Los Angeles - Justin Timberlake wants to host the Oscars next year.

The Mirrors hitmaker, who has taken the last few months off to bond with his five-month-old son Silas, is reportedly eager to make a splash when he returns to the spotlight and thinks hosting the prestigious awards ceremony on 28 February, 2016 is the perfect platform for him.

A source close to the 34-year-old star, who is married to actress Jessica Biel, said: "Justin is campaigning hard with producers and is billing himself as the total package. He's playing up the fact that he's a singer, dancer and actor. Plus he bridges the gap between old and young."

The former 'N Sync star is confident he will be able to entertain the star-studded audience, as well as millions of viewers worldwide.

The insider told Star magazine: "Justin says he's not scared that so many hosts, like Neil Patrick Harris, ended up bombing.

"Producers are starting to agree that his confidence may just be the magic touch."

But he may have some stiff competition, as Neil, who hosted the ceremony earlier this year, recently admitted he is eager to do it again.

Justin has hosted SNL a couple of times has also appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon numerous times he definitely has the experience.
