Justin Timberlake halftime: Best anything ever...

Incrediblishus. Love how he avoided, and actually used the crowd segregation issue that plagued prior shows. He used the entire stadium. Prince tribute, perfect. Boy, can he dance! I wasnt sure what was the opener, with the screens, saying "fake" and "real" ill have to find out. The freaking sets and lights were unreal. The laser screen. Stuff ive never seen.

Awesome. Awesome game too

impressive. Loved the nod to Prince. Yes he is very talented. I'm really not watching the game though I did see the Eagles last big play. Impressive, I must say, though my key issue is that I really don't find any of his current music all that memorable.

"fake", etc were part of the lyrics of his first song/rap.

I love love love watching JT perform. Such a natural, But I know he works hard with choreographers, etc. I'm not crazy about all of his music, but so much of it is really great stuff.

His half time show was phenomenal. Favorite moment, before the show when he was told that it was raining and would throughout his show, he replied, "Can you make it rain harder?"

Prince might not have liked it according to comments about the Tupac hologram.
