Justin Timberlake Channels Michael Jackson in Concert: Watch!

by at . Comments

Kicking off the western leg of his "The 20/20 Experience" tour at Staples Center in L.A., Justin Timberlake busted out Michael Jackson's hit "Human Nature."

Of course, Justin performed a deluge of his own smash hits, including "My Love," "Holy Grail" and "Sexy Back," but the MJ tribute was an instant smash.

Here's a brief clip, courtesy of Instagram, of the reaction:

Celebs including Matt Damon, Amy Adams and Justin's former Lance Bass (with his special "friends and family" VIP pass) packed the house for the show.

No NSYNC reunion on stage this time, unfortunately.

Undoubtedly influenced by Michael like so many artists, Timberlake undoubtedly would've made Jackson proud by riffing on one of his best songs live.
