Super Bowl 2018: Justin Timberlake's Half-time Show to Feature Prince's Hologram

in life •  2 years ago  (edited)

Since the 52nd Super Bowl will be held in Minnesota, it comes as no surprise the halftime show will pay homage to Prince, a Minnesota native.

Last Thursday, Justin TImberlake, who is scheduled to perform on the halftime show, called Prince the "the greatest all-around musician" in pop culture, hinting at a possible Prince recreation during his performance on Sunday. At the late legend's old home, Paisley Park, Timberlake hosted his own album-listening party.

According to a TMZ report, Timberlake will make Prince's influence -- and perhaps even some of the icon's songs -- a huge part of his performance during halftime of Sunday's Super Bowl LII (52nd) in Minneapolis.

It was also suggested that, as part of a "sneak peak" of the 10-time Grammy Award-winning singer's show, that influence will come in the form of a life-sized hologram.

Our sources ... reveal there are no 'NSYNC or Janet Jackson cameos planned ... so anyone hoping for a reunion or redemption ... you can pretty much abandon all hope.

However, we're told Justin does have one pretty cool trick up his sleeve -- a hologram to honor ... wait for it ... Prince, in his hometown.

Timberlake incorporating Prince into his highly anticipated show shouldn't be a shocker, but this is Prince's hologram we are talking about. Timberlake's use of Virtual Reality technology to literally bring the local legend onto the stage is simply another level of boldness.

Just imagine the Michael Jackson projection we got at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards, this time add the U.S. Bank Stadium and 66,000 people.

Seriously, if all of that doesn't convince you to tune in, then what will?

show shouldn't be a shocker,

Great haha

Thank you!

I thought the halftime show was lackluster. What a disappointment from someone who used to be such a great performer! Loved the throwback to all my favorite songs but I thought he looked like he was struggling the whole time. What did you think after the anticipated hologram that turned out to be a blah projection?

I agree with you...it was kind of a let-down. I was expecting more from Timberlake but sadly he did not deliver. :(

He should just retired. Too old to be the pop star he used to be, and given whats been going on in the media, a woman performer would have made more sense.

Yeah I agree! Would love to see Bruno Mars perform again though - he's one hell of a live performer!

Ive never had the chance. I got too see Michael Jackson when I was a child - I dont think anything will ever top that!

WOW! You're really lucky haha my mom is a HUGE fan of Michael Jackson too!

I feel like we share a lot of common interests, so I followed you - would love if we could connect on Steemit and support each other on this journey!

Im in! I thought I had hit the follow button before, but I guess my clicking finger was a little too excited and hit it twice :) MJ will always be one of the best musicians and performers of our time, regardless of any allegation. I really hate to think of him that way!

Have you joined any steem groups to help grow within steemit? Ive seen a few out there (Team Australia is one) and it seems like with a whole group of people supporting each other it really propels their accounts faster than doing it individually. Let me know if it sounds interesting to you! Been trying to get some like-minded people together to try it out :)

WOW, that sounds like a brilliant idea! May I know which groups are you currently in and how do I join these groups? Are they held on Discord or Steemit.chat or something like that?

Once again, it's awesome to connect with you! Here's to many collaboration opportunities!

Controversial. Waiting for 1/2 time right now. Promoted post!

Can't wait for the half-time show!
