NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Justin Timberlake put an exclamation point on his comeback with a sizzling, hour-long concert on the eve of the Super Bowl.
Timberlake - who recently released his new single "Suit and Tie" - hadn't performed in concert in nearly five years, deciding to concentrate on his acting career. But at Saturday's event - put on by DirecTV - a dapper-looking Timberlake brought out a full band, along with special guests Jay-Z and Timbaland, to wow a crowd of hundreds in New Orleans.
Timberlake 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.
The evening raised funds for Shriners Hospitals for Children.
