Justin Timberlake’s halftime show at the Super Bowl will reportedly feature a Prince hologram

Fans aren't having it.

Justin Timberlake is busy preparing for his Super Bowl halftime show, which is set to take place tomorrow (Feb 4).

While he celebrated the release of his new album, Man of the Woods, of which he hosted a listening party at Prince's iconic Paisley Park compound, the singer is reportedly paying homage to the Purple One in a different way for his highly publicized and anticipated performance.

Per TMZ, JT's halftime show will feature a hologram of Prince.

Fans, naturally, are taking the rumor at face value, taking to Twitter to react to how this move could likely go horribly awry, with some pointing out that Prince wasn't even a fan of the former boy band singer and that Timberlake has taken disrespectful shots at the late legend in the past. Some are even calling for the halftime producers to step in and intervene prior to imminent disaster striking.

Take a look at a sneak peak of Justin Timberlake rehearsing for his big day, as well as see some reactions to the report that he may be joined by a Prince hologram, below.
