As Timberlake slowed down the tempo for a soulful cover of 'I Would Die 4 U,' footage of Purple Rain-era Prince shot up toward the roof of the new US Bank Stadium in a smoky haze, closing with a silhouette of The Purple One with his guitar. AFP


While many Super Bowl performers go heavy on pyrotechnics, Timberlake instead showed off his dancing skills, opening the show in a nightclub-like maze of lasers as he sang his recent single 'Filthy.' AFP


Pink overcame the flu to give an emotionally rousing performance powering through the Star Spangled Banner. AFP
