This year's NBA All-Star Game is living up to its name on and off the court, with some of the biggest names in music turning out to perform before the big event.
Rapper Ne-Yo is set to sing the U.S. national anthem while Nelly Furtado will perform the Canadian national anthem prior to the start of the 65th NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, Feb. 14, at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
But the entertainment kicks off the night before, where Walk the Moon will perform their new single, "Work This Body," as well as their massive hit "Shut Up and Dance," during the State Farm All-Star Saturday Night.
Cirque du Soleil will captivate audiences before the game, with an intricate performance meant to illustrate "the story of a basketball dream." Meanwhile, 16-time GRAMMY winner Sting will rock the halftime show.
