Well, we already knew about Nicki Minaj playing at the halftime show, and we probably could’ve guessed that Pitbull was gonna show up as well, him being in all those TNT commercials and all. Now, we have the full lineup for All-Star Weekend—or, as we like to call it, The Most Wonderfulest Weekend of the Year. Joining Pitbull at halftime to play “Give Me Everything” will be Ne-Yo—no word if Nayer awas invited yet, but maybe they’ll just grab one of the Magic cheerleaders off the bench to sing instead, and J. Cole and Gym Class Heroes will be will be playing before the game. In addition, Flo Rida and will.i.am will be showing up during Saturday’s festivities to play “Good Feeling” and “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)” respectively (though wouldn’t it be funnier if it was the other way around?) and Mary J. Blige will sing the National Anthem.
Meanwhile, we now also know what Nicki Minaj will be playing during her set—a medley of hits, including “Super Bass” and new single “Starships.” Will this be a passing of the torch from one Nicki megahit to another? Will there be a priest involved for some reason? Will Minaj be wearing a Jeremy Lin jersey during her performance? Don’t you dare be flipping over to the Oscars during her Minajesty’s performance.
