Fall out boy, alicia keys hit the court for nba all-star weekend
Houston is about to get a little more star power as some of music’s biggest names hit up 2013 NBA All-Star Weekend next week.
Over the course of two days, everyone from the recently reunited Fall Out Boy and Ellie Goulding to Alicia Keys will perform during the All-Star Game “Entertainment Series presented by Sean John at Macy’s.” On Saturday, February 16, one day before the big game, Nick Cannon will host State Farm All-Star Saturday Night, which will include the skills challenge, three-point contest and slam-dunk contest. Goulding (who is set to perform her breakout single “Lights”), Phillip Phillips (playing the ubiquitous “Home”) and FOB will provide the soundtrack. It will all take place 7 p.m. ET Saturday on TNT.
This will mark the first live TV performance for Fall Out Boy since they announced their reunion Monday. They will perform their brand-new single “My Songs Know What You Did in the Day (Light Em Up).” The track is the first single from the band’s first new album in five years, Save Rock and Roll, due May 7. The guys recently enlisted rapper 2 Chainz to appear in a video for the track.
On Sunday, February 17, when the Western Conference All-Stars (led by Los Angeles Clippers player Chris Paul) and the Eastern Conference All-Stars (led by Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade) finally face off during the 62nd annual NBA All-Star Game, John Legend will perform the national anthem and Ne-Yo will be on hand to perform a selection of his tunes during the player introductions.
Keys, who just performed the national anthem at the Super Bowl last weekend, will take the stage during halftime. The singer will perform a medley of her hits, new and old. The game is set to air at 8 p.m. ET Sunday on TNT.
