Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake Super Bowl

Supporters took to Twitter in outrage.

Justin Timberlake has been announced as the headline act for the 2018 Super Bowl half-time show in February.

And while fans of the 'Mirrors' singer are rejoicing at the news, supporters of Janet Jackson have been left reeling.

Timberlake's upcoming performance will mark 14 years since the duo's infamous 'wardrobe malfunction' at the 2004 show, which saw Timberlake expose Jackson's bare chest live on air.

The incident resulted in Janet being heavily fined and blacklisted from the NFL, banning her from any performances in the future.

After former *NSYNC member Timberlake was announced as next year's headliner, users slammed the organisation for their use of 'double standards'.

This will mark Timberlake's third time performing on the Super Bowl Halftime stage, making him the artist with the most appearances by an individual entertainer.

The most-watched musical event of the year, the Super Bowl has played host an esteemed list of halftime acts including Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Prince, Bruno Mars and more.
