Justin Timberlake Shuts Down Jay-Z Stage Collaboration Rumors at Super Bowl LII Press Conference

Instead of bringing special guests like Jay-Z or Janet Jackson, Justin says that he will bring his own band, the Tennessee Kids, to the stage.

AceShowbiz - Ahead of his much-anticipated halftime performance at Super Bowl LII, %cJustin Timberlake% held a press conference on Thursday, February 1. During the press conference, Justin addressed many rumors surrounding his upcoming performance, including %cJanet Jackson% reunion, %cNSYNC% reunion and collaboration with %cJay-Z%.

When asked if he would bring a special guest to the stage, Justin immediately answered, "No." He then explained that he had "a ton of grand ideas about special guests. There's a whole list. I think Vegas has a lot of odds on it, from NSYNC to Jay to %cChris Stapleton% to Janet."

Instead, his own band, the Tennessee Kid, will accompany him at the show. "They're my special guests and I'm excited this year to rock the stage. It's going to be a lot of fun," he continued, adding that he would do "a few things with this halftime show they've never quite done before."

"I always like to push, to be able to do something like that. It's a moment where you have the opportunity to bring so many people together through what I think is the greatest art form, which I think is music," he said. "That has been sort of the ethos and inspiration behind putting the set list together and managing how the visuals would all sort of come together."

Even though the 37-year-old singer didn't want to share many details of his upcoming show, he revealed that he would perform his Oscar-nominated track "Can't Stop the Feeling!". "That's all I'm giving away," he jokingly warned the reporters. "I'm not giving away anything else, so don't even try it."

Justin went on revealing his bromance with %cTom Brady% and how he didn't want his 2-year-old Silas to be a football player. "Right now we're working on our manners. That's big deal in our house. One thing at a time!" he remarked. "My main objective is he become a great person."

Justin will hit the stage at the Super Bowl LII haltime show on February 4, just two days after the release of his latest album "Man of the Woods".
