Justin Timberlake

Did anyone else see Justin Timberlake on SNL this week? I was actually sortof impressed with his first number. Amanda said he cites guys like Michael Jackson and Donny Hathaway (whose album Live is the single best live R&B album ever recorded, period) as his influences and it shows.. The second song was a much more stale and boring dance-pop type thing. I find myself wondering if his album is more like the former or the latter (I can only assume the latter). Anyone know?
