Justin Timberlake 'Is Finalizing' Deal to Perform at Super Bowl Halftime Show

Justin Timberlakeis getting back in the game. Thirteen years after his controversial Super Bowl halftime performance with Janet Jackson birthed the term “nipplegate” the 10-time Grammy winner — who’s currently working on his fifth solo album — has been asked to take the stage at the NFL championship in Minneapolis on February 4.

An insider reveals the 36-year-old “is finalizing” his deal, and though reports suggested the dad of 2-year-old son Silas (with wife Jessica Biel) might perform with onetime collaborator Jay-Z, the insider says, “as of right now, it will just be Justin — no surprise performers.”

Timberlake threw it back to his ’NSync days at the 2017 Super Bowl, when he appeared in a surprise Bai Antioxidant Infusions water commercial alongside Christopher Walken. In the ad, the legendary actor, 74, did a dramatic reading of the pop band’s hit “Bye Bye Bye.”

Timberlake and the official Twitter account for ‘NSync shared the commercial afterward. “Here goes… #BaiBaiBai. With the one and only #ChristopherWalken. @DrinkBai #SB51,” Timberlake tweeted. The band’s page added: “Bye Bye = Bai Bai.”

Timberlake’s 2004 performance with Jackson not only caused a stir, but changed the rules of the annual broadcasted sporting event as well. Following the shocking end to their performance of Timberlake’s hit “Rock Your Body” – in which he pulled part of Jackson’s costume off, briefly revealing her pierced nipple and right breast – the Federal Communications Commission cracked down on new policies and a five-second broadcast delay during live performances was implemented.
