Justin Timberlake, Tori Amos, Sting, Alicia Keys, & More Do Songwriting Roundtable

Every year, trade publication The Hollywood Reporter sets up roundtables for groups of famous people (and Oscar hopefuls) in an effort to curry favor with Academy Awards voters. This year, they organized their first-ever Songwriter Roundtable with artists who have songs attached to big movies this year: Justin Timberlake (Trolls), Tori Amos (Audre & Daisy), Sting (Jim: The James Foley Story), Pharrell (Hidden Figures), Alicia Keys (Queen Of Katwe), and John Legend (La La Land) all participated, and they had a wide-ranging discussion that took place the day before the election, which means that anxieties about our current political climate were on everyone’s mind. You can read their full discussion here or watch segments about each individual songwriter below.
