Timberlake returning to SB halftime show

Timberlake returning to SB halftime show

"Excuse me sir, do you have the time", Timberlake asks Fallon with an accentuated English accent.

During that show, Timberlake accidentally ripped Jackson's top, which resulted in a wardrobe malfunction that revealed the singer's nipple on television.

Justin Timberlake confirmed that he will headline the Super Bowl LII Pepsi Halftime show next year with a fun video skit on Sunday.

The two riff back and forth, running the words together until Fallon finally asks, "You halftime?" to which Timberlake replies, "I do halftime!"

Super Bowl Halftime acts rarely have anything to do with the host city, but Timberlake does have loose ties to Minnesota via his wife, actress Jessica Biel, who was born in Ely. During a joint rendition of "Rock Your Body", Timberlake reached and pulled off a piece of Jackson's bustier, exposing her bare breast to an audience of millions for 9/16ths of a second. Jackson's career never again rose to the same commercial heights she had achieved before the Super Bowl controversy.

A decade-long legal battle between the Federal Communications Commission, the National Football League and CBS later ensued. The game is set for Sunday, Feb. 4 at Minneapolis' U.S. Bank Stadium.
