Big star nearing deal to perform at SuperBowl

Kansas City Chiefs v New England Patriots

One of the biggest questions on everyone's mind come a new season in the National Football League (NFL) is who will be in the SuperBowl when it's all said and done?

Thus far, a lot of favorites have suffered some minor setbacks. Defending SuperBowl champions the New England Patriots were absolutely thrashed by the Kansas City Chiefs in Week One of the season, before picking up their first win over the New Orleans Saints in Week Two. They also nearly suffered a huge upset loss to the Houston Texans, fronted by rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, but were barely able to edge it out with a miraculous throw from Tom Brady to Brandon Cooks for a touchdown.

Over in the NFC, defending conference champs the Atlanta Falcons are the only undefeated team in the conference with a 3-0 record. The Falcons high-powered offense fronted by quarterback Matt Ryan, stud wide receiver Julio Jones, and running back Davonte Freeman are near unstoppable as a unit. 

The aforementioned Kansas City Chiefs are the only undefeated team in the AFC, making the Chiefs and Falcons the current favorites to make it to the big dance come February. While the game itself is the most anticipated part of the SuperBowl event, one thing all casual fans can enjoy is the halftime show.

With legendary performers such as Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, and so many more having taken the stage before, who will be next year's frontman for the big show? 

According to a report from US Magazine, it appears as though Justin Timberlake is finalizing a deal to return to the SuperBowl halftime show stage. His initial performance came alongside Janet Jackson back in 2004 when Jackson's wardrobe malfunctioned and showed off one of her nipples.

The report suggests that Timberlake is finalizing a deal to return to the halftime show and could bring along Jay Z with him:

"An insider reveals the 36-year-old “is finalizing” his deal, and though reports suggested the dad of 2-year-old son Silas (with wife Jessica Biel) might perform with onetime collaborator Jay-Z, the insider says, “as of right now, it will just be Justin — no surprise performers.”

What are your thoughts on Timberlake nearing a deal to perform in the SuperBowl halftime show? Would you like to see Jay Z perform alongside him? Who else would you like to see perform at halftime? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
