Justin Timberlake colored his Super Bowl LII halftime performance purple on Sunday with the help of Prince.
After delivering an upbeat montage of his hits, Timberlake surprised the audience with a special appearance by the late artist via a projected screen. Playing the piano along to a medley of his own song “End of Time” and Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U,” the projected video clip showed the late Minneapolis native in concert, appearing as if he was singing a duet with Timberlake.
To pay further homage to Prince, the camera spanned to the stadium’s surrounding area, which was lit up in purple. After the bit, Timberlake asked everyone to raise two fingers in the air to honor the singer.
Timberlake’s controversy-free halftime performance marked 13 years since his previous appearance alongside Janet Jackson.
