He does “half time!”
Goofing around with pal Jimmy Fallon, Timberlake asked in a faux-accent, “Excuse me sir, do you have the time?”
“I was going to ask you, sir, if you have the time,” retorted Fallon. Timberlake responded, “I do have the time.” The silly exchange continued, with Fallon asking, “You do have time?”
Timberlake said, “I do have time.” Eventually, the word games ended with Fallon excitedly prodding his friend, “You’re doing the halftime show at the Super Bowl?”
With that, the “Can’t Stop the Feeling” singer gave a sly look at the camera.

The performance will come 14 years after Timberlake’s controversial appearance in the 2004 halftime show, when he removed a piece of headliner Janet Jackson’s ensemble during the “Rock Your Body” lyrics “gonna have you naked by the end of this song,” revealing Jackson’s right pierced nipple as about 90 million viewers watched live on television across the globe.
