Apart from its geographic location, Justin Timberlake's Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday had a real Minnesota connection.
Several students from around the metro took part in the performance.
The Academy of Holy Angels high school Dance Team in Richfield was one of many schools asked to be in the show.
"I keep saying it was an incredible experience," dance team member Jaila Robinson said.
The University of Minnesota Marching Band also backed up Timberlake on national television.
"It felt like two seconds," marching band member Emily Daniel said. "One moment we were walking out onto the field and then all of a sudden we were performing, and then it was the finale and suddenly I'm running back up the tunnel."
Performers, who rehearsed the show for two weeks, had to sign confidentiality agreements that they wouldn't say anything about the show ahead of time.
