Will the Queen of the Rhythm NationJanet Jackson, be the special guest Justin Timberlake needs to make his Super Bowl performance epic?

Will JT publicly apologize for leaving Janet hanging during their now infamous 2004 nipple gate performance?

ET reports that, according to a source close to the living icon, Janet would join JT if he asks. There has not been an official invitation.

“The door is wide open,” the source says. “If Justin or his team did reach out, Janet would perform with him again in a minute.”

We are still salty with JT for not stepping up and giving JJ the support she deserved when she was damn near blacklisted from TV after he exposed her nipple during that notorious performance. Timberlake didn’t suffer half the scrutiny and backlash Janet did, and then he was asked back! But now, it looks as if Janet might be open to recreating the moment that shocked the world.

NFL representatives also reaffirmed that Jackson is not banned from the broadcast. “There’s no ban,” a league spokesperson told ET on Monday. “We are not going to comment on any speculation regarding potential guests. There may be no guests. Along with Pepsi, we’re excited to have Justin Timberlake.”

We’d actually prefer a Janet set minus JT, but we’ll wait it out and see what happens.
