Justin Timberlake is finalizing a deal to perform at the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show.

Variety reports the Grammy-winning artist is still interested in performing after Jay-Z, who was being considered to join Timberlake, turned down the offer.

Timberlake’s last Super Bowl performance changed the operation of live TV. After Timberlake accidentally exposed Janet Jackson’s breast while performing “Rock Your Body” in 2004, the FCC enforced strict live TV policies.

Not everyone is happy about Timberlake’s possible return to the big game and noted that Jackson’s treatment post-“wardrobe malfunction” was much different.

Super Bowl LII will take place at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Feb. 3 on NBC.
