Justin Timberlake Rocks SNL With Seizure-Inducing Laser Light Show

He's come a long, long way since 'N Sync

SNL brought out the big guns for this week’s musical guest Justin Timberlake, offering a high-tech laser light show to accompany the singer’s performance of “Only When I Walk Away.” Once you get past the fact that that the light show is kind of reminiscent of an old Microsoft screen saver, the performance is solid and full of energy, with JT showing off plenty of dance moves.

Later in the night, Timberlake changed up the vibe with a mellow, acoustic performance of his ballad “Pair of Wings.”

These performances should serve as a reminder of just how far JT has come. Take a moment to remember his ‘N Sync days, when he used to be this. Never forget, friends. Never forget.


"Seizure inducing"?  Why is that the chosen descriptor?  



Question: What was the reason for including the words "seizure-inducing" in the title of this article? If you make no mention of the lights causing a seizure, which can happen, this is simply another article showing ignorance to epilepsy awareness. 

As someone who has epilepsy, but also grew up in the generation of 'NSYNC and JT fans, I don't see the purpose of TIME including the term "seizure-inducing" in this article if you aren't going to reference photosensitive seizures. VERY poor. 



@enduringepilepsy The term is trying to push the production value of the stage show.  Nothing will beat Nine Inch Nails Tension Tour. It is only what you find important to what is associated with your favorite artist. Thank you Mr.Reznor,, Rob Sheridan, and "Moment Factory" for showing fans what it is all about. I'm NOT thankful for the lack of Reznor fans on this board!!
