Justin Timberlake and JAY-Z are in talks to perform at the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show.

According to Hits Daily Double, Timberlake and JAY-Z could be taking the U.S. Bank Stadium stage in Minneapolis on Feb. 4. The performers are still in discussions and an official confirmation has not been made.

This would be Timberlake’s first time back on the Super Bowl halftime stage since his infamous “wardrobe malfunction” performance with Janet Jackson in 2004. Timberlake ripped away part of Jackson’s costume resulting in her bare nipple being exposed and a fallout of FCC censorship on network TV.

Timberlake and JAY-Z haven’t paired up musically since their singles “Suit & Tie” and “Holy Grail” in 2013.

  • When are we going to get a real band on stage? I already have 0 craps to care about the actual game since my team is 99% likely to be done long before February. I have less than 0 craps to give the past few years because there hasn’t been a cool performer headlining. It’s always some R&B or dancing auto-tune lip-singer every year with a few exceptions as far as I can remember. THERE ARE OTHER GENRES OUT THERE! Someone please call Metallica and get them to play. Godsmack, Disturbed, Alterbridge, Halestorm, Volbeat to name a few more. Anything other than a bunch of wounded ducks bouncing around the stage with some stupid prop shark getting way more attention than it ever should have!
