Justin Timberlake will bring sexy back to Beijing when he joins US-born Wang Leehom onstage at the latter's June 14 "Music Man II" solo show at the Bird's Nest.
"China, let's meet up for a date. Excited to perform with @wangleehom June 14th at Beijing's Bird's Nest National Stadium!" Timberlake tweeted.
"Looks like you guys have already seen the news... we're bringing @jtimberlake to Beijing as our special guest!!! Let's make this big, JT!! Wang added, having only opened his official Twitter account on May 8. In an interesting comparison, Wang has 44.7 million Weibo fans and is one of the microblog's most popular figures, whereas Timberlake has "only" 32.1 million Twitter followers.
The show will be Timberlake's first live appearance in China. No word yet on how many or what songs the two will perform.
The two have had parallel careers, starting out in music before crossing over to film. Aside from selling millions of albums each, Wang starred in movies including Ang Lee's Lust, Caution, while Timberlake has appeared in David Fincher's The Social Network.
This is the second time Wang is performing a solo show at the Bird's Nest, becoming the first solo artist to do so in 2012. Tickets are already on sale, with best seats going for RMB 1,680 each. Nose-bleed seats are RMB 380.
Wang previously shared the stage with Usher during the latter's 2010 show at what's now the MasterCard Center, performing four songs together.
We couldn't help think that Timberlake's appearance and the final installment of dazeFEAST, both announced on the same day and scheduled for June 14, is not a coincidence. Could JT make a cameo? DazeFEAST organizer Badr Benjelloun could not be reached for comment.
