IT’S OFFICIAL: JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE TO PERFORM AT SUPER BOWL HALFTIME SHOW – (10/23/2017)

Justin Timberlake has been announced as the headlining act of the Super Bowl 52 Halftime Show, more than a decade after his controversial performance with Janet Jackson in 2004.

Sponsored by Pepsi, the February 2018 halftime show will be headlined by the 36-year-old singer and actor, marking a milestone for his career with the NFL. The show will mark Timberlake’s third time on the stage, having previously appeared in 2002 and 2004. This will give him the distinction of having the most appearances by an individual entertainer.

As previously reported, it’s been 14 years since the former N*Sync artist’s infamous performance with Janet Jackson in which she accidentally exposed her bare breast on live TV. The moment, which became known as Jackson’s “Nipplegate,” prompted outrage from viewers and led to a delay in all live broadcasts.

His appearance was announced last night before Sunday Night Football. The game takes place on February 18, 2018.

P!NK, HARRY STYLES AND MACKLEMORE SHINE AT ‘WE CAN SURVIVE’ BENEFIT CONCERT – (10/23/2017)

P!nk, Harry Styles and Macklemore lead a star-studded lineup at CBS Radio’s fifth annual We Can Survive breast cancer benefit concert Saturday night at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. The concert’s aim is to raise awareness for breast cancer during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here are some of the highlights from Saturday’s show:

Khalid opened the night sporting a bright pink hoodie and matching sneakers and performed a set that included his hit single, “Location,” and “8Teen,” with a few slow tunes that had fans swaying along.

Country singer Sam Hunt kept the crowd pumped up, beginning his turn with the songs “House Party” and “Body Like a Back Road.” Mellowing the mood a bit, the singer then performed a few slower numbers that included “Take Your Time” and “Break Up in a Small Town.”

Kesha then took the stage, bringing a feel of positivity and empowerment to the crowd. The fans cheered as she performed a string of hits that included “Woman” and “Take it Off,” before teaming up with Macklemore to perform their single “Good Old Days.” Kesha dedicated her final song, “Prayer,” to the mother of one of her fans, a survivor of breast cancer. Fans gave a standing ovation in response.

Lorde danced around in a long white dress, performing her latest single “Green Light.” Her set also included crowd favorites such as “Homemade Dynamite” and “Royals.”

Sam Smith’s performance included hits “Stay With Me” and “I’m Not the Only One.” Couples embraced as he serenaded them with “Like I Can” and set closer “Pray.”

Niall Horan, who was introduced to the crowd as the concert’s special guest, was met with overwhelming applause and screams from the audience – many of whom probably weren’t expecting a second One Direction member to be on the stage that night.

Alessia Cara also received a standing ovation for her performance. Cara’s set included Here” and  “Wild Things” before she ended with the uplifting “Scars to Your Beautiful.”

Macklemore’s set ran into technical difficulties with the intro video, but it didn’t stop the rapper from putting on a dynamic performance. Songs like “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us” had the audience jumping, dancing and singing along. Near the end his set, Macklemore told the crowd that that his grandmother, who is a breast cancer survivor, is celebrating her 100th birthday this year.

Former One Direction member Harry Styles performed singles, “Good Girl” and “Kiwi” and threw everything from water bottles to roses into the hyped crowd.

The concert ended with a highly-anticipated performance from P!nk. Wearing all white, began her set with “Get This Party Started,” which instantly created a wave of dancing  in the crowd. The singer also performed some of her newer numbers, including “What About Us,” “Barbies” and “Beautiful Trauma.” P!nk closed the night with the celebratory “Raise Your Glass,” before thanking CBS and blowing fans goodbye kisses.
