Super Bowl halftime show 2018 Live Stream, Super Bowl 52 between the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles might be the main event, but the halftime show is as much a part of the spectacle as the actual game. This year’s show will be headlined by Justin Timberlake, making his third appearance in the Super Bowl.
Time: Approximately 8:30 p.m. ET
Location: U.S. Bank Stadium
Reports circulated beforehand that Timberlake’s show would feature a hologram of Prince, who famously played the Super Bowl in 2007.
However, a quick backlash ensued, many fans expressing dismay that the deceased singer and guitarist’s image would be used.
One of those was, Sheila E, who served as Prince’s drummer on multiple occasions. “Prince told me don’t ever let anyone do a hologram of me,” she wrote. “Not cool if this happens!”
Following that Tweet, the musician apparently spoke to Timberlake, who clarified that the Prince hologram would not be used during the half-time show.
“Family, I spoke with Justin tonight and he shared heartfelt words of respect for Prince and the Purple fans,” she wrote. “I look forward to seeing what I’m sure is going to be a spectacular halftime show. There is no hologram.”
Who is performing in the half-time show?
Justin Timberlake will headline Super Bowl LII. It will be his third time performing on the Super Bowl halftime stage, giving him the distinction of making the most appearances by an individual entertainer. He previously performed at Super Bowls XXXV (N’Sync) and XXXVIII (solo).
The 10-time Grammy winner’s last Super Bowl appearance came in 2004, when he infamously pulled part of Janet Jackson’s costume off (a ‘wardrobe malfunction), revealing her breast on national television and causing a major controversy.
