Justin Timberlake returned to the Grammy stage on Sunday night, performing a pair of songs from his forthcoming album, The 20/20 Experience, with guest Jay-Z appearing on the Timbaland-produced debut single "Suit & Tie."

Backed by a 1920's-era big band, with a massive horn section and three lively backup dancers, a very dapper Timberlake invited Jay-Z onstage halfway through "Suit & Tie" ("Get out that seat, Hov!"). The rapper delivered a razor-sharp guest verse on the Michael Jackson-esque cut. 

Timberlake next unveiled a new song, "Pusher Love Girl" ("Roll it up and let it run through my veins"), a mid-tempo Motown-nodding number that leans heavily on the singer's trademark falsetto. "Step with me, Los Angeles!" he instructed the euphoric Staples Center crowd. The 20/20 Experience is due on March 19th.
