Justin Timberlake has revealed he will perform at the Super Bowl Half Time show and bring his legendary pop hits and dance moves to the prestigious NFL event on February 4 2018 in Minnestoa.
Justin shared the news in a hilarious comedy sketch with his pal Jimmy Fallon which he shared on Instagram, and he sported his best english accent when he asked The Tonight Show host: “Excuse me Sir, do you have the time?”Jimmy, 43, plays along with the gag, and responds: “I was going to ask you, sir, if you have the time?”

The pair get even more and more excited, asking each other for “the time” before Jimmy shouts: “You have time to do the Super Bowl?”
And Justin screams back: “I do have the time!” before they jump up and down together like excited school children.
Justin captioned the video: “I DO have the time. Half the time… #PepsiHalftime #SBLII @Pepsi @NFL @JimmyFallon @FallonTonight”.

He shared the clip on Twitter and wrote alongside a string of raised hands emojis: “It’s official!!!”
Justin – who first performed the Half Time show with N’Sync in 2001 – will take to the stage a year after Lady Gaga famously plunged from the roof of the stadium into the sports arena during her headline slot. In previous years, Coldplay, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Madonna have taken to the stage.
Few other details have been revealed about his performance, such as who he will ask to share the stage with him, as it is common for solo artists to invite fellow chart toppers to duet on a song.

However, he may buck tradition after his disaster performance with Janet Jackson during the Half Time show in 2004, which concluded with the hunk ripping her costume to reveal her right boob that was left bare except for a nipple shield.
The star promised fans that the iconic moment “won’t happen this time” during an interview with NBC’s Sunday Night Football, and said he just wants people to enjoy his performance and be “shaking their booty”.
He added: “What I really want to do is take the opportunity to put together a performance that feels like it unifies. I feel like that would be the ultimate accomplishment, and then the icing on the cake is at some point within that 12 minutes that everybody is shaking their booty.”
