It’s official: Justin Timberlake will perform at the halftime show of Super Bowl LII. Timberlake revealed the news on Sunday in a video posted to his Twitter account alongside Jimmy Fallon. You can see it below.

Timberlake had previously been reported as performing at the show, but the news had not been confirmed and neither Timberlake nor the NFL had commented on the report. Timberlake’s last Super Bowl performance was particularly infamous, as he alongside Janet Jackson during Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004. During the performance, he “accidentally” caused a wardrobe malfunction that caused Jackson’s breast to be exposed. That moment was a lightning rod of controversy and caused a crackdown on content aired on television for quite a while afterward.

Super Bowl LII takes place on February 4th, 2018 and airs on NBC.
