Olly Murs covers Justin Timberlake during Radio 1’s Live Lounge

During his Radio 1 Live Lounge session today, Olly Murs decided to take on one of the biggest songs of the summer  – Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’.

His choice of cover was rather apt considering that when Timberlake released the track, a lot of people actually thought it was Olly’s new song.

As usually, the Essex lad delivered a fun performance, and added his cheeky charm to the hit track. Olly also mixed in a bit of old school Timberlake, by adding a snippet of ‘Rock Your Body’. We’re pretty sure JT would have been bopping along if he was listening.

Take a listen here (around the 2hr 11 mark).

Of course, Olly also had the chance to perform a stripped back version of his latest track ‘You Don’t Know Love’, which is currently climbing the charts following his recent performance on Strictly Come Dancing.

Listen to ‘You Don’t Know Love’ here (around the 2hr 2 mark).

Olly Murs is currently preparing for the release of his next album, 24 HRS, which is due to drop on November 11. He will also be touring the UK next year. Pre-sale tickets are currently on sale, with many venues selling out, however, general sale starts on Friday at 9:30am. Be quick, as demand is set to be high!
