Ludacris and B.o.B. are ready to bring hip-hop to the court with performances at this year’s NBA All-Star pregame concert. The rappers, along with headliner Ke$ha, have been enlisted to help tip off the 62nd NBA All-Star Game in Houston on February 17.
Luda and Bobby Ray join a slew of heavyhitters who will perform during the actual game as well. After her recent Grammy performance, Alicia Keys will serve as the game’s main act. If recent shows have been any indication, the songstress will likely come out with “Girl On Fire.”
There will be additional performances from Ne-Yo, “American Idol” winner Phillips Phillips and multiple Grammy winner John Legend who will be singing the National Anthem. Fall Out Boy is also on the line-up for the All-Star Game, appearing together for the first time since their break up in 2009. The group plans on reintroducing themselves on stage with their newest single “My Songs Know What You Did In The Day (Light Em Up)”.
The All-Star Game will air live Sunday, February 17 at 8pm ET on TNT. The pregame will commence at 6pm ET.
