2014 Oscars Host, Justin Timberlake?

It’s almost as if he never left, but for six years, we were Justin Timberlake..less. Now, though, he’s back with trademark falsetto swag, a hit new album and Jay Z on his side. Is there anything JT can’t do?

Well, he can certainly host, as he proved on Saturday Night Live, which has lead to speculation that he might be the man to host The Oscars come 2014. “Getting Justin to host would now be a huge coup for the Oscars. He’d been considered before, but they always thought he was too young and not seasoned enough,” an insider revealed to The National Enquirer. “Now, he’s the frontrunner for the job — after showing he knows how to sing, dance, host, and improvise on the spot." The star has himself trued to dissipate these rumours, though, calling them “premature and ridiculous.” He would be a welcome host, though, considering Seth Macfarlane’s pretty dismal effort at hosting the 2013 academy awards. And while the Family Guy creator was bound to cause controversy, good old JT will surely charm his way through the night with ease.

Industry sources, according to Billboard, are suggesting that Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" could sell between 850,000 and 900,000 by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, March 24, which, considering there have only been 31 instances where an album sold more than 850,000 copies in a single week since those kinds of records began, is a pretty big deal.
