Justin Timberlake, the driving force behind "Love Never Felt So Good," said it was always a dream to make a song with his musical idol Michael Jackson.

Now, albeit posthumously for Michael, Justin has realized the dream and produced a video with the late, great King of Pop as well. And it's a good one:

Four minutes long, the video is an obvious homage to Jackson, featuring clips from his past music videos and dancers’ imitating his dance moves.

"Love Never Felt So Good" is part of the album Xscape, featuring MJ’s singing alongside some of the biggest stars today, such as Timberlake and Mary J. Blige.

"Even when Michael was alive, we never stopped working on the song 'Xscape,'" said producer Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins of the new slate of recordings.

"It was one of the songs where he specifically said to me, 'It has to see the light of day one day.' Everyone did a really great job on this project," he said.

What do you think of Jackson and Justin's new song, and video?

Michael Jackson's posthumous single "Love Never Felt So Good" dropped last night at the iHeartRadio Music Awards, whose inaugural telecast aired on NBC.

Some Michael Jackson fans were understandably skeptical, even angry about a new "contemporized" posthumous album that might sully the artist’s legacy.

They might be pleasantly surprised after hearing "Love Never Felt So Good," Epic Records' lead single from Xscape. Take a listen and decide for yourself:

With producers Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, and Jerome “J-Roc” Harmon manning the control board, the orchestration overpowers Jackson a bit at times.

On the flip side, the trio did an superb job of mixing Timberlake’s voice - did you catch it on the background vocals? - in harmony with the King of Pop's.

The disco-heavy sound reminiscent of his breakthrough album Off the Wall is no shock, as Jackson initially wrote the song in with Paul Anka in 1983.

It's not his best, but if this is indicative of what Michael Jackson left on the cutting room floor, it makes his untimely death in 2009 that much more tragic.

He clearly had a lot of memorable work ahead of him. Usher helped debut the song, dancing to it at the inaugural iHeartRadio Music Awards. Watch:

Philadelphia can't make up their minds about Justin Timberlake.

At his 20/20 Experience World Tour concert on Tuesday night, the singer had one fan who got too close and another who seemed to resent being there at all!

While showing off his dance moves during "Cabaret", Timberlake acted quickly to remove a grabby fan's hand from his behind.

I'm sure when you're Justin Timberlake stuff like that happens all the time. He's definitely perfected his brush-off.

But later during the show he addressed a fan with a VERY different reaction when he spotted the woman near the stage flipping him the bird ...

Justin Timberlake has released another new single, featuring longtime collaborator Timbaland, entitled "TKO." Is it yet another knockout for the superstar?

Listen below and you tell us!

"TKO" is the second sampling from Justin Timberlake's upcoming album, The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2, which is due for release September 30.

Back in July the singer put out "Take Back the Night," which itself followed a string of hits from Justin's first album of 2013, The 20/20 Experience.

The new track comes on stronger than its predecessor, with its grinding hip-hop beat and synthesizers, and clocks in at over seven minutes in length.

And the JT experience rolls on. Tell us what you think of the song - and while you're at it, of his matching tuxedo with Jessica Biel - in the comments!

A Tweet from Justin Timberlake drew thousands of fans to Hoboken, N.J., for a brief, surprise concert this week, with a lucky 150 getting to see him live.

The occasion was a commercial shoot for a new Target ad. The venue? Maxwell's, a revered Hoboken music club which closed on July 31 after 35 years.

"Join me & @Target tonight for just one song. Let's 'Take Back the Night.' First 150 get in. See you there!" the superstar singer, 32, wrote on Twitter.

Within minutes, thousands of fans and the news media descended on the club. Police had to bring out loudspeakers to try to keep the scene orderly.

The wait is over: Jay Z's "Holy Grail" music video has been released.

Check out his epic collaboration with Justin Timberlake below!

The first single off H.O.V.A.'s 12th studio album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, samples Nirvana's grunge rock anthem "Smells Like Teen Spirit," sung by J.T.

Timberlake certainly makes his mark, but it's still Jay's show.

The stop-start nature of the video makes for a bit of a disjointed experience, and there are also moments in which Jay Z's voice is intentionally slowed down.

But that's precisely the idea of "Holy Grail," which strives to bring together a set of cinematic images in an artistic display that is nothing short of groundbreaking.

Does it succeed in that ambitious goal? Tell us below:

What do you think of "Holy Grail"?

Are the other members of N SYNC upset with Justin Timberlake for their small role in his epic 15-minute performance at the MTV Video Music Awards?

In case you missed it - which would be understandable if you so much as blinked - the much-touted N Sync reunion Sunday night was pretty minimal.

Joey Fatone, Lance Bass, Chris Kirkpatrick and JC Chasez joined JT for a brief medley of the boy band's hits "Gone," "Girlfriend" and "Bye, Bye, Bye."

But that was it, a quick interlude in an acclaimed performance carried by Timberlake himself before and after the group took the stage in Brooklyn.

"They were pushing for more," an insider tells Us Weekly.

Last night's N Sync reunion was the talk of the music world, but it looks definitively like a one-off. The fierce five are done once again after that effort.

While N Sync came together as a part of Justin Timberlake's performance, in honor of his Vanguard Award, there is no talk of reforming the band.

Joey Fatone‘s dad, Joseph Fatone, Sr., said “People are hyping this [reunion] as to mean like next month they’ll go on tour, but there’s been no talk of it."

“Yes there are still fanatical fans who hope for one day that N Sync will get back together, but the truth is that they are all doing their own thing now.”

“I don’t think they should pump this up as much. It’s not like they’re going on tour.”

He may have reunited with N Sync last night, but Justin Timberlake also proved why he made the right decision to go off on his own.

The solo artist blew viewers away with a medley of hits that included takes on “Take Back the Night,” “SexyBack,” “Like I Love You,” “My Love,” “Cry Me a River,” “Senorita,” and “Rock Your Body."

He then welcomed his former boy band members on stage to rock out with new choreography... only to continue with “Suit & Tie” and “Mirrors" after they departed.

It was a whirlwind, impressive, 15-minute set for JT. And we loved every second!
