Justin Timberlake to sing at 2016 Eurovision Song Contest

Pop singer Justin Timberlake will perform at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Sweden this Saturday (May 14).

The 35-year-old chart-topper will perform his new single Can’t Stop The Feeling at the glitzy ceremony in Stockholm – and it’s unlikely to be nil points for the nine-time Grammy award-winner.

Timberlake’s comeback track was written by Max Martin (Britney Spears and Katy Perry) and is taken from the soundtrack to new animated movie Trolls.

The Cry Me A River singer will perform his new song during the interval at the finals.

In a statement, the show’s producer Sven Stojanovic, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity, we are very happy and excited that Justin Timberlake will perform his new song together with his band in our show.”

“It makes it extra special that the Swedish songwriters Max Martin and Shellback have co-written and co-produced the song together with Justin Timberlake.”

Timberlake provides the voice of main character Branch in Trolls, which will hits cinemas in November.

The video for Can’t Stop The Feeling features cameos from Timberlake’s Trolls co-stars, including James Corden, Gwen Stefani, Anna Kendrick and Icona Pop.

In a recent interview, Timberland said his fans can expect more new music to come from him in the near future.

He told Carson Daly’s radio show: “I don’t know exactly when I’m going to put it out but yeah, I’m definitely working on a new album.”

Timberlake also said what he was working on was influenced by his southern roots.

“I think where I grew up in America has a lot of influence,” he said. “Growing up in Tennessee — very central of the country — Memphis is known as the birthplace of rock and roll, but also the home of the blues, but Nashville’s right down the street so there’s a lot of country music.”
