The NFL announced that the 10-time Grammy winner is their featured performer at the 2018 Super Bowl LII on February 4. It will be the third time for Justin Timberlake to perform at the Super Bowl. 

In 2001 at Super Bowl 35, Timberlake performed with ‘N Sync during the halftime show, along with Aerosmith, Britney Spears, Nelly and Mary J. Blige. But it was his notorious appearance at Super Bowl 38 in 2004 with Janet Jackson which became the most re-watched halftime performance of all time.

As he and Janet ended their performance, Justin ripped off a part of Janet’s costume exposing her breast. Cameras quickly panned to avoid the scene but it was too late. After the ensuing public outrage, Timberlake apologized and said it was accidental.
