There was no hologram, the images and sounds of Prince singing the song with Timberlake made it into something of a disembodied duet. The Prince moment of the set was accompanied with images from the singer's legendary 2007 Super Bowl halftime show, with television graphics adding swathes of purple and the singer's famous glyph symbol over the arena. "Put two fingers in the air for Prince tonight," Timberlake shouted to the crowd.
The pop star followed with "I Don't Want to Lose You Now" and the on field performance of "Can't Stop The Feeling" before culminating in a classic Super Bowl finale of confetti with Timberlake in the crowd taking selfies.
The most surprising aspect of the show was the lack of surprises. Other than the Prince moment, there were no big-name special guests or cameo appearances. Read morehere.
No cause of death has yet been revealed. Edwards joined the Temptations in 1968 after original member, David Ruffin, was fired from the group. The singer appeared on such timeless Temptations' classics as "Papa Was A Rolling Stone," "Ball Of Confusion" and "I Can't Get Next To You."
Edwards remained with the Temptations until 1977, returning to the fold for 1980 album, The Temptations, which featured the hit single "Power." Read morehere.
Bruno and Cardi's chemistry is impossible to ignore and their fans want more, more, more. So last week, Bruno (whose album swept the major categories at this year's GRAMMYs) floated an idea: He and Cardi should hit the road together and hours later announced the trek.
"What if I told you I wanna do one more U.S tour so we could celebrate 24k Magic together one last time….." he tweeted, before adding: "Annndddd…what if I told u imma bring my lil sis @iamcardib on tour so we can really turn your city upside down! Make this finale a party!!"
Cardi responded to Bruno's proposal: "'MhhhhhhmmmThat sounds like a great idea @brunomars?" Read morehere.
"Pray For Me" starts with a murky electronic beat and minor key keyboards, which are belied by The Weeknd's euphoric vocals. About a minute and a half into the song Lamar steps up with an energetic, impassioned verse and the track becomes more confrontational.
"I fight pain and hurricanes, today I wept/ I'm trying to fight back tears flat on my doorstep/ Life in living Hell, puddles of blood on the streets/ shooters on Capitol Building, government ain't a relief." Listen to "Pray for Me"here.
In the pre-chorus, Iggy sings, "My heart beats for you only/ Wonder if you even know me?/ Countin' down every moment that I waited for ya, waited for ya/ Wonder if you even notice/ Baby I been feeling hopeless/ Easy to lose focus, but I'll wait for ya."
Quavo's heavily Auto-Tuned chorus is simple, but it's the centerpiece of the song, and is bound to become a sing-along for fans: "I've been looking for a savior/ I've been looking for a savior/ I've been looking for a real one to hold onto/ I've been looking for a savior." Check out lyric videohere.
The diverse and wide-ranging lineup includes LANCO, Judah & The Lion, Fetty Wap, Brothers Osborne, Kyle, Quinn XCII, LANY, Chelsea Cutler, Ernest K. and Muscadine Bloodline.
Sam Hunt will headline both nights. The singer says he wants the fest to reflect the true spirit of its host city. "The sense of community in Nashville helps give it the character and personality that makes me proud to be a part of it," Hunt said in a press statement. "I wanted to create an experience at The Nashional that celebrates music, community, and everything they mean to each other and this city." Watch a trailer for the festivalhere.
The SNL alum pounded a beer to kick things off, then he served the singer 'The Simon Cowell," which contained hot sauce, vodka and bitters — reflecting her relationship with the American Idol judge.
Meyers also fixed the "Grammy" which included brandy and Werther's original candy. He joked that it was to honor his 2016 Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word album (for Yes Please), not the multiple GRAMMY awards Clarkson has racked up.
Then, the two traded places and Clarkson started serving Meyers drinks. 'The Blake Shelton" included bourbon, whiskey, Southern Comfort and B-A-N-A-N-A-S, in honor of Gwen Stefani.
Later, the pair went shot for shot, and it was clear that the alcohol was taking effect. Meyers gave Clarkson the cognitive test that President Donald Trump took and the two celebrities took shots between answers.
Meyers also confessed his love for 'Since You've Been Gone" and proceeded to serenade Kelly with the hit tune. Watch the hijinkshere.
