Justin Timberlake to headline Super Bowl Halftime
Justin Timberlake is bringing sexy back to the Super Bowl. Fourteen years after his infamous performance with Janet Jackson, the “Can't Stop the Feeling” singer will take the halftime show stage February 4, 2018, in Minneapolis.
His appearance was announced Sunday night (October 22) before Sunday Night Football.
In 2004, Timberlake's performance of “Rock Your Body” with Janet Jackson ended with him pulling off part of Jackson's costume, causing an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction. The Federal Communications Commission implemented a five-second delay during live TV performances thereafter.
Timberlake is currently working on his fifth studio album, which reportedly is inspired by his Memphis roots.
Halftime shows are a tradition of American Football shows, and the halftime show of its biggest game, the NFL championship, is one of the most-viewed televised events. The viewership of the glam-glitz affairs in recent years has been well in excess of 100 million.
