Justin Timberlake is on track for a number one hit after his special performance at the Eurovision Song Contest.

The US pop star appeared at the show on Saturday, marking the first time in the competition's 61-year history that a non-contestant global star has performed at Eurovision.

He performed his 2002 smash hit Rock Your Body, before launching into his new single Can't Stop The Feeling, which was made for the soundtrack to kids' movie Trolls.

Can't Stop The Feeling could become his fifth UK number one, according to the Official Charts Company.

He is already at the top of the official singles chart ahead of the charts announcement on Friday, with 6,000 chart sales more than This Is What You Came For by Calvin Harris and Rihanna.

Drake's One Dance, which has dominated the charts and held the number one spot for five weeks, is now down to number three.

In at number four is All For One by the Stone Roses - the band's first new material in over two decades.

The indie band's upbeat comeback single, released last Thursday, precedes a number of live shows this summer.

All For One is the band's first new material since 1995 before their split, and comes five years since they reformed.

The Manchester rockers last appeared in the official singles chart top 40 17 years ago, when a remix of their hit Fools Gold reached number 25.

If they hold steady for the rest of the week, the song could become the band's first top 10 single in nearly 22 years.
