Timberlake to perform at 2018 Super Bowl

Along with Pepsi, we're excited to have Justin Timberlake'.

Timberlake, a 10-time Grammy victor as well as an Emmy-winning actor and producer, had been in talks to be the headlining act of the halftime show, one of the premier entertainment events in USA sports.

Superstar Justin Timberlake confirmed with a video on social media today he will perform the half-time show at Super Bowl LII.

Super Bowl LII is set to air live on NBC on February 4, 2018, from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Jackson and Timberlake performed the smash hit Rock Your Body, but as he sang the lyric, "I'll have you naked by the end of this song", he pulled at a part of Jackson's costume, exposing her right breast, which was covered only by a silver star. That appearance, however, was quickly eclipsed by the notorious episode three years later, in which he tore off co-star Janet Jackson's top, briefly revealing a bejeweled nipple.

The incident, broadcast live to almost 90 million viewers, garnered CBS a $500,000 fine from the FCC (which was later thrown out by The Supreme Court). Timberlake joins other recent headliners Coldplay, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and Bruno Mars.

As for what he hoped to achieve with his halftime show, Timberlake said it would be a success if it "feels like it unifies".

I DO have the time.

And with rumours Janet Jackson had been banned from performing, the National Football League has come forward to squash them.
