Justin Timberlake to play Super Bowl Halftime Show, addresses “wardrobe malfunction”

Justin Timberlake

Justin Timberlake will play the 2018 Super Bowl Halftime Show. He revealed the news in a video that he made with his pal Jimmy Fallon, which you can watch below.

Justin performed at the Halftime Show in 2001 as a member of *NSYNC and in 2004 as a solo artist. 2004 was the year of Janet Jackson’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction” involving Justin, and Billboard points out that Justin addressed the controversy surrounding that in an interview with Football Night in America host Mike Tirico. When asked how he reacted to being asked to return to the Super Bowl stage after that incident, Justin replied, “Immediately, I was excited. It’s a huge moment so I was very excited.” When asked if the NFL asked for any assurance that nothing like that would happen in 2018, Justin said, “That won’t happen this time. There was a little bit of that. But… no, Mike, that’s not going to happen.”

JT’s latest album is 2013’s highly ambitious The 20/20 Experience, and last year he scored a No. 1 hit with “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” from the Trolls soundtrack.

Super Bowl LII happens February 4, 2018 at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
