Justin Timberlake gave an upbeat performance during the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show in Minneapolis. The singer ran through a medley of his hits, including “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” “Rock Your Body,” “SexyBack,” and “Filthy,” a single from Timberlake’s new album, “Man of the Woods.”

Timberlake’s performance also included a nod to Super Bowl 52’s setting, as he performed “I Would Die 4 U” by the late pop star Prince, a Minneapolis native. Timberlake sat at a piano as a giant projection of Prince played on a screen behind him.

NBC also cut to an exterior shot of U.S. Bank Stadium glowing purple, another nod to Prince.

This marked Timberlake’s first halftime performance since the 2004 Super Bowl, when Timberlake exposed Janet Jackson’s breast during an infamous “wardrobe malfunction.” Patriots fans remember that Super Bowl well, as the Pats beat the Carolina Panthers 32-29 in New England’s second Super Bowl win in franchise history.
