The Tiny Desk concert review.

Justin Timberlake’s appearance at NPR’s Tiny Desk was an extravaganza of music and camaraderie, unlike anything the series has seen before. Accompanied by an ensemble of 15 musicians and vocalists, including the dynamic Tennessee Kids, Timberlake transformed the intimate space into a showcase of his new album, “Everything I Thought It Was,” while paying homage to his earlier hits. The set list was a perfect blend of nostalgia and newness, kicking off with classics like “Señorita” and “Rock Your Body” before diving into newer melodies. The performance of “SexyBack,” complete with Timberlake on a megaphone, was particularly iconic, embodying the joy and innovation that have defined his career. Despite the limited space, the energy was palpable, with every artist on stage contributing to a unified, vibrant performance that exemplified the power of live music.
