American singer Justin Timberlake battled against flu to keep his voice safe for a performance at the Grammy Awards on Sunday.

The ‘Cry Me a River’ singer was scheduled to introduce the premiere of his new video ‘What Comes Around’ as part of MTV’s pre-show coverage, but he had to conduct his presentation speech from a room backstage after picking up a cold.

His illness also made him miss music mogul Clive Davis’ pre-Grammys party on Saturday night.

However, Timberlake’s vocal rest did work in his favour, as his live performance during the ceremony went flawless.

He also filmed his own performance with a hand-held camera, besides making the 2007 Grammy Awards unforgettable for pop hopeful Robyn Troup, who won the My Grammy Moment prize and a chance to sing with Timberlake.

Fans voted for the 18-year-old Texan to perform ‘Ain't No Sunshine and Timberlake's ‘My Love’ hit with the pop superstar and rapper T.I.
