The Hawthorne High School Clarion welcomes you to the Pepsi Super Bowl LII halftime show review!   

Super Bowl LII had an outstanding halftime performance by the one and only Justin Timberlake. For his breathtaking performance, he sang a mashup of his hit songs: “Filthy” off of his brand new album, “Man of the Woods”, followed by, “Rock Your Body”, “Senorita”, “SexyBack”, “My Love”, “Cry Me A River”, “Suit & Tie”, “Mirrors”, and finally, “Can’t Stop the Feeling.”

During Justin’s performance of “Can’t Stop The Feeling” and running into the crowd, he stopped at a 13-year-old boy named Ryan McKenna, and continued to sing and dance with him. McKenna seemed to struggle with his phone while taking a picture with Justin, which most people found humorous. Shortly after, Ryan McKenna became a viral sensation for this and has already been invited to be on The Ellen Show.

Also, Timberlake did a special performance in honor of Prince, singing and playing the piano to one of his songs, “I Would Die 4 U”. There was a hologram in honor of Prince, and purple lights shining and flashing. Many people, have different opinions about this short tribute to Prince. Some people believed that the hologram was not appropriate but, others believe it was beautiful and honorable for the memory of Prince.

Although, this Super Bowl halftime show was loved by many, some believe it has not been the most talked about. More people seem to have spoken about the young boy, Ryan McKenna, more than Justin Timberlake’s actual performance. Of course, all respect to Justin for the performance he gave, and his effort that was put into it.
