The 52nd annual NFL Super Bowl is one of the biggest events this year, and it only got better with the return of Justin Timberlake – after a 14-year hiatus! 

This year the Philadelphia Eagles took on the New England Patriots in the Patriots’ repeat appearance at the Super Bowl. Patriots were favored to win, but nothing is ever guaranteed.

2018 marks the return of Timberlake to the famous half-time show during the NFL’s cherished final showdown, and having just released an album – he pulled out all the stops. 

The 37-year-old entertainer took to U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota for a performance unlike any other and filled to the brim with a number of hits and fan favorite songs. He kicked off the show with “Filthy” before transitioning into a medley of “Rock Your Body” and “SexyBack.”

Timberlake, surrounded by a marching band clad in tuxedos, then performed “Suit & Tie” from his album “The 20/20 Experience.” He then made his way to a white grand piano for “Until the End of Time” which led to a cover of Minnesota native Prince’s song “I Would Die 4 U” as a projected image of Prince appeared on a purple curtain. 

JT wrapped his halftime performance with “Can’t Stop The Feeling” as the entire crowd danced and sang along. 

True to his word, Timberlake kept the performance intimate but made sure he rocked his performance!
