Watch Prince's Super Bowl halftime performance (most of it, anyway)

It's called one of the greatest of all time.

The NFL is remembering "one of the greatest Super Bowl halftime performances of all time."

That would be Minnesota's own Prince.

The league posted a 7-minute mini documentary about the 2007 show on Facebook this week. You can watch it here. (Sorry, we can't embed it.)

Others are paying tribute to Prince's performance in the pouring rain. His keyboardist Morris Hayes recently spoke to Billboard about the Purple One's "dazzling" performance, and you can read that story here.

And Yahoo Music named Prince the best halftime performer ever.

Super Bowl LI is in Houston on Sunday, and Lady Gaga will do the halftime show. Houston was also home to the Super Bowl halftime with Janet Jackson's infamous wardrobe malfunction in 2004.
