  • Justin Timberlake Paid Tribute to Prince During His Super Bowl Performance

Justin Timberlake's reported plans to use a Prince hologram during his Super Bowl halftime performance did not go over well with fans and friends of the late pop icon.

The hotly rumoured Prince tribute was less than a minute-long, and saw Justin sing along to the Prince song I Would Die 4 U, as footage of Prince played behind him.

When it was announced that Justin Timberlake would be the Super Bowl LII halftime performer, the hashtag #JusticeForJanet started to emerge.

Soon after, purple lights were seen scattered across the roofs of buildings surrounding the stadium, and an image of his signature symbol lit up throughout the same block.

UPDATE (2/4, 12:30 a.m. EST): After reports about the hologram began circulating, Prince's longtime collaborator and associate Shiela E. spoke out to say that Prince would not have supported the idea.

Days before Timberlake's record third trip to the stage at the Super Bowl, the hashtags #JanetJacksonAppreciationDay and #JusticeforJanet were trending on Twitter. He took the halftime stage for the first time along side his band *NSYNC in 2001 and later with Jackson three years later.


Janet Jackson might've confirmed she's not performing at the Super Bowl tonight, but she's still managing to upstage Justin Timberlake anyway. That whole virtual reality thing.it really is demonic.

"I don't know that a lot of people know that", he said.

Jackson was slammed by conservative viewers and critics at the time, whilst Timberlake was fortunate enough to escape from the controversy relatively unscathed.

Jackson said in a statement issued on Saturday, "To put to rest any speculation or rumors as to whether I will be performing at the Super Bowl tomorrow; I will not". "I look forward to seeing what I'm sure is going to be a spectacular halftime show".

After all, though 14 years have passed, it's hard to forget the 2004 halftime show when the two performed together and Timberlake exposed Jackson's breast, a cultural incident that Jackson took much of the fall for.
