Justin Timberlake to Headline Super Bowl Halftime

Justin Timberlake will be the Super Bowl Halftime act for the big game taking place in Minneapolis on February 4, it was announced on NBC's "Sunday Night Football". Timberlake was most recently nominated for an Academy Award® for the song "CAN'T STOP THE FEELING!" from the film Trolls for which he won his 10th Grammy.

Timberlake performed at Super Bowl XXVIII in Houston in 2004, when he infamously pulled part of Janet Jackson's costume off, revealing her breast on national television and causing a major controversy. He has also won four Emmys for his appearances on "Saturday Night Live.' Timberlake is a co-star of the upcoming film Wonder Wheel, which opens later this year".

During an interview broadcast at halftime of NBC's "Sunday Night Football", Timberlake laughed off questions about a repeat of the infamous moment, which drew CBS a $550,000 fine from the Federal Communications Commission that was later overturned. He said the best Super Bowl performances have spoken to the mood of the nation.

In 2017, Lady Gaga performed during the game's halftime show.

The Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show is the most-watched musical event of the year.

It's unclear whether Timberlake will perform the halftime show alone or, as at recent Super Bowls, he would be joined by special guests.

This year's performance is sponsored by Pepsi, and boasts the largest single audience for a musical event every year. And Timberlake yells, "I'm doing halftime!"
