According to reports, Justin Timberlake’s Super Bowl LII halftime show will feature a Prince hologram to honor the late singer in his hometown.
Update: Prince’s family shut it down. [Read]
Sources inside rehearsal tell us JT did 4 run-throughs, just on Thursday. We’re told one was a dress rehearsal that was taped for emergency … just in case anything happens to JT and he can’t perform.
This video is from one of his Thursday sessions, and one thing’s for sure … there’s gonna be a TON of fireworks inside the U.S. Bank Stadium.
Our sources also reveal there are no ‘NSYNC or Janet Jackson cameos planned … so anyone hoping for a reunion or redemption … you can pretty much abandon all hope.
HOWEVER, we’re told Justin does have one pretty cool trick up his sleeve — a hologram to honor … wait for it … Prince, in his hometown.
Of course, plans and strategies can change … but an overhaul at this point seems unlikely.
