Justin Timberlake will perform the Super Bowl LII half time show, it was officially announced Sunday (Oct. 22). Timberlake made the announcement via a video with pal Jimmy Fallon.

Super Bowl LII will take place Feb. 4, 2018, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Tennessee native Timberlake, who has a home just outside of Nashville, previously performed during the Super Bowl in 2001 and in 2004. In 2001, he performed as part of ‘N Sync alongside Aerosmith and Britney Spears in Tampa, Florida. In 2004, the halftime show at Houston, Texas’ Reliant Stadium included Timberlake, Jessica Simpson, P. Diddy, Nelly, Kid Rock, and Janet Jackson. Timberlake’s performance of “Rock Your Body” with Jackson included a controversial incident (later termed a “wardrobe malfunction”), in which Timberlake ripped off a portion of Jackson’s costume.

Earlier this year, Timberlake headlined the third annual Pilgrimage Festival in Franklin, Tennessee, which included a surprise appearance from Chris Stapleton.
