LATEST: Britney Spears' former backing singer Kiley Dean's career has been given a boost thanks to the Justin Timberlake and JANET JACKSON SUPER BOWL shocker.

The up-and-coming R+B star was given a last-minute chance to belt out the American National Anthem at yesterday's (08FEB04) PRO-BOWL football game in Hawaii after Timberlake's 'N Sync bandmate Jc Chasez turned down the offer.

Chasez was originally billed to perform at half-time, but his show was axed by football officials, who feared he would further shock and shame them after the embarrassment of Janet Jackson's naked breast.

Furious Chasez announced his decision not to perform the National Anthem last week (ends06FEB04), stating, "I'll sing the National Anthem anytime, anywhere, but not for those NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE."

The Pro-Bowl half-time show featured traditional Hawaiian dancers and drummers.
