By many accounts, Justin Timberlake’s Tremendous Bowl Halftime Present was underwhelming, however in accordance with Jimmy Fallon, it was “unbelievable” and “one of the best halftime performances of all time.” Okay, Jimmy.

Fallon had Timberlake on a particular post-Tremendous Bowl episode of his nightly gushfest and requested Timberlake about his controversial resolution to make use of the picture/music of Prince throughout his efficiency. Naturally, this was not framed by Fallon as controversial and even probably so, however “beautiful.”

Stated Timberlake:

After he mentioned this and the viewers cheered, the digital camera reduce to the Roots’ bandleader Questlove, a famous Prince professional, who gave the thumbs up. That was all of the validation Timberlake wanted:

And in addition, I’m not gonna misinform you guys, as a result of Questlove is the encyclopedia on music but in addition, like, the I really feel like a gatekeeper on Prince so like if I obtained the thumbs up from Quest, I’m good.


Okay, Justin.

“It was dope,” mentioned Quest. Okay, Quest.
