Where in the world is Justin Timberlake and his trademark fedora? That’s the question of the hour seeing as JT was scheduled to perform on the September 23’s Tonight Show on NBC. Deadline reports that though Justin will still be chatting with host Jay Leno, he is no longer going to perform.
The pop music icon canceled his performance because he’s feeling “under the weather,” says Deadline. In his defense, Justin did have a huge weekend. He made a rumored appearance at the Big Sur, California, wedding of fellow entertainer/Saturday Night Live star Andy Samberg and gave knockout performances at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas. All that traveling sounds like the perfect situation to catch a head cold.
There may be more than a sore throat and runny nose behind Justin’s change of plans, however. Deadline says they got wind of another reason the performance may have been called off: to “ensure maximum impact tomorrow (September 24) night, when the pop star is scheduled to perform a free concert on Hollywood Boulevard.” Who’s the concert for? The Tonight Show‘s rival Jimmy Kimmel Live on ABC. Curious, no?
Whatever the reason for the cancellation, if Justin is sick we hope he feels better soon. We need you back out bringing sexy back ASAP.
