacked, but that is a whole other conversation.

i agree with you on his comedic timing. i’m still surprised at how good he is.

“My d*#k in a box”

An instant classic, you will not be sorry:

It’s official: Justin Timberlake is THE star of nsync. JC gave it a good try, but he doesn’t quite have it, though he’s a cutie pie who has a decent voice. The rest of the group have faded into oblivion. Justin’s got the swagger, the rhythm and the talent. I see A LOT of R&B influence in him. He stated that he grew up listening to a lot of black singers. That’s why he’s so good. He’s real. He truly loves to dance and loves the type of music he performs.

What Goes Around…Comes Around was a great performance. My favorite skit was the Target check lanes. Only because I work at Target on the weekends. (I neither work at the registers or in the backroom–you’ll find me in the fitting room or guest service.)

This song is not about Britney, it’s definitely for his best friend Trace and his beakup with Elisha “big ****” Cuthbert … they were engaged

I’m bummed! Although I don’t watch SNL as much as I used to as a kid, I would have loved to have seen this episode. I’m a big fan of Justin and I really enjoyed his new album. Correct me if I’m wrong but is this not the second time he’s hosted SNL? Probably missed that one too grrr! Justin seems to be a funny guy with a good sense of humor. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was the best show SNL’s had in a while. Justin Timberlake is amazing. He’s Been Nominated for A People’s Choice Award for Favorite R&B Song for “Sexyback”. I was lucky enough to vote the day nominees were announced because I work with The People’s Choice Community. You can see Videos and Snapshots of Justin and some of the other nominees at http://www.pcavote.com and tune in Jan 9th at 9pm on CBS to see who wins!

I’m black and i LOVE Justin and all my friends wether they are black white, blue, yellow, orange ,green etc…. LOOOOVE him too.LOL!

I hate to break this to you, but that’s a lie. I can’t believe there are people that still fall for the old ‘my friend’ excuse, seriously! Why are some people having such a hard time admitting the obvious? I know some of you hate the idea of Justin still writing songs about Britney because you hate her so much, but when you listen to the song, it’s blatantly obvious.

Lyrics to Justin Timberlake What Goes Around

Hey girl, is he everything you wanted in a man
You know I gave you the world
You had me in the palm of your hand

So why your love went away
I just can’t seem to understand
Thought it was me and you babe
Me and you until the end
But I guess I was wrong

Don’t want to think about it
Don’t want to talk about it
I’m just so sick about it
Can’t believe it’s ending this way

Just so confused about it
Feeling the blues about it
I just can’t do without ya
Tell me is this fair?

Is this the way it’s really going down?
Is this how we say goodbye?
Should’ve known better when you came around
That you were gonna make me cry
It’s breaking my heart to watch you run around
‘Cause I know that you’re living a lie
That’s okay baby ’cause in time you will find…

What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around

Now girl, I remember everything that you claimed
You said that you were moving on now
And maybe I should do the same
Funny thing about that is
I was ready to give you my name
Thought it was me and you, babe
And now, it’s all just a shame
And I guess I was wrong

Don’t want to think about it
Don’t want to talk about it
I’m just so sick about it
Can’t believe it’s ending this way
Just so confused about it
Feeling the blues about it
I just can’t do without ya
Can you tell me is this fair?

Is this the way things are going down?
Is this how we say goodbye?
Should’ve known better when you came around (should’ve known better that you were gonna make me cry)
That you were going to make me cry
Now it’s breaking my heart to watch you run around
‘Cause I know that you’re living a lie
That’s okay baby ’cause in time you will find

What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around

What goes around comes around
Yeah
What goes around comes around
You should know that
What goes around comes around
Yeah
What goes around comes around
You should know that

Don’t want to think about it (no)
Don’t want to talk about it
I’m just so sick about it
Can’t believe it’s ending this way
Just so confused about it
Feeling the blues about it (yeah)
I just can’t do without ya
Tell me is this fair?

Is this the way things are going down?
Is this how we say goodbye?
Should’ve known better when you came around (should’ve known better that you were gonna make me cry)
That you were going to make me cry
Now it’s breaking my heart to watch you run around
‘Cause I know that you’re living a lie
But that’s okay baby ’cause in time you will find

What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around
What goes around, goes around, goes around
Comes all the way back around

[Comes Around interlude:]

Let me paint this picture for you, baby

You spend your nights alone
And he never comes home
And every time you call him
All you get’s a busy tone
I heard you found out
That he’s doing to you
What you did to me
Ain’t that the way it goes

You cheated girl
My heart bleeds girl
So it goes without saying that you left me feeling hurt
Just a classic case
A scenario
Tale as old as time
Girl you got what you deserved

And now you want somebody
To cure the lonely nights
You wish you had somebody
That could come and make it right

But girl I ain’t somebody with a lot of sympathy
You’ll see

(What goes around comes back around)
I thought I told ya, hey
(What goes around comes back around)
I thought I told ya, hey
(What goes around comes back around)
I thought I told ya, hey
(What goes around comes back around)
I thought I told ya, hey

See?
You should’ve listened to me, baby
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Because
(What goes around comes back around)

So what part doesn’t sound like it’s about Britney? Exactly! Of course the song is about her, ALL OF IT! Besides he sort of admitted the song is about Britney, first he said he could relate to what the song is about, then in an MTV show called Trackstory, he said, AND I QUOTE, “It reminds me of Cry Me a River only better! That’s saying a lot, isn’t it?” Those were his EXACT words, now anyone who refuses to see the VERY OBVIOUS is a fool. Of course he won’t fully admit the song is about Britney, he has a freaking girlfriend, that would make him look really bad!

Sounds like Britney, but who cares now? They used to be a great-looking couple, but now there are too many skeletons. Justin needs to start fresh. After he has gotten all is freak on with Diaz, I hope he finds a really beautiful, sweet, family-oriented girl to settle down with and have little Timberlakes. But that is a good while into the future. Right now he needs total concentration on his career.

Am I psychic? I wrote what I wrote above, not knowing then that Justin is planning to sing at the Grammy Awards. He’s supposed to be holding some type of audition to get a singing partner. Amazing. Great idea. He’s going to select one of 9 songs that have previously won a Grammy Award.

I think Justin should sing “Dance With My Father” by Luther Vandross.
