Talk about a grand opening!
Justin Timberlake tore up the stage to open the 2017 Academy Awards and perform his hit, "Can't Stop the Feeling," from the Trolls soundtrack. The superstar began his performance in the lobby of the theater before making his way down the aisles and onto the stage. Timberlake was joined by dancers in their best evening wear and a backing band, bringing the audience to its feet as he performed the catchy hit.
He then transitioned into Bill Withers' "Lovely Day" before ending with a massive dance party in the audience as he transitioned back into "Can't Stop the Feeling. He then passed the baton to host Jimmy Kimmel, who delivered a hilarious monolog.
