The artist sang "Take Back the Night" for an extremely lucky crowd of 150 at the legendary Hoboken club on Aug. 28, part of a shoot for a Target commercial touting the release of The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2, available exclusively at the big-box retailer starting Sept. 30.
There's really nothing like live music, and it's obvious from these exclusive clips that Timberlake gave his fans—many of whom lined up outside in the rain for several hours beforehand to get in—a good (if only a one-song) show.
Timberlake is currently on a press tear in anticipation of the release of his fourth studio album next week.
He'll be on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight (Hollywood Boulevard was closed off to accommodate his outdoor performance), it's once again "Timberlake Tuesday" on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and he visited The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on Monday.
"We rehearsed and he had some meeting out of state, and he showed up on the Air Force One helicopter and I felt weird, I'm like in his house," Timberlake described his first glimpse of the commander in chief. "This is where he lives and he's not there, and—I didn't steal anything, I just wanna say that—but he shows up and the helicopter lands and the thing rolls out and he's just like [mimics a strut]."
The entertainer also sat down with CNN's Newsday, where he talked about growing up in a small town and having imaginary friends.
"I was weird," he admitted. Better yet, make that unique.
"I grew up in a small town, and I definitely felt like I was an individual, always," Timberlake said. "I grew up an only child and I'm always kind of like—you know, when you grow up that way, it's like you get all the perks, but you also get all the responsibility. Like there's no one else to blame the vase getting broken on."
