It is good to be Justin Timberlake right now. Not only did he release his new album Man of the Woods (his first in nearly five years), but he got to celebrate big with an amazing performance during the Super Bowl LII Halftime Show at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
During a behind-the-scenes video, at a press conference before the big game, Justin teased his performance saying, "Without giving too much away, we're doing a few things they've never quite done before." And he was not lying!
Intro'd by his pal Jimmy Fallon sitting on top of the Pepsi Super Bowl sign, halftime kicked off with Justin performing on the inside of the stadium on a small stage, before dancing his way into the stadium onto another stage where he brought us back to his Justified days with "Rock Your Body."
From there, he walked through the crowd onto yet another stage where he performed another JT favorite, "Señiorita," then joining a full band to sing "SexyBack." And "SexyBack" indeed, because Justin then whipped off his jacket and performed "My Love" and had the entire stadium jumping along with him and his band. The FOMO has never been more real. But, before his performance, he did say, "I like to make dance music. So I hope everyone's dancing." Mission accomplished.
