In a review, The Telegraph's Neil McCormick marvels at former Mickey Mouse club Timberlake's incredible career trajectory and ability to master "all the sounds, styles and moves of the most talented black artists," adding "Timberlake sings, plays and dances with dazzling grace and finesse" and that Jay-Z's unexpected Friday appearance was the "crowning moment" of the hit-packed set, "like an endorsement from the godfather of hip hop to a new prince of pop."
