— -- The Eurovision Song Contest, Europe's biggest event of the year, got a bit more American in 2016.

Not only was it the first time TV's longest-running international singing competition was aired in the U.S., but Justin Timberlake also performed at the contest that was watched by over 200 million viewers around the world.

Timberlake, 35, along with his band The Tennessee Kids, performed "Rock Your Body" followed by the singer's newest single, "Can't Stop the Feeling," in Stockholm, Sweden.

The song, which will be featured on the soundtrack for Timberlake's new animated film, "Trolls," was co-written and co-produced by Swedish songwriters Max Martin and Shellback.

Timberlake's performance offered a break from the often avant-garde, over-the-top and country-specific performances during Eurovision, which was broadcast live in the U.S. on cable network Logo.

The show also aired live in the 42 countries who competed, along with China, Kazakhstan, Portugal and New Zealand.

Susana Jamaladinova, a 32-year-old trained opera singer from Ukraine, was named this year's winner.

It marked the second time the country took the Eurovision title and because of the win, Ukraine will host the competition next year.
