Justin Timberlake was already proudly owning the iHeartRadio Music Festival stage along with his epic opening set when he requested the group, "Can I do one thing particular for you tonight?"
Of course the reply was sure, and he didn't disappoint along with his particular visitor. "Ladies and gents, I'm an enormous fan of this younger man," Timberlake stated, milking the introduction. "He's one of many coolest cats I've met, he's very gifted, and he's about to bless you — please welcome Shawn Mendes to the stage."
Mendes hit the stage, guitar in hand, to assist JT with "What Goes Around…Comes Around," slowing down the already-downtempo tune for an particularly dramatic, gospel-like tackle the FutureSex/LoveSounds single. The "In My Blood" singer took over the second verse, completely matching Timberlake's pleading vocals.
The duo ended the tune with a line from Timberlake's Chris Stapleton collaboration "Say Something," and as Mendes exited the stage, the band picked up with the Man of the Woods standout.
Timberlake carried out a full set to open day 2 at Las Vegas' T-Mobile Arena, kicking issues off with the pumping beat of "Filthy" and leaving the group dancing with "Can't Stop the Feeling!," and a pack of hits in between. Find his full set listing under:
