I instead of performing with a digitally edited clip of Prince, Timberlake projected real images of the late star who performed “I would die 4 U” when he sang and played piano. Udenfor stod Minneapolis op som en hyldest til prins, hvis hjemby var Minnesota-byen.
“It’s a moment for me if I’m honest because he’s always been the highlight of musicality for me. And when we decided it was serendipity and synergy that we would be in Minneapolis and you know he’s such a især hvad han er over hele verden, i only felt i would do something for this by and something for him who just wanted to be the ultimate tribute to what I consider the time of music] by musicians, “Timberlake told Jimmy Fallon på I aften viser efter spillet.

Timberlake var sikker på at understrege, at Prinsens optagelser var ægte og ikke doktreret. “Jeg mener, du er nødt til at forstå: Vi fik de faktiske reelle vokalstammer fra ‘Jeg ville dø 4 U.’ The actual recording! And then we got unclear recordings of ham performance of it in Lilla regn. In one way or another, in that way, by Prince-probably Prince looking down at us – it is synchronized. It was like this crazy serendipitous moment, “he said.
“I would just take the opportunity to do something special for this city, but mostly for everything for my favorite musician all the time.”
