Justin Timberlake to perform at Super Bowl weekend concert
By Billboard

It's only natural that after releasing a hit single and announcing a new album, Justin Timberlake will make his return to the live stage. The singer, whose song "Suit & Tie" is expected to hit the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week, will perform his first solo concert in several years at a New Orleans charity concert during Super Bowl weekend.

Timberlake will be the man of the hour at the DIRECTV Super Saturday Night event, being held Feb. 2 at DTV SuperFan stadium and hosted by Mark Cuban. Questlove of the Roots is DJ'ing before and after Timberlake's set

The event will benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children and is tied in with the 7th Annual Celebrity Beach Bowl, which, as the name suggests, is a football game between celebrities. This year, the roster includes Snoop Dogg, Chace Crawford of "Gossip Girl" and Olympian Lolo Jones.

The next day, Super Bowl XLVII starts across town at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

On Jan. 13, Timberlake released "Suit & Tie" and announced his third solo album, "The 20/20 Experience." It's his first release since 2006's blockbuster "FutureSex/LoveSounds." In his announcement, he hinted at more news to come. "That's all I'm giving you for now... I know, I know! Again, with the teasing!!!"

Timberlake wrapped his last solo tour, the FutureSex/LoveShow, in December 2007, though he has hardly shunned the stage. In September of 2011, he played a handful of his own hits, including "Cry Me a River" and "Like I Love You," midway through a concert by the band FreeSol.

I hope this means other people can see this concert and not just the people attending the concert.

Wonder who he'll find to undress this time.

Why does Justine get to perform again and Janet Jackson is banned from performing at the Super Bowl?

 

The last time they performed together, the "Wardrobe Malfunction" was strictly blamed on her and no one blamed him at all.   She took all the flack and he got none of it.  Is this a woman hating thing or what?  I hope she gets a chance to perform again and no one shouldn't bring up the past just as no has ever brought it up for Justine.   By the way, who was fined for this "Wardrobe Malfunction?
