Christina Aguilera to Perform Player Introductions at NBA All-Star Game
Christina Aguilera is the latest powerhouse singer set to perform at the NBA All-Star Game on Feb. 15.
The pop musician will pick up her mic ahead of the match, held at Madison Square Garden in New York City and airing live at 8 p.m. ET on TNT, to take on a "New York-themed medley" during player introductions, the NBA announced Tuesday. She will also be joined by The Rockettes.
Aguilera's performance comes just before her return to The Voice after rotating out for two seasons. Ariana Grande will perform during the halftime show.
Last year's NBA All-Star Game halftime show was a tribute to its host city of New Orleans, with a performance by Janelle Monae, Trombone Shorty, Earth Wind & Fire, Gary Clark Jr. and Dr. John. Pharrell Williams performed during the pregame introductions last year.
More NBA All-Star performers, including the artists scheduled to play this year's State Farm All-Star Saturday Night, are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
