With the 2015 NBA All-Star Game coming up in just a few weeks, NBA has recently been releasing announcements on who will grace the performances this year. After announcing Ariana Grande’s halftime performance, it has been revealed that Christina Aguilera will be performing for the game as well.
On Tuesday, Jan. 27, 2015, NBA released a statement on their official website, announcing that Aguilera will be joining this year’s NBA All-Star Entertainment Series with a musical performance in the pregame introductions to be held on Sunday, Feb. 15, 2015, at the Madison Square Garden. Joining Aguilera in her New York-themed opening performance will be the New York City dance troupe, the Rockettes.
Aguilera is obviously more than thrilled to be performing in the opening of the game, as seen through her tweet.
