Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake made history 5 years ago during the infamous Super Bowl halftime show. That stunned look on JT's face? He had just exposed the world to Michael Jackson's little sister's boob. The FCC got 540,000 complaints about the “wardrobe malfunction.â€?

THE REACH: Jackson and "surprise" guest Timberlake performed a mix of Jackson's songs "All for You" and "Rhythm Nation" and Timberlake's "Rock Your Body." The real surprise came later, when he wracked her body.

THE GRAB: The match between New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers was nothing compared to the way JT attacked Miss Jackson like a rabid bobcat.

EXPOSED: Was it planned or an accident? Where did the star shaped pasty come from? How f-ed were they? And who really shot JFK? These are questions we may never know the answers to.
THE COVERUP: Feeling the cool air, Janet quickly covered up, and Justin... well, lets just say he probably had to change his pants. The two parted ways, but there have been some eerie parallels since...

ALBUMS: Both Janet (Ms. Jackson is you're nasty) and JT were banned from the 2004 Grammy’s, unless they agreed to apologize for the Super Bowl event. JT did and won two Grammy’s for his record "Justified." Fitting.

Janet didn't apologize. But she fared pretty well, too. Her record "Damita Jo," which showed a vulnerable side to the pop star, was released in 2004 and debuted at the #2 spot on the Billboard 200.
SNL: Timberlake became a staple in SNL’s Digital Shorts with Andy Samberg. His most famous turn in “Dick in a Boxâ€? was followed up by a cameo in “Jizz in My Pants.â€? In November 2008, JT appeared on SNL again in a skecth with Beyonce.
Jackson got her SNL time in, too. In April 2004, Janet hosted SNL, which gave her a public forum to mock the malfunction and get some laughs. Here she is at the after party with Jermaine Dupri.

ACTING: JT started focusing on acting in 2004. He appeared in "Alpha Dog," "Black Snake Moan," and did a voiceover in "Shrek the Third."

Jackson also graced the silver screen. She starred in Tyler Perry’s "Why Did I Get Married?" She won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for her role in 2008.
TOURS: Timberlake brought sexy back with the release of his second solo album, FutureSex/LoveSounds, and later went on the FutureSex/LoveShow Tour.

Janet also graced the stage during her Rock Witchu Tour.
SPLITSVILLE: Love was no longer in the air. Timberlake and girlfriend Cameron Diaz issued a statement that the two had split in January of 2007.

Janet also had love on the rocks. She and her record company, Island Def Jam, had a mutual split. The rumor is that the artist was disappointed with promotion and sales of her album "Discipline."
COLLABORATION: All's well that ends well when singers make new friends. In 2007, Timberlake collaborated with Madonna on “4 Minutes,â€? a duet which was released in 2008.

Jackson's ninth studio album, "20 YO," had her sharing the mic, too. "Call on Me," the album's lead single, was a duet with rapper Nelly.
