Justin Timberlake didn’t become one of the most recognizable pop stars on the planet out of dumb luck. Dude knows how to work a crowd and ride the fence. He’s played both Super Bowl XLVIII cities in the past week and smartly rooted for the home team each time.
In the video above, taken from his performance at the Pepsi Center in Denver on Wednesday night, Timberlake name drops Peyton Manning. Did JT actually call the Broncos star QB?…Who cares! But Timberlake knew enough to say he did.
Flashback to last Friday night when Timberlake was at Seattle’s Key Arena just days before the NFC title game. A Seahawks chant? You bet your ass:
All of this football chatter by Timberlake during his shows made us a little curious. While everyone already knows that Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers will play the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show, Timberlake has an odd gap in his tour schedule starting today and concluding Feb. 7.
Will Justin Timberlake have a cameo at Super Bowl XLVIII? Well, last time he was at a Super Bowl it didn’t go so well.
Still, with the opportunity to appear in front of a massive international TV audience at the first “New York” Super Bowl, Timberlake, Jay Z or any mega-star would have to be interested.
