Los Angeles: Pop star Christina Aguilera is another star heading to the NBA All-Star Game.
The NBA announced that the pop diva would kick off the game with a special performance during the "Entertainment Series, presented by JBL" on February 15 at Madison Square Garden, reported Ace Showbiz.
She will be joined by legendary New York City dance troupe the Rockettes during her set. According to the NBA, the former Disney princess will "take center stage for a New York-themed medley" while the Rockettes "will dazzle the crowd with eye-high kicks and precision choreography."
Aguilera is the second star announced to perform at the NBA All-Star Game. Last week, the NBA revealed that Ariana Grande would headline the halftime show.
