  • The singer's set started out in an underground portion of U.S. Bank Stadium made to look like a club filled with lasers and dancers

Justin Timberlake paid tribute to Prince during Sunday's Super Bowl halftime performance with a cover of "I Will Die 4 U."

The singer's set started out in an underground portion of U.S. Bank Stadium made to look like a club filled with lasers and dancers. Timberlake emerged from into the stadium and performed a dance-filled set that included "Sexyback" and "Rock Your Body."

The singer kept on his feet before taking a seat at a white piano to perform "I Will Die 4 U" with footage of Prince projected onto a long screen in the middle of the stadium. Before the game, there were rumors that Timberlake would use a hologram of Prince during his performance, drawing criticism from fans and those who knew the late superstar.

And just in case you were wondering: it wasn't gum Pink took out of her mouth before singing the national anthem before the big game. Pink tweets it was a throat lozenge. She had been battling the flu the past few days.
