LOS ANGELES • Justin Timberlake will headline the half-time show at Super Bowl 52 in February, the 10-time Grammy winner and the National Football League announced on Sunday.

It will be the third time that the singer has performed in the half-time show of the league's championship spectacular.

He also thrilled the crowds at Super Bowl 35 as a member of 'NSync and at Super Bowl 28 in 2004 with Janet Jackson - when an infamous "wardrobe malfunction" caused one of her breasts to be exposed.

Timberlake posted a video clip on Twitter announcing that he would be at the Super Bowl on Feb 4 at the US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

His third outing will give him the most appearances at the event by an individual entertainer.

Lady Gaga performed at last year's Super Bowl, traditionally the most-watched television event of the year in the United States.

The half-time show has become a spectacle in its own right. Last year's edition was the most-watched musical event of all-time across all platforms and the most-watched Super Bowl half-time performance in history through broadcast and digital channels, reaching more than 150 million people, the league said.

Other past performers include Coldplay, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Madonna, The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, The Rolling Stones and U2.
