Justin Timberlake Apologizes For Failed Funny Viral Dance Video

Too late to apologize? Justin TimberlakeHe’s admitted his dance moves aren’t always good after he went viral for a recent stage bust.

“DC, I want to apologize for two reasons: here and here,” the 41-year-old musician said in an Instagram Story video on Wednesday, June 22, zooming in on his feet. “I had a long talk with both of them, individually, and said, ‘Don’t ever do that to me again.'”

The “SexyBack” singer quipped, “Maybe it was the khaki. It was a real khaki vibe.”

He ended by swearing that he would correct his mistake, saying, “I’m going to make this right. I’m going to focus on these two guys here and get them right. Love you all.”

The “Man of the Woods” crooner caught the eye on Saturday, June 18, when a clip of him dancing in Washington, DC during his performance of Something in the Water Festival exploded on the internet.

In the video, Timberlake yelled to the crowd, “DC, beat ya feet!” before breaking into the area’s eponymous dance style. The step sequence, which became popular in the 1990s and 2000s, usually involves a series of three-step moves and a bounce.

However, instead of showing off his smooth steps, the former Mouseketeer was ridiculed for his quirky routine that looked a lot like the hokey pokey.

Another Twitter fan quipped, “Justin Timberlake looks like a vice principal trying to dance in the hallway with his students talm’bout [sic] ‘what do you know about this.’”

The “Rock Your Body” singer set the tone on Wednesday by sharing a couple of TikTok videos of Timberlake’s fans imitating him and his failed routine.

“Nailed it,” the Tennessee native wrote alongside a clip from TikToker @corey_obrien replicating the viral moment — the fan even wore similar khakis and shoes.

The former ‘NSync member’ performance took place over Father’s Day weekend, which Timberlake marked with a sweet shout-out to his and wife Jessica Bielhis two children.

“My two favorite tunes ❤️❤️,” the singer gushed “Bye Bye Bye” on Instagram on Sunday, June 19, sharing glimpses of Silas, 7, and Phineas, 23 months, playing the piano. “Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!!!”

A month earlier, 40-year-old Biel revealed that their two boys were quickly following in their father’s footsteps.

The Sinner actress explained during a performance in May on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that Silas is also interested in “orchestras and symphonies and film scores” with a bit of EDM. She noted that her oldest child “wants to be a DJ.”

Phineas, for his part, “is the one who has the guitar backwards, jams, drums … he won’t put these instruments down,” according to the 7th heaven alum. She added: “I see musical skills in both of them, but they are different.”
