The incident became known as "Boobgate"(or to others, "Nipplegate") and after 14 years, people still aren't happy with Timberlake. Timberlake was Jackson's special guest during her performance at that year's game and ripped off a piece of her clothing, revealing her nipple. The last time the group had reunited was back in 2013 when Timberlake received the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Video Music Awards.
It was rumoured that Timberlake could collaborate with Janet Jackson to recreate his first Super Bowl show back in 2004. Sheila Escovedo, Prince's former tourmate and one-time fiancée who performs under the name Shelia E., also weighed in and tweeted Saturday that a holographic Prince would go against the singer's wishes. Like all performers before him, Timberlake was tight-lipped about what we might see at halftime of Super Bowl LII.
In a 1998 Guitar World interview, Prince dubbed the idea of performing with an artist when they're already dead thanks to technology "demonic".
Janet Jackson might've confirmed she's not performing at the Super Bowl tonight, but she's still managing to upstage Justin Timberlake anyway. But speculation and negative reaction about the image of Prince himself turning up in hologram form immediately ran rampant on the internet.
"Family, I spoke w/Justin 2nite and he shared heartfelt words of respect for Prince & the Purple fans".
At least two dead, 50 injured in US train crash
The injured have been transported to local hospitals, and officials confirm everyone has been removed from the trains. The President tweeted: "My thoughts and prayers are with all the victims of this morning's train collision in SC ".
Timberlake released his latest album, "Man of the Woods", earlier this week so the singer will likely perform newly-released singles from that project.
"I look 4wrd 2 seeing what I'm sure is going 2 be a spectacular halftime show".
If you're trying to catch the whole Super Bowl game or just the highly-anticipated halftime show, here are a few different ways you can watch the game live.
During Thursday's halftime show press conference, Timberlake also ruled out any chance of an NSYNC reunion.
M.I.A.'s responded to the claim and described the National Football League as bullies looking to "make an example" of her for "daring to challenge the National Football League".
