Justin Timberlake Sang With a Giant Prince Projection During His Super Bowl Halftime Show

Some fans were alarmed by news that Justin Timberlake might be performing alongside a Prince hologram during Sunday’s Super Bowl halftime show, news Timberlake reportedly denied over the weekend. In the end, JT sang a duet with a massive projection of the late artist, providing musical and vocal accompaniment to previously captured video of Prince. No matter how you felt about the performance itself, the projection did not have the uncanny verisimilitude of an actual hologram (see also: Tupac performing Coachella in 2012) and for that, perhaps we can all be thankful.
