Justin & Friends Take Vegas by Storm

Last night, JT hosted the “Justin Timberlake and Friends Concert” in Las Vegas at the Planet Hollywood Theater. The event was one of many this week for the official PGA tournament, Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, taking place at the TPC Summerlin Course. The star-studded concert featured performances by Leona Lewis, 50 Cent, Maroon 5, Rihanna, Jonas Brothers, and Boys II Men, who had long-stemmed red roses delivered to every woman in the audience. Justin also took the stage, playing the piano and guitar for a couple songs and performing “SexyBack” for the last time. He told the 7,000-person crowd he was retiring the single after that last live performance. He also performed a duet with Esmee Denters, a protégé from his record label Tennman Records. And at the end of the evening, he joined special guest Lionel Richie on the stage for a rousing performance of “Easy.” The three-hour sold-out concert ended up raising over $1 million for the Shriners Hospitals for Children.
