(Newser) – The NFL has yet to announce the headliner of the 2018 Super Bowl Halftime show, but all signs point to a returning act: Justin Timberlake. Sources tell Page Six and Variety that Timberlake has agreed to return to the Super Bowl stage in February, following the release of a rumored new album. However, the NFL said Thursday that "no decisions have been made," per EW.

The league also previously said Timberlake was banned after that wardrobe malfunction during his appearance with Janet Jackson in 2004. If not Timberlake, then who? Jay-Z is also reportedly an option—and could appear with Timberlake, sources say—as well as Pink, Justin Bieber, Rihanna, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, and the Foo Fighters, per Variety.
