Justin Timberlake Performs “Drink You Away” at 2013 AMAs

blame it on JES7 November 24, 2013

The 2013 American Music Awards kicked off tonight at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles. Nominated for five awards (second to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ six), JT took the stage and gave a helluva performance of “Drink You Away” off his now certified platinum The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2).

Speaking of Macklmore and Ryan Lewis, the Seattle duo beat out both Jay Z and Kendrick Lamar for Rap/Hip-Hop “Album of the Year” with The Heist. JT is currently sitting at three wins with the show nearing completion.

  • Thank Me

    That performance was a 10/10. The energy from the band was amazing.

  • shake

    JT stays winning. You see the thirst?

  • Matchz Malone

    My guess… The album version doesnt sound this good.

    • who cares

      To be fair something like this wouldn’t work well within the context of the album. It was specifically altered this way for a grand, larger-than-life performance. The album version is much more reserved in comparison, but still dope, in my opinion.

  • who cares

    This man is so fucking insane. One of my favorite cuts off of 2 of 2, and the performance was crazy.

    • for real. the energy JT and his band gave was amazing.

  • Justin Kamerer

    Agree with everyone…absolute master performance. I do wish JT had more substance to his songs but damn, this is the pinnacle of pop to me…about the only type of pop I can tolerate these days…
