Greatest Musical Entertainers of All Time

41 Justin Timberlake Justin Timberlake

This may seem out of left field, but he is the 2nd best solo stage entertainer of all time only behind Elvis. Best male singer of his generation. He does not make sudden changes in his dancing stances like Usher & Chris Brown, BUT he moves much more smoothly than they do. Also can beatbox, play piano, guitar, and drums. He's a lot like the great Fred Astaire (if you don't know who he is, just look him up) and definitely alludes to him in some of his music videos. In many ways, JT has superseded Fred in every area except dancing since Fred is arguably the best dancer of all-time.

I can't with his ego, he isn't as great as usher and even chris brown, a newcomer, is better at him in dancing and singing
