"And all the power goes out," Timberlake joked. He even lifted the pedestal the button was on, looking for what had gone wrong.

Eventually, the technical crew fixed the glitch and the Eye was lit up in full rainbow Trolls glory.

Timberlake and Kendrick were so adorably awkward, it was totally worth the wait.
