Justin Timberlake to perform at Eurovision

Associated Press Associated Press 9/05/2016

American singer and songwriter Justin Timberlake will be a guest performer at the Eurovision Song Contest this weekend.

Organisers say Timberlake will take the stage during Saturday's competition "as an interval act" with his new single, "Can't stop the feeling."

The annual competition, known for its peculiar blend of techno beats, rock ballads and bubblegum pop, attracted more than 200 million viewers last year.

This year's contest in Stockholm will air in the 42 participating countries, plus China, Kazakhstan, Portugal, New Zealand and, for the first time, the United States.

Dami Im is representing Australia with her song Sound of Silence, with online polling putting her among the top five contenders.

Show Producer Sven Stojanovic says Timberlake's appearance is made extra special because Swedish songwriters Max Martin and Shellback have co-written and co-produced his song.
