Justin Timberlake did not disappoint fans at (and viewers of) Super Bowl 52 in Minneapolis. As the Eagles and the Patriots battled it out on the field (with an Eagles lead of 22 - 12), JT swooped in to give us a halftime performance that was sans Janet Jackson and wardrobe malfunctions like that of his 2004 performance (#neverforget), and instead focused on his hits and newest release of Man of the Woods.

Opening with "Filthy," Timberlake made his way through the crowd before heading to the stage to perform "Rock Your Body," "Señorita," "SexyBack," "My Love," and "Cry Me a River" (all while dancing, of course).

He then hit the field for even *more* dancing before breaking out the big guns with "Suit and Tie" and "Until the End of Time." He then paid tribute to Prince "I Would Die 4 U" with a projection of the Minneapolis-born legend before returning to his hits, "Mirrors" and "Can't Stop the Feeling!"
