John Legend brought his A-game when he sang the national anthem before Game 1 of the 2016 NBA Finals.

The Oscar, Golden Globe and 10-time Grammy winner took center court at Oracle Arena in Oakland as the defending champion Golden State Warriors began their championship battle with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Warriors, led by two-time MVP Stephen Curry, prevailed over Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals, which went to a deciding seventh contest (and is now recognized as TNT's most-watched program ever). They’re coming off the all-time regular season record of 73 wins and nine losses.

Watch Legend’s performance below.
