The list includes Luke Bryan,  Lady Gaga, Idina Menzel, Renée Fleming, Alicia Keys, Billy Joel, Diana Ross, Neil Diamond, Whitney Houston, Harry Connick, Jr., Garth Brooks, Natalie Cole, Vanessa Williams, Luther Vandross, Cher, Faith Hill, Mariah Carey, Dixie Chicks, Beyoncé Knowles, Christina Aguilera and more.

As previously announced, Justin Timberlake will headline the Pepsi Sugar Super Bowl LII Halftime Show. ET spoke with Pink in October, when interestingly enough, she talked about opening up for *N'SYNC at the start of her career, then later, for Timberlake as a solo artist. 

"I would go to Europe and play arenas and have this big fancy tour, and then I would come back and play like the 9:30 club in D.C. to 200 people," she recalled. "And it's this roller coaster, and I remember joking with Justin Timberlake -- my first tour ever in '99 was opening for *N'SYNC. And then 10 years later -- not 10 years, but it's 2004 -- I was opening for Justin. And the first day I saw him I was like, 'I've come far!'"

Meanwhile, during an interview with NBC Sunday Night Football in October, Timberlake addressed the now infamous "wardrobe malfunction" that occurred.during his performance with Janet Jackson in 2004.

"Yeah, that won't happen this time," he said.
