Incredible.

that is the only word I could express after watching 10-time Grammy winner Justin Timberlake take the stage to perform the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show on Sunday.

Between the slugfest of the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles, Timberlake took the stage in a semi-camouflage threats designed by Stella McCartney.

Timberlake kicked off the party in a club singing his recent hit single “Filthy” while a sea of laser lights dazzled brightly behind him. Dancing up a staircase to make his way to the field, he transitioned to his hit “Rock Your Body.” Shortly afterwards, Timberlake had the entire audience of more than 60,000 fans clapping their hands as he performed his song “SexyBack” on a platform in the middle of the field.

He then asked the audience how they were feeling before he started to sing his next hit “My Love” and “Cry Me a River.” Then all the lights in U.S. Bank Stadium went black.

A marching band joined Timberlake as he performed an orchestral version of “Suit & Tie.” Timberlake called out to the audience asking them to get their cell phones out and light up Minneapolis before singing his ballad “Until the End of Time” at the piano.

After this song came the most anticipated moment of the night, Timberlake paid tribute to Prince in his hometown of Minneapolis. He sang along to Prince’s “I Would Die 4 U” as a large projection screen featured images of the late icon artist. The cutting to an aerial shot, Minneapolis lit it in purple to shape Prince’s symbol.

Next, Timberlake returned to perform his own hits including “Mirrors” and “Can’t Stop the Feeling!”

While performing “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” Timberlake made his way into the stands to share high fives and take super bowl selfies with fans. Confetti then began to rain down on the fans and the field as the Pepsi Super Bowl LII Halftime Show concluded.

Overall, Justin Timberlake put on an amazing show and he definitely got all the fans in attendance at the stadium and fans watching at home to get up, clap and dance all around!
