Justin Timberlake Confirmed for 2018 Super Bowl Halftime Show
Published Oct 23, 2017Fresh off his unexpected Foo Fighters collaboration, Justin Timberlake has been announced as the headlining act at next year's Super Bowl halftime show.
Following in the footsteps of Lady Gaga and the Coldplay spotlight-stealing Beyoncé, the former *NSYNC-er will treat football fans to a performance during the NFL championship game. The event is set to take place on February 4 in Minneapolis, MN, at the U.S. Bank Stadium.
Timberlake confirmed the news in a video featuring his onscreen bestie Jimmy Fallon. Watch it below.
Of course, it's not Timberlake's first time on the Super Bowl stage. Back in 2004, he helped deliver one of the most unintentionally memorable shows in the league's history when he was involved in a "wardrobe malfunction" exposing Janet Jackson's nipple for all the world to see.
He also performed at the Super Bowl with his old boy band *NSYNC in 2001.
The pop star also recently streamed his way into homes all over the world in the 2016 Jonathan Demme-directed Netflix concert doc Justin Timberlake + the Tennessee Kids.
