Academy Awards Groove of the Weekend/Justin Timberlake/”Can’t Stop the Feeling”

No/all shade to the Academy Awards, but anyone remember when the Best Original Song category was locked and loaded with Billboard chart busting singles and tracks everybody and the radio knew? 

This year certainly holds a Yankee candle to that hypothesis as the nominees include two from La La Land–“Audition (The Fools Who Dream)” and “City of Stars,” as well as “The Empty Chair” from Jim:The Janes Foley Story and “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana. 

While each of these tracks hold it down in their accompanying films, let’s face it–“You Must Love Me,” “My Heart Will Go On,” “Colors of the Wind” and “You’ll Be in My Heart” they certainly…ain’t. 

However, when it comes to Justin Timberlake‘s Billboard Hot 100 owning “Can’t Stop the Feeling” from Trolls, well, here we finally have an Oscar nominated groove that everyone and their grandmother knows as JT’s bubbly flow still hasn’t stopped taking over the radio since its release last fall. 

And plus…who doesn’t love Mr. Timberlake? While La La Land is no doubt expected to sweep the Oscars tomorrow night, “Can’t Stop the Feeling” is not only a Best Original Song that should win…but it deserves to. 

With that being said, let’s all just dance, dance, dance, dance, dance and tune into the Jimmy Kimmel hosted 89th Annual Academy Awards tomorrow night. 


This year’s grooves sound like….
