In my high school years and that was a good 13 years ago, I loved N’Sync. Not the buy-all-their-merchandise, follow-their-every-life-story type of fangirl; more of like, taping their MTVs and replaying it over and over on the television. One of my favourite tracks back then was This I Promise You. It’s still in my playlist today. It never gets old!
Lance Bass used to be my favourite. While I thought he was the best-looking among them all, I found that Justin Timberlake had too curly mop of a hair. And the rest, I just didn’t care.
Then, Justin went solo and went on to have some great tracks to his name like Sexyback, What Goes around Comes Around and Cry Me a River. Then he stopped making music and went to venture the big screens.
And then, six years later and married, he returned with The 20/20 Experience; with a comeback performance of Suit & Tie at the 55th Grammys Awards. I was immediately blown away by his new tracks, his stage presence and performance; I had never doubt his stage performances! More surprisingly, I was blown away by his new look and that’s because I never found him attractive before.
Well, here’s what changed my mind. Look at that!
That’s a major overhaul on the physical image there! I am convinced that a man’s hairstyle really defines and sets his whole look. This is a case in point for JT. Look at that old-school side-parting style and the suit and bow-tie Not everybody can carry it off well but the outfit fits him like a glove. Oh why so dapper?
I think marriage did absolute wonders on him! Looks aside, his performance went on to show that he still got it in him, if not better. I used to be annoyed at how his music was always crowded with him singing in his upper register/vocal range but it seems this time round, he’s changed that as well!
What a handsome couple. I confess. I am a fangirl. It’s been a really long time since I fangirl-ed anybody and they usually are footballers. This is a change.
I am currently repeating two of his new tracks: Mirrors & Suit & Tie. Below are my three favourite LIVE performances from him. This is pop music restored. He absolutely killed it. Look at him move, ladies. Just look at him.
Good things must share right? Tell me you are converted already if you are not a fan before after watching these videos! ENJOY!
P/s: I have been harassing the fiance to try out JT’s new hairstyle and he’s not convinced. Something about “I can’t carry it off, blah blah.” Sigh. GUYS.
