It's Official! Justin Timberlake WILL Perform at the Super Bowl

After all the rumors and speculation, it has been confirmed. 

Justin Timberlake will perform at the upcoming Super Bowl Halftime Show on February 4, 2018. He made the official announcement via his Twitter account with Jimmy Fallon.



The NFL confirmed the news a few moments later on Sunday.

Justin was previously banned from performing at the Super Bowl after Janet Jackson's exposure "incident" in 2004. Not everyone is happy because he's been essentially given a free pass from the 2004 incident, but Janet hasn't been given the same "pass." Maybe he will bring Janet out as a guest and all will be forgiven for 2004?

The 2018 performance will actually be JT's third time performing at the game. He appeared at Super Bowl XXXV in 2001 with NSYNC.
