Ariana Grande to Perform at NBA All-Star Game Halftime Show
Ariana Grande will continue a stellar year when she headlines the NBA All-Star Game halftime show during the Entertainment Series presented by JBL on Sunday, Feb. 15. Grande will take the stage live from New York City's Madison Square Garden at halftime of the game, which will air live at 8:00 pm ET on TNT.
Grande's halftime performance will occur one week after the pop singer takes the stage at the Grammys for the first time on Feb. 8. Grande is nominated for best pop duo/group performance for "Bang Bang" (with Jessie J and Nicki Minaj), as well as best pop vocal album for sophomore LP My Everything, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart last September.
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 pre game introductions and the State Farm All-Star Saturday Night, are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
