2018 Super Bowl halftime show and expected start time, TV channel and viewing info: All of the information you need to watch Justin Timberlake’s performance live at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis for Super Bowl 52.
Justin Timberlake is set to return to the Super Bowl stage on Sunday night to perform the halftime show at Super Bowl 52 between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles at U.S. Bank Stadium.
It is the first Super Bowl performance for Timberlake since the infamous “wardrobe malfunction” during his 2004 performance alongside Janet Jackson.
Timberlake is expected to take the stage at approximately 8:30 p.m. ET.
There is no word on what special events Timberlake has planned — a reunion with Janet Jackson is not one of them, however — and he denied an NSYNC reunion.
“To be honest, I had a ton of grand ideas about special guests,” he said during a Super Bowl press conference promoting the performance. “We talked about it a lot. There’s a whole list — I think Vegas has a lot of odds on it, I heard. From *NSYNC to Jay [Z] to Chris Stapleton to Janet, but this year I’m just excited — my band, the Tennessee Kids, I feel like they’re my special guests and I’m excited this year to rock the stage. It’s gonna be a lot of fun.”
There were also some reports that he may have floated the idea of performing with a hologram of music icon Prince, a Minneapolis native. Those reports led to some backlash on social media, so it’s unclear whether there will be a late change of plans.
Timberlake’s newest album, Man of the Woods, released on Friday.
