Serenada'sPen'D Media Breakdown: GRAMMY Big Ups or Slam Downs? JT Returns To His Blue-eyed Soul With Raving Results
My absolute favorite performance hands down (sorry Miguel even though you’re number 1 to me) was Justin Timberlake‘s “Suit And Tie” with Jay-Z. It may have been the High Definition or Surround Sound on my television set because I was hearing every bump and boom from the bass in that song! It gave it Life. When JT released the audio version I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. It wasn’t a big deal, but now after listening AND viewing a live performance WITH a live “big-band” on the Grammy stage I’ve become an instant fan 4-sho. Great way to Return after 4 years!
Justin has this effortless ease and casualty on stage as if he’s done it many times before, which he has! A far cry from his “Pop” boy band N’Sync days. Would you ever have thought coming from so far left this white boy would have so much soul?!? I sure didn’t! N’Sync was top back when I was in high school and many white girls loved him and N’Sync. Actually the one big memory I have is buying a ticket to go to a concert with some friends and ended up being left behind. So much for my N’Sync experience but I’m not sore about it. I’ve learned many lessons with “friends” and special occasions such as those. It’s made me more humble experiencing the loss of many opportunities, especially many years ago when T.L.C. came into town during one of the most dangerous snowy years we’ve had in Georgia. A friend invited me to the concert but the weather was so bad my parents forbade me to go for my safety. My friend didn’t want me to take her down with her so I believe she found a way to go on ahead even though it was unsafe. Looking back without regret it would’ve been a great experience since third member Left Eye‘s life ended short in 2001 from a car accident. Moral of story, don’t get hung up on certain things if you know you can catch it again or take a risk. The choice is yours. The older you get the more you realize special moments in time do not come around often.
Back to JT‘s performance, the dancing was in sync, on time, well-done, and just plain Kool. I’m loving this throw back which EOnline sums up rather nicely:
