Other performances on the night came from Beck, Common, Earth, Wind & Fire, Mavis Staples, St. Vincent and John Legend.
Dave Grohl has recently recalled how it felt to hear Prince was set to cover Foo Fighters song Times Like These at the Super Bowl.
The My Hero rocker admitted that he actually didn't watch the live performance of Prince's iconic halftime show in 2007, as he refused to believe it would happen.
In fact, it wasn't until a random stranger approached him in the street to confirm it had taken place that Dave ran to his computer to watch it.
"I was stunned," he recalled in his Dave's True Stories series. "In shock. Flooded with emotion. As my tears hit the keyboard like the Miami rain that night, I realized this was without a doubt my proudest musical achievement."
