Justin Timberlake launches music comeback with Grammy performance
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Justin Timberlake, making his pop music comeback with a new single and album, will perform at next month's Grammy Awards for the first time in four years, Grammy organizers said on Wednesday.
Timberlake, 31, will take the stage at the music industry's biggest night in Los Angeles on February 10, ahead of the scheduled March release of his first album since 2006.
"The 20/20 Experience" marks Timberlake's return to music after several years in which he has focused more on acting and business ventures, including a clothing line and a partnership in social networking site Myspace.
At the Grammy Awards ceremony and show, Timberlake will join performers and country music nominees Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley, singers Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood, and bands Mumford & Sons and FUN.
Elton John will also duet with rising British singer Ed Sheeran, and the Grammy ceremony will be hosted by rapper LL Cool J. Other performers will be announced in the next 10 days.
