Chicago Tribune Music Critic Greg Kot explains why he didn’t particularly like Justin Timberlake’s halftime performance at Super Bowl LII. It involves the projection of Prince, a production element the late Prince himself expressed a distaste for. But, it also involves a living,  element Timberlake did not bring to stage.
