Justin Timberlake to headline Super Bowl 2018

14 years after THAT controversial performance with Janet Jackson.

The pop star will be back at the US football extravaganza more than a decade after accidentally exposed her nipple onstage and famously coined the phrase "wardrobe malfunction".

The 36-year-old singer will take to the stage at the American football event on February 4 to headline the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

It will mark his third Super Bowl performance, meaning he will clock up more appearances at the National Football League (NFL) showpiece than any other individual entertainer.

Justin confirmed his performance at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota on his Twitter account via a short clip alongside talk show host Jimmy Fallon.

In the skit, Justin asks Jimmy if he has the time and he replies with the same question to which the 'Can't Stop the Feeling' hitmaker says:
"I do have the time."

Jimmy then says: "You do half time?"

Justin replied: "I do half time."

The pair repeated the same questions and answers a few times before an excited Jimmy asked: "You're doing the Halftime Show at the Super
Bowl?"

He captioned the clip: "I DO have the time. Half the vtime...#PepsiHalftime #SBLII @Pepsi @NFL @JimmyFallon @FallonTonight."

Justin's last Super Bowl performance was a controversial one in 2004 when he ripped off part of Janet Jackson's outfit, exposing her breast.

This news comes following months of speculation that the SexyBack star - who has two-year-old son Silas with his wife Jessica Biel - was wanted by the NFL to perform at the event.

Super Bowl LII will take place on February 4 in Minneapolis.
