Are you ready for some football? Or at least the Halftime show! In just a few short weeks Super Bowl LII will take place and as we reported to you a few weeks ago, Justin Timberlake will be the main performer during the always anticipated Pepsi Halftime show!
This isn’t Justin’s first time performing during the halftime show, in fact, it is his 3rd time. That’s right, his 3rd time! Justin first performed in 2001 with his former boy band that he was in ‘NSync and the second was during the unforgettable halftime show with Janet Jackson in 2004. We all remember Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction and the accidental nip slip that left America in shock!
When Justin was asked about the 2004 Halftime show he said that he has made peace with the incident and that he and Janet Jackson have remained friends and that you can’t change what happened you just move forward and learn from it.
This time Justin says that he will be performing solo.
In a behind the scenes clip on E! Online Justin said, “I am getting the opportunity to have the stage to myself,” he said in the behind-the-scenes clip. “I really am looking at it as my first time.”
The video goes on to show us the work he’s putting into the show, like working out and constantly meeting with his team to discuss their options.
More than anything, J.T. just wants to give the people 13 minutes of pure fun.
“I believe it’s also the place where there’s nothing wrong with giving people what they want,” he explained. “My biggest challenge is what is my fingerprint on that show come February 4th. It’s going to go by quick.”
One thing we can count on for sure? A surprise.
“A bit of unknown is what I’m always enthralled by,” Timberlake smiled.
Super Bowl LII will air on Sunday, Feb. 4 from the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minn.
Make sure you tune in during the Pepsi Halftime show because I am sure it will be another unforgettable performance!
From jumping through the roof of the stadium, to spectacular firework shows, riding on horses, being suspended in air, and even the accidental nip slip. Every year we think we have seen it all and just experienced the best halftime show ever, then the next year comes and the performance outshines the previous years
In just a few short weeks the Super Bowl LII people will be tuning in on t.v. screen across America and we are finally learning all the details for who the top performers will be! This year’s entertainment is going to be on FIRE and we can not wait to watch these amazing performances!
One of the greatest accomplishments for a performer is to be asked to sing during the biggest sporting event of the year. There is always a lot of criticism after the big announcements are made but this year they nailed it with who they have asked to perform! I mean, the commercials are great and the game can be fun/intense to watch but it all comes down to the entertainment! This year’s picks are going to be hard to beat in the years to come! What and who should you be expecting this year?
According to People Magazine: Super Bowl LII is getting a touch of Pink! And oh boy does she have something insane in store for millions who will be watching.
The 38-year-old singer has been tapped to perform the national anthem at the biggest football game of the year, taking place on Feb. 4 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the NFL announced Monday.
Pink joins the ranks of Luke Bryan, Lady Gaga, Idina Menzel, Kelly Clarkson and Alicia Keys, who have performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” ahead of kick-off in recent years.
The pop star hinted at the big news on Twitter earlier this week, teasing that 2018 was going to be a banner year for her.
“I’m really looking forward to 2018,” she wrote. “I’m really excited about the Grammys. Tour. Some other stuff that’s a secret still and I can’t wait til it’s not a secret.”
I’m really looking forward to 2018. I’m really excited about the Grammy’s. Tour. Some other stuff that’s a secret still and I can’t wait ’til it’s not a secret. I’m also excited for Trump to lose his twitter password and also I’m excited that I have dope hair.
Justin Timberlake confirmed in October that he will headline the 2018 Super Bowl Pepsi Halftime show, recruiting pal Jimmy Fallon for a video skit sharing the big announcement.
Timberlake asked in a faux-accent, “Excuse me sir, do you have the time?”
“I was going to ask you, sir, if you have the time,” retorted Fallon. Timberlake responded, “I do have the time.” The silly exchange continued, with Fallon asking, “You do have time?”
Timberlake said, “I do have time.” Eventually, the word games ended with Fallon excitedly prodding his friend, “You’re doing the halftime show at the Super Bowl?”
With that, the “Can’t Stop the Feeling” singer gave a sly look at the camera.
The performance will come 14 years after Timberlake’s controversial appearance in the 2004 halftime show, when he removed a piece of headliner Janet Jackson’s ensemble during the “Rock Your Body” lyrics “gonna have you naked by the end of this song,” revealing Jackson’s right pierced nipple as about 90 million viewers watched live on television across the globe. He’ll release his upcoming album, Man of the Woods, (featuring new single “Filthy”) two days before the performance.
Watching Justin Timberlake and Pink will be a Super Bowl that we will never forget! We might not always remember the NFL team that played the previous year but we never forget the memorable entertainment!
