Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel got quite the introduction as Justin Timberlake opened the show with a rousing rendition of “Can’t Stop the Feeling” that got the A-list audience dancing.
Starting outside the Dolby Theatre, where the awards are held, Timberlake sang and danced through the lobby, picking up backup dancers along the way.
He also mixed in several bars of Bill Withers’ R&B classic “Lovely Day.”
The lip-synced performance took the “Trolls” voice actor and former ‘N Sync member up onto the stage, before he landed back in the audience, dancing with stars like Halle Berry, Denzel Washington and Meryl Streep, before grabbing wife Jessica Biel to lead an audience-wide dance-along.
