After taking to the stage in Stockholm, global megastar Justin Timberlake just can’t stop that Eurovision 2016 feeling.
He made that much clear on Thursday, when, during a stop in Australia, he appeared on the Nova 96.9 radio station in Sydney to promote his worldwide smash “Can’t Stop The Feeling”.
Among other things he sung his praises for Eurovision 2016 runner up Dami Im. Yes, he’s had a taste of our favourite Asian sensation and he is loving her as much as we do.
Justin, who took us all by surprise as the Eurovision 2016 interval act, was full of kind words for the “Sound of Silence” singer.
The 35-year-old pop star told radio hosts Fitzy and Wippa: “Australia was represented beautifully…I thought that it was a great song and and an amazing performance.”
And guess what? JT wants the contest to go global and to build bridges to America.
“In my opinion there should also be a Worldvision to let everybody in on the fun.”
PERFORMANCE – JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AT EUROVISION 2016
Justin Timberlake’s inclusion at Eurovision sparked controversy within the Eurovision community. Many saw his performance as a gateway to American participation at the contest, much like in 2014 when Jessica Mauboy paved the way for Australia’s inclusion in Vienna a year later.
His performance was timed with the United States airing its first ever live broadcast of the contest on Logo TV, adding further fuel to the speculative fire that the US could field a contestant at Eurovision in the future.

The European Broadcasting Union may also be testing the American audience to see if an Americavision could take place one day, much like the inaugural Asiavision which is due to debut in 2017.
Could you imagine? The USA, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Barbados, Jamaica and Colombia all fighting for an Americavision trophy? We’re looking at you Shakira. Waka Waka!
