No one, not even Justin Timberlake, can do it all.  Actually, strike that - JT seemingly does it all. He just doesn't do it all equally well. Beginning an hour late and delivering a 140-minute, entertaining but uneven show Sunday at United Center, the pop singer/musician/actor/comedian/entrepreneur/golfer covered Elvis Presley (“Heartbreak Hotel”), Michael Jackson (“Human Nature”) and Bell Biv DeVoe (“Poison”).  He danced with remarkable ease but also spent a significant amount of time playing piano and acoustic guitar, the latter a particular point of emphasis...

***1/2 (out of four) When you're in love, there's no way to look cool. In theory, love's a graceful, sophisticated experience, but in practice it's full of silly pet names and stupid inside jokes - things that make the other person laugh and onlookers roll their eyes. In the seven years since his last album, “FutureSex/LoveSounds,” Justin Timberlake has staked out a career on being an impeccably cool dude--single-handed championship of the pork pie hat aside. So the recently married singer's gushing, lovestruck third solo album, “The 20/20 Experience,” may not come...

Justin Timberlake's attitude toward people's impatience for new music from him has been, in so many words, “cry me a river.” He wanted to act. And who were we to deny him “The Love Guru”? Thankfully, more than six years since Timberlake's last studio album, 2006's “FutureSex/LoveSounds,” Jessica Biel's husband is back on the bandwagon - with “The 20/20 Experience,” due March 19, and the highly anticipated “Legends of the Summer” stadium tour with Jay-Z, which stops July 22 at Soldier Field.

Fans who got their hands on concert and game tickets to Soldier Field last year will have first crack at tickets to one of the hottest shows of 2013. Luca Serra, director of sponsorship and media for Solider Field, said Friday that a special presale will be held Tuesday for Jay Z and Justin Timberlake's "Legends of the Summer" tour , which comes to Chicago on July 22. Serra said anyone that bought a ticket to a Soldier Field event last year--including Bears games, college games, soccer games and concerts--through Ticketmaster and...

40/40 Clubs will collide with "The 20/20 Experience" all summer--not because "Suit and Tie" will be all over the radio but because Jay-Z (who owns the 40/40 Club sports bar chain) and Justin Timberlake, the men behind the (highly anticipated and mildly received) song, are reportedly planning a massive tour together for later this year. JT hinted at a big announcement on Twitter before the Grammys, where the pair performed together. It was apparently a preview of an 11- to 13-city tour set for stadiums around the country, ...

After squealing at a very suspect decibel for three solid minutes, it hit me that I didn't know what I wanted when I heard that Justin Timberlake was coming back. He's provided a lot of classic moments in music ( I know, the "c" word applied to the guy who sang "It's gonna be me. " Keep reading anyway. )  After a flagrant false start last week, we received the new Justin Timberlake song late last night - the first since 2006. The collective response has been tepid at best. Here are a few things that caught my attention after more than a few...

Asked to choose if great songwriting or great performance ability is more important for a musician, "Inside Llewyn Davis" star Oscar Isaac hesitates, wavers, then decides. "I'd say definitely songwriting. Because if you perform a [bleepy] song, then just 'cause you're really good at performing it ... " says the 33-year-old actor, who plays the film's titular folk singer, at the James Hotel. "You can put diamonds on a turd, I guess. " In other words, you can try, but you can't fake quality.

Justin Timberlake is known for his versatility as an artist--for Sunday's American Music Awards he has snagged nominations in the Pop, R&B and Soul categories--but there's still one genre of music he's yet to cover: country. Apparently the Grammy-winning performer wants to change that. According to Billboard, Timberlake told Nashville-based SiriusXM station The Highway that his dreams of being a country star are "still alive," and that he still has his eye on a Best Country Album award.

1.5 out of 4 stars At least Justin Timberlake's “The 20/20 Experience: Part 1” provided some stylistic variation between tracks like “Suit & Tie” and “Mirrors.” On “Part 2,” JT's lost in his own reflection. On the second and final installment of “The 20/20 Experience,” Timberlake's wrestling with many of the same themes from “FutureSex/LoveSounds”: hot sexy sex, heartbreak, drum machines and true love. But that album came out in 2006. In the time JT was gone from the music world, he's become bros with...

Justin Timberlake made us wait seven years between albums last time, but in 2013 we haven't even had time to miss him. On Wednesday, JT completed a piece-by-piece online reveal for the "20/20 Experience: Part 2" track listing, giving fans something fresh to speculate about before the album drops Sept. 30. Now that we've got the pieces of the puzzle, we decided to put them together ourselves by guessing what each song will be about based on its title. Warning: This may be wildly inaccurate.
