In 2013, when Beyoncé took the stage at the Super Bowl halftime show, she did the impossible: she revived Destiny’s Child. I’m not lying when I say I was in tears, because in that moment, all my ’90s kid hopes and dreams had come true. Now, Justin Timberlake might just do the same.
At the moment, Justin is finalizing a deal to headline the Super Bowl LII halftime show. If it goes through, he’s going to bring sexy back on live TV, but that’s not the only thing he might bring back. Rumor has it that NSYNC might make a comeback.
Be still my beating heart.
While nothing is official, the boyband’s Joey Fatone told TMZ Sports that nothing is official, but he’s totally not opposed to the idea. If Justin Timberlake does the show and if he asks the other bandmates, Fatone is sure it’s something fans could look forward to in the future.
Of course, Justin hasn’t actually come out and said anything, and neither has the NFL, so as far as we know, Fatone may just want this to happen as badly as the rest of us. But now that the idea is out there, maybe they’ll consider it?
There are also rumors that JAY-Z could grace the stage if Justin performs (“Suit and Tie”, anyone?, but there’s been no formal confirmation that Justin would perform with anyone else yet. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
