Feb 2 2014 - 9:28am

Can you believe it's been 12 years since that infamous nipple slip during Justin Timberlake [1] and Janet Jackson [2]'s Super Bowl XXXVIII halftime show? Well, we can hardly either! That's why we're taking it all the way back to 2004 and reliving the moment as it happened, picture by picture. Janet kicked off the performance, singing "Rhythm Nation" solo, before Justin joined her on stage with "Rock Your Body." The gasps came during the grand finale, when Justin ripped off part of Janet's top, revealing her right breast. When the racy moment was met with outrage by fans and the media, apologies and excuses were made, and the whole thing was deemed a "wardrobe malfunction." It looked pretty planned to us, but see for yourself when you check out our play-by-play of the controversial Super Bowl moment, which isn't the only sexy thing that's happened [3] over the years.
