Grammy Award-winning pop singer Justin Timberlake will headline the Super Bowl halftime show in February, 14 years after a "wardrobe malfunction" overshadowed his last gig at the championship game, the NFL said on Sunday.

This will mark Timberlake's third time on the halftime stage, giving the Can't Stop The Feeling singer the distinction of having the most appearances by an individual entertainer, the National Football League said in a statement.

The 10-times Grammy winner last performed at the Super Bowl in 2004 when he infamously ripped off part of Janet Jackson's garment during their halftime show in Houston.

The Super Bowl is the most-watched event on US television, drawing more than 100 million viewers. Previous halftime headliners include Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Beyonce, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Madonna.
