Justin Timberlake may be known for his pop/R&B-esque songs, but his performance for the 2013 American Music Awards was “Drink You Away,” the third single off his newest studio album, “The 20/20 Experience 2,” which dropped back in September.
It’s a terrific hybrid of pop, rock, country and jazz. The song has everything — Timberlake on an acoustic guitar, a killer horn section and a cavalcade of backup musicians and singers that are clearly having such a great time it makes you want to jump out of your chair. We loved it.
Here are some of the best GIFs of the performance plus the video. Also, we would not be the least bit sad if Timberlake released a country album at some point. He could totally do it, right?
