Justin Timberlake is less than one day away from his halftime performance return at Super Bowl LII and he’s trying to keep it hush-hush, but cameras are everywhere. He has been practicing a lot this week in U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and it’s been said that he is going to shock the world. Well, while many have wondered what he’ll do, who will be there, and the setlist, some of it happened to leak out after hours of practice.
There has been a lot of controversy as to what may or may not happen during Sunday’s halftime between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots. It’s confirmed that Justin Timberlake is going to lead things, but what’s he going to do? What songs will be in his setlist? Will anyone appear with him on stage?
As reported by People, Timberlake gave away that “Can’t Stop The Feeling” would be one of the songs he’d be singing during halftime. From that point, he said that was the only thing he was “giving away,” and no one could get him to say anything more.
Well, he didn’t need to say anything else as he’s been practicing all week with lots of people around — people who have smartphones and social media accounts and the ability to sell their videos to the highest bidder.
Check out a leaked video of Timberlake rehearsing here.
As can be seen on the video acquired by TMZ, there will be a lot of fireworks involved and he’s planning on doing a tribute to Prince, but the whole idea of a hologram of the late star is a point of major contention.
TMZ has also stated that there are no plans at all for a reunion with Janet Jackson or *NSYNC even though many have hoped for one or the other.
