Watch: Justin Timberlake's Entire Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show

A lot of fans waited anxiously for Justin Timberlake's halftime show performance. Although he was excited about the game, we're pretty sure we heard BOB mention a song or two that he hoped would come up during the event.

The big moment kicked off with an intro from Timberlake's good friend, Late Night host Jimmy Fallon and then quickly went into his hits "SexyBack", "Can't Stop the Feeling", "Cry Me a River" plus a new song called "Filthy".

The biggest set piece was a giant, projected image of Prince with whom Justin sang a duet of "I Would Die 4 You". This was a let down for those who expected a hologram of the late singer. Those rumors, however, were quickly shut down by Sheila E. ahead of the performance. She caught up with ET’s Kevin Frazier at the game on Sunday night and said, “The hologram was weird, and Prince did tell me [to] make sure nobody ever does a hologram of me. ‘If you’re still here, make sure nobody does a hologram.’ He thought it was very demonic and that’s his spiritual beliefs.”

It was pretty obvious that Timberlake was playing to the home crowd since the Super Bowl was in Prince's hometown of Minneapolis. At one point, they showed an aerial view of the area around U.S. Bank Stadium bathed in purple light, which formed the classic Prince symbol.
