This isn’t his first time at bat…wrong game, but you get the point
Timberlake first performed at Super Bowl XXXV in 2001 while part of *NSYNC, performing with other stars like Steven Tyler and Britney Spears.
He later appeared as one of the stars at Super Bowl XXXVIII show, where he infamously performed alongside Janet Jackson. during the performance of “Rock Your Body,” Timberlake ripped off Jackson’s breastplate, causing a legal battle involving Jackson, the FCC, CBS and Viacom.
Timberlake is following Lady Gaga, who performed at halftime last year, and Coldplay, who performed the year before.
What can we expect at the show?
The exact line-up isn’t confirmed, but Timberlake already has a lot of new music to promote. He’s just released his new single, “Filthy” and has an upcoming third solo-album, Man of the Woods, due just a few days before the halftime show, according to Time. Still, we could probably expect some classics. “Can’t Stop the Feeling?” isn’t going away anytime soon. Maybe he’ll pull a Beyoncé and invite some of his old bandmates to be part of the show?
That said, we know at least one song he won’t be the one performing! P!nk will perform the “Star Spangled Banner” on Feb. 4 at the U.S Bank Stadium.
