It's no secret that Justin Timberlake is highly inspired by the late, great Pop icon, Michael Jackson. From the dance moves and vocals, to the Disco influenced sound of "Take Back The Night," Timberlake has never been shy in acknowledging his admiration for the legend. On BBC Radio One Live Lounge, Timberlake paid tribute to the King of Pop, performing the Jackson 5's "Shake Your Body."
Backed by a live band and dancers, Timberlake gave a rousing rendition of the 1978 classic. With crisp vocals and upbeat choreography, the homage paid to Jackson was something his biggest fans would be proud of. The song was performed in its classic form, but also given a new spin with a middle funk session by the band. As the drummers jammed, Timberlake and the dancers got down to the music, bringing the audience to clap along.
Gearing up for the September 27 release of The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, Timberlake is currently touring in support of the album. The 20/20 Experience World Tour will begin its U.S. trek this November.
