Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick

Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick took the stage at Cannes Film Festival to perform ‘True Colors’ on Wednesday.

The Trolls co-star gave a very moving acoustic version of Cyndi Lauper’s Hit song ‘True Colors’. It was not only a surprising performance from both the stars, but they completely nailed the song.

It has been a while since Justin Timberlake has taken on stage to perform a song. So before the start of the song he took the mic to say this “We are Anna and Garfunkel, OK, we are going to give this a go, but you guys have to be nice.”

Anna Kendrick, on the other hand, added “We’re just friends here right? This isn’t like a big deal; we’re just hanging out in our living room.”
