Justin Timberlake's 2018 Super Bowl halftime performance was anything but "filthy." The 37-year-old singer kept it PG on Sunday, when he took the stage to perform a handful of throwback hits, a few songs from his latest album "Man of the Woods," and even paid tribute to Prince with a cover of "I Will Die 4 U."

It's gonna go by quick.

Super Bowl Halftime Show Behind the Scenes

Timberlake's set began in an underground portion of U.S. Bank Stadium that was constructed to resemble a club filled with lasers and dancers. He then emerged from a staircase and went up into the stadium and performed a dance-filled set that included "Sexyback" and "Cry Me A River," and "Rock Your Body." 

 

There were a few key moment's of Timberlake's performance that had people talking: his outfit, his dancing, his selfie with a young fan in the stands, and his tribute to Prince. 

 

Before ending his set, the "Mirrors" singer took 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 behind him.
