Who should join Justin Timberlake on the Super Bowl stage?

Justin Timberlake is a pop superstar on his own, but imagine your surprise when you’re watching the Super Bowl and an impromptu *NSYNC reunion unfolds right in front of your eyes.

Okay, we all know that’s not going to happen come Sunday, Feb. 4 (or so former band member Joey Fatone wants us to believe), but there’s still a big possibility Timberlake’s set involves a super surprise.

We’re holding out hope that the third time the “Man of the Woods” artist hits that Super Bowl stage will be even more memorable than his last two performances — 2001’s halftime mashup with Britney Spears, Aerosmith, Mary J. Blige and Nelly and 2004’s controversial Janet Jackson stint.

Super Bowl LII will air live on NBC from the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Oh, the history ... not to mention two of the most iconic voices of late-'90s pop belong to these two. The former Mickey Mouse Club members would serve as a replacement reunion of sorts if we can't have *NSYNC.

Justin Timberlake gets a do-over, so why doesn't Janet Jackson? Bringing the "Rhythm Nation" singer out as a surprise would easily serve as redemption for the 2004 debacle.

These two have worked together on nearly a dozen tracks, from *NSYNC's "Girlfriend" to "I'm Lovin' It" and "Last Night." They performed side by side during the 2013 BET Awards and it was pure magic, so we encourage them to do so again.

Justin Timberlake has worked with Timbaland on three of his solo albums, "FutureSex/LoveSounds," "The 20/20 Experience: Part 1" and "The 20/20 Experience: Part 2." Plus, the first track of his new album, titled "Filthy," was coproduced by Timbaland. Since the artist is gearing up to perform the song live at the stadium (we expect), there's no reason to not have Timbaland join.

Alicia Keys teamed up with Justin Timberlake for his latest album and the Super Bowl seems like the perfect time to drop their new track. Plus, they could give us a little 2009 throwback and perform "How Come You Don't Call Me."

Country and pop? Yes. Grammy winner Chris Stapleton teamed up with Justin Timberlake for the artist's latest album, releasing "Say Something" this month.
