When Justin Timberlake performed at Eurovision 2016, contestants rushed to share their “Justin Moment” on social media, still breathless from their brush with the American star.

And now, as part of his promotion of the animated film Trolls, he has been setting Eurovision stars alight once again, having separate interviews with 2016 contestant Laura Tesoro, and Eurovision winners Dima Bilan and Lena.

Justin was accompanied by American actress Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect) and the pair also recorded their voices for the local versions of the movie in each country.

The second brush with the “Can’t Stop The Feeling” hitmaker is the latest achievement in a rather successful year for young Laura. She’s already secured a top 10 result at the Eurovision final, signed a contract with Sony Music Belgium, won the wiwibloggs Vision Music Award 2016 for Most Improved and received a nomination as best Belgian act at the upcoming MTV EMA Music Awards.

The teen queen’s slayage doesn’t stop there and she’s also moved into movies, voicing the role of Poppy (the princess of the Trolls) in the Belgian version of the animated film.

The original American version of the movie features Justin Timberlake as an actor, but also as a music producer.

In fact, he released a special version of his hit song “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” for the movie.

Laura came to London to interview Justin and Anna, and as you can watch in the video, she was very excited to meet Justin again.

When Laura told Anna and Justin that she is playing Anna’s role in the Belgian version of the movie, Justin wanted to know if she sings as well, and then she reminded him that they’d already met at Eurovision.

Justin clearly didn’t remember her at first, but after her reminder he was like OMG, yes.

“That’s right! Oh my gosh! Did you open? You opened the show,” he says. “You were great and now you’re in the movie…Thanks, Eurovision!”

After those sweet memories Anna wanted to hear Laura sing, so Laura sang the Dutch version of “Can’t Stop the Feeling!”

She was totally impressed: “It sounds so sexy and mysterious…” she said.

Laura, who knows how to deliver a pop song in any language, remained modest. She told Anna: “I had to imitate you so there must be some kind of sexiness in your voice if I sound sexy.”

Laura is not the only Eurovision singer that got to meet Justin and play a role in the new movie.

Lena and Dima Bilan also got the honour, but we’re pretty sure he had no clue who they were, as they pre-date his knowledge of the contest.

Dima, who is beyond busy judging “The Voice” and recording new music, managed to find the time to fly to Los Angeles to meet Justin and record his voice for the movie.

Here he is singing the Russian version of “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” with Victoria Dayneko.

Lena, who will serve as a judge in the German national selection, met Justin together with Daniele Rizzo for a “getting to know each other” session.

Among the existential questions were: “Vanilla or chocolate?” and “Pizza or pasta?”

After the interview Justin was quoted as calling Lena “sweet and very professional”, while Lena said it was hard not to stare at him.

Eurovision fans keen to hear Lena sing in German can finally say “Amen!”

She works her native tongue in the movie, as you can hear below.

Which Eurovision singer impressed you the most? And who do you think makes the best troll? You can let us know in the comments section below.

it’s not that we have anti-american feelings, but did he seriously forget who Laura was? really?

even if he was joking I wouldn’t be surprised as Americans (not everyone ofc) often show zero interest/respect for everything that happens outside their borders. poor Justin. 🙁

Did he really forget who she was or was that a bit of a joke? If you are being interviewed by someone, just polite to find out if you have met before!

“Two people here complaining about anti-American comments that don’t yet exist.”

You were thinking them. We Americans can tell. 😀

I doubt that Justin doesn’t know Dima considering the fact they both had Timbaland as producer for some Years????
Anyway good article????

@Lanti
There’s five of you and you all know each other? What state do you live in, Rhode Island?

I’ll agree with you otherwise, geoblocking sucks, and our commentators were godawful.

wait, I just checked the jesc 2016 wikipedia page and it said miss IRA LOSCO will be the host for the contest in Valetta! Is this correct?

@Alenn
I’d be fine with the USA is involved, as long as
a) there’s no geoblocking
b) competent commentators (e.g. no Kardashian jokes about Azerbaijan, actually knowing where the countries are, knowing how to pronounce words)
c) if there’s a general interest in the country.
Unfortunately, that’s not the case, as there’s probably 5 fans in my state right now and none of us watched the contest at 3pm EDT/9pm CET due to scheduling issues.

Here we go again with the “save our continent from foreign influence” comments. It’s music, guys! Surely that goes beyond everything.
And Justin Timberlake is great at it, a true artist. I understand why he is an influence for so many contemporary performers.

Ironically Måns is dubbing Justin’s character in the Swedish version. So if he comes here for the promotion I can’t wait to see their reunion:)

By the way in the video where Dima Bilan is recording the track, he is singing with Victoria Dayneco, whose producer has been speaking about her possible participation in Eurovision for some years.
