Justin Timberlake pays tribute to Prince during Super Bowl 52 halftime show

Justin Timberlake paid tribute to Prince during the Super Bowl half-time show by performing a "duet" with the late singer.

So, instead of disrespecting Prince's own feelings, Timberlake instead sat before a giant screen that featured video imagery of Prince's performance, with Timberlake playing backup to his vocals for the iconic number, "I Would Die 4 U".

When it was announced that Justin Timberlake would be the Super Bowl LII halftime performer, the hashtag #JusticeForJanet started to emerge.

A wide shot outside the stadium showed nearby buildings bathed in a purple glow as Prince's iconic symbol lit up the ground around the venue.

Prince himself spoke out vehemently against such technology in a 1998 interview with Guitar World, calling it, "the most demonic thing imaginable".

Others hoped he would perform with Janet Jackson, whom he infamously performed with during the "Nipplegate" performance in 2004. He was joined on stage by his band, the Tennessee Kids. Neither *NSYNC or Janet Jackson are part of the performance, which puts an end to a few rumours.

Not only that, Aamir even went on to challenge his "friends", superstars Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan. The challenge has already been picked up on social media and has become a rage on the Internet in no time.

During the backlash, Prince's longtime drummer and friend Sheila E. got in contact with Timberlake.

National Football League who announced a year ago that Timberlake would be returning to the halftime show, received a heavy backlash from women over its decision. She thanked her fans for their support and added that she is looking forward to "seeing you all very soon".

Timberlake had begun his performance with a rendition of Filthy, before singing a medley of some of his greatest hits, including SexyBack, Senorita and Cry Me A River.

"To be honest, I had a ton of grand ideas about special guests", Timberlake said.

Janet Jackson had already confirmed she would not be making an appearance, 14 years after JT performed with her on stage and proceeded to rip off her bodice, flashing her nipple and effectively ending her career.

Conveniently, Justin also released his fifth studio album Man of the Woods on February 2.
