While there have been some mixed reviews for Justin Timberlake‘s new material from upcoming fifth Disc MAN OF THE WOODS, this certainly is promising. Have you checked-out the Art Perez-directed one-take Video for SAY SOMETHING ft. Chris Stapleton, who just took home three GRAMMYs this past weekend? We’re getting Rehab (which he wrote for Rihanna) vibes but this is a step in the right direction for Timberlake.

Justin Timberlake was the big Winner at the 2014 Billboard MusicAwards this evening, held in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Arena! The R&B Crooner took home a whopping seven trophies, including wins for Top Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Male Artist (Female went to Katy Perry), Top Billboard 200 Album for The 20/20 Experience and more! Timberlake, like Perry, had accepted his Awards via satellite.
Following behind closely were Rock Outfit Imagine Dragons, who are slated to visit Toronto next month for the MuchMusic Video Awards. The Quartet won Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Duo/Group and Top Rock Artist.
Controversial Hit Blurred Lines earned Robin Thicke, Pharrell and T.I. a total four Billboard Music Awards tonight including Top Hot 100 Song, Top Digital Song, Top Radio Song and Top R&B Song.
Country Star and former American Idol was awarded the Milestone Award, while Multimedia Empire Jennifer Lopez was given the important Icon Award, on-hand to accept the honour with a heart-felt speech.
Many tonight were talking about Michael Jackson‘s resurrection in Hologram form, performing new posthumous Single, Slave to the Rhyhtm. The surprise struck a chord with Audience members, some seen tearing-up.

Miley Cyrus also turned a few heads paying homage to The Beatles with a Cover of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds:
He’s been hand-picked by the likes of Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Oprah, Naomi Campbell and Justin Timberlake. After four years in the making, DJ Cassidy is set to make an explosive debut with his first Album Paradise Royale, set tentatively for a release in May. The star-studded Affair features collaborations with 22 of the most influencial Musicians of the Disco Era and a roster of Guest Vocalists which will have you asking, “Like, how?!?”. Mary J. Blige, Estelle, R. Kelly, Cee-Lo, John Legend, Kelly Rowland, Passion Pit and so many more lend their talents in a way you’ve never quite heard them before!
DJ Cassidy dons a stylish fedora and a large brooch with the letter “C”, a signature look which matches his level of musical sophistication. We learn he is very hands-on with his approach, humbled by the opportunity to give musical direction to many of his Heroes on his upcoming Disc. He also incorporates a Live Band to his Act when performing live, as he currently opens on tour for Robin Thicke.
“The first step was I sat down and made a Playlist of my favourite 25 songs of that Era (1978-1982)”, says the eloquent New Yorker says to an intimate Audience of Tastemakers at Toronto’s Drake Hotel, “How do I make my songs feel like these Songs?”. He adds, “I made a list of every Musician who ever worked on these Songs – the Drummer, the Guitar Player, the Horn Player and so on. I made 25 lists and what I saw was the same names repeated over and over and over.”. “To achieve my mission, I had to go to the source – so for the past four years, I reunited 22 of the most legendary Musicians to recreate their sound”. He then went-on to premiere four unheard Tracks from his Album.
I was floored by the John Legend and Estelle Track When The Stars Come Out. I try convincing DJ Cassidy this needs to be his Followup Single as we exchange a hug, him telling me he saw me grooving from the stage as he measured reactions from the Crowd. Current Single, Calling All Hearts featuring the vocals of Robin Thicke and Jessie J. Disco Era heavyweights Philip Bailey, Verdine White and Larry Dunn of Earth, Wind & Fire. Mega-Producer Nile Rodgers even brings out the same guitar we hear on Chic‘s Good Times and Madonna‘s Material Girl. But back to When The Stars Come Out, the Track is like nectar to the ears. “I normally call my own shots, but ultimately I trust the Label to decide what’s best”, he says about whichever Track next will see a release.
DJ Cassidy‘s Soulful Funk revival (please do not use the word “Disco“) could well define the Sound of 2014, reconnecting his Generation of Hip-Hop-obsessed Music Listeners to what he calls “the most universal Dance Music of all time”. The Crowd in attendance is delighted by infectious Passion Pit Collabo So Long Baby, a true mark of his ability as a Producer, making them sound convincingly soulful; there is big potential there for a Crossover Hit.
Noticing an R. Kelly Collaboration sequenced late on his Playlist projected onto the screen, the Audience begged for him to play the Track, Make the World Go Round, and they certainly are not left disappointed, greeting it with loud cheers and claps. The Track is a result of multiple flights and sessions with the controversial Singer/Songwriter. It rates among his best work.
I ask DJ Cassidy whom he wishes to collaborate with still. “I submitted a list of 30 Vocalists and immediately got to work with 10 of my top picks”, he reveals. “Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake and Miguel I hope can be on the next Album.”. Well, at this rate, it sure doesn’t seem impossible – wouldn’t you agree?

Despite filling hosting duties on Saturday Night Live last night, former Alumni Jimmy Fallon may have gotten help from a few Friends – but it is those few Buddies who helped deliver huge laughs on a memorable Christmas episode of Comedy-Sketch Series, now in its 39th Season!
In addition to Madonna, Sir Paul McCartney, Barry Gibb and Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Fallon got a major boost from his Pal and Musical Guest and multi-time Host, Justin Timberlake!
Sir Paul McCartney would kick-off the star-studded Affair in the Evening’s Opening Monologue which would have Fallon doing his best impressions of David Bowie, Bob Dylan and Sir Paul McCartney, only for the latter to appear suddenly on-stage!
See Fallon and McCartney perform Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas:
Timberlake brought back his popular Musical Liquorville Sketch, this time in Holiday Spirit and with the help of Fallon, competing with a Charity Gift Wrapper in Cast Member Aidy Bryant. Bring it on down to Wrappinville! Adorbs!
See TheWrap-Off below!
Although nobody expected it, Madonna had Instagrammed a Photo real-time of her on the Saturday Night Live Stage sitting behind what appeared to be The Bee Gees. Within moments, those watching SNL would realize would this would mean! And who could guess the real Barry Gibb himself would join-in on the fun!
Madonna and the real Gibb himself on The Barry Gibb Show!
Perhaps one of the Highlights of the Evening was the Musical Sketch Let’s Do It in my Twin Bed featuring Fallon and the Ladies of SNL, a bit of an Homage to The Pussycat Dolls with Sisters singing about a little wild surprise for their Boyfriends, “getting wild in a bed for a child!” at their Mom and Dad’s!
Watch Let’s Do It in my Twin Bed below:
One thing that never ceases to make me laugh are imaginary Music Compilation Sketches and here is SNL‘s take on NOW That’s What I Call Christmas featuring impressions of Alanis Morissette, Andrea Bocelli and Alan Rickman:
My favourite Sketch though was the super-sweet Baby, It’s Cold Outside Sketch with Weekend Update‘s Cecily Strong, with her as the clingy One-Night-Stand who manages to win Fallon over amidst a Blizzard in NYC:
