Justin Timberlake will be bringing The 20/20 Experience World Tour to Orlando.

The tour is a promotion for his third and fourth albums, “The 20/20 Experience” and “The 20/20 Experience – 2 of 2.”

Timberlake got his start with an appearance on television show “Star Search” at age 11. His career took off in 1993 when he was  placed on “The Mickey Mouse Club” cast in 1993. He co-starred on the show with now top celebrities including Brittney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Ryan Gosling.

After a couple years on the Mickey Mouse Club, Timberlake was recruited for pop group ‘N Sync. He became the lead singer and fans quickly took notice of the group’s talents. ‘N Sync made their mark in the music world with numerous hits and became the third-best selling boy band in history, but eventually the group split.
