Justin Timberlake Shows Off Some Truly Embarrassing ‘Beat Ya Feet’ Dance Moves (And Twitter Has Thoughts)

Justin Timberlake was once known for his smooth dance moves in his “SexyBack” days. Now, the former boy band heartthrob is a 41-year-old father of two, and, well, he’s getting a little rusty. Nowhere was this more apparent than last weekend at the Water music festival in Washington, D.C.

The NSYNC alum got caught on camera attempting the Beat Ya Feet dance, a pattern of fast and fancy footwork that has roots in D.C. going back more than 20 years. It didn’t help that he was wearing a classic old-man uniform of a button-down shirt and khakis.

Twitter did not have flattering things to say about J.T.’s moves.

“JT did not just say ‘beat your feet’ and proceed to river dance & skip. Boy if you don’t get your ass off the stage,” one disapproving commenter said.

“Justin Timberlake said ‘DC beat your feet’ and proceeded to do the hokey pokey,” another observed.

“america tried to ruin Janet Jackson for this man,” someone else shamed.

“Justin Timberlake’ dancing at #SITW is a cross between a black uncle at a cookout and Irish river dancing,” another user opined, adding, “and no I won’t be explaining this any further”

We don’t know what we just saw, but we know we never want to see it ever again. If that offends Timberlake or any of his stans, well, cry us a river.
