SexyBack on Beale

Justin Timberlake rocked Beale Street this morning, courtesy of Good Morning America’s fall concert series. Dressed in his trademark suit vest and slim-fitting pants, the former boy-bander gave an energetic performance that included “SexyBack,” his current hit single, and “Rock Your Body” from Justified.

The crowd, which consisted of truant coeds, young families, and downtown employees began arriving before 5 a.m. Justin and his band went on around 7:30.

The only sour note? The chorus of boos that greeted Memphis mayor Willie Herenton when he took to the stage to announce “Justin Timberlake Day.” — Mary Cashiola
