Besides being excited by the opportunity to see Justin Timberlake take over the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday, we all secretly hoped that he could invite his buddies from NSYNC for a short “Bye Bye Bye” and “This I Promise You“ medley. Unfortunately, JT doesn’t share our awesome ideas.
During press conference on Thursday Timberlake was asked by one reporter about the chances for us to see “little NSYNC reunion”. The 37-year old singer gave an answer no one wanted to hear.
“Well … NO” he said smiling.
Ok, if he isn’t bringing NSYNC, will he at least invite Chris Stapleton or maybe return the favor and do a duet with Janet Jackson? The answer is no, and then another no!
“To be honest, I had a ton of grand ideas about special guests,” Timberlake told reporters. “We talked about it a lot. There was a whole list…I think Vegas has a lot of odds on it, I heard, from ‘N Sync to Jay to Chris Stapleton to Janet. But this year, I’m just excited, my band, the Tennessee Kids, they’re my special guests and I’m excited this year to rock the stage. So it’s gonna be a lot of fun.”
If you want it to sting a bit more, you can check out his responses in the video clip below.

Although there will be no flashy superstar guests, we have no doubt that Justin Timberlake will deliver one awesome Super Bowl halftime show performance. Also, his brand new album Man of the Woods is scheduled for release today, and we already had a chance to hear three singles from it. ‘Filthy’, ‘Supplies’ and ‘Say Something’ were all warmly received by the fans and critics, so expectations are high. Knowing the performer Justin is, he will respond in the proper fashion.
