Justin Timberlake explains his Prince tribute during the halftime show

We all know that Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake have somewhat of a bromance going on so it was only appropriate that his show was his first post-Superbowl stop.
The halftime show as a whole has gotten very mixed reviews (well, not according to Jimmy), but it’s his Prince dedication that has come under the most scrutiny.
When asked about it on the show, this was his response:
It’s a moment for me if I’m being quite honest because he’s always been the pinnacle of musicianship for me. And when we decided that the serendipity and the synergy that would be in Minneapolis, and that he’s such a special thing here aside from what he is all over the world, I just felt like I wanted to do something for this city and something for him that would just be the ultimate homage to what I consider the G.O.A.T. of musicians.
Good answer I suppose, but you can tell he’s nervous.
