Why Justin Timberlake Insisted on the Prince Tribute at the Super Bowl

Justin Timberlake electrified the world with Sunday’s Super Bowl Halftime Show at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

The performance included a tribute to Prince, who was raised mere miles away and JT explained to Jimmy Fallon how important it was for him to make it happen.

"He’s always been the pinnacle of musicianship and he’s such a special thing to Minneapolis, so I wanted to do something special for this city," he says. "We got his actual vocal parts from 'I Would Die 4 U' and the actual recording."

Adding: "He’s my favorite musician of all time."
