Justin Timberlake would say yes to "SNL"; new tracks from Weezy and Yeezy; Oscars Best Original Song shortlist not so short
- A few months ago we wished that Justin Timberlake would get back to making music. Because there's no reason he needs to be doing voices in "Yogi Bear" movies. If he would simply stick to appearing on "Saturday Night Live" maybe we'd feel differently. Timberlake told "Extra" that he would "absolutely" sign a contract with the show if producer Lorne Michaels offered. We put the chances of this happening about on par with an 'NSync, reunion, so whoever that new prettyboy cast member is can probably rest safely for now.
- The shortlist for Best Original Song at the Oscars is out and it's not very short. More than 40 songs "made the cut," including tracks by Beck, Pharrell, Jonsi and Metric. Next month there will be a long and convoluted process to determine the five final nominees to ensure Randy Newman wins.
