Christina Aguilera is Rocketting to the (all) stars…
The 34-year-old half-Ecuadorian American singer will kick off this year’s NBA All-Star Game with a special performance alongside the Rockettes.
It’s all part of the Entertainment Series presented by JBL on Sunday, February 15.
Aguilera and popular dance troupe will team up for the opening, New York-inspired performance when the All-Star Game, which will air live at 8:00 pm ET on TNT, kicks off from Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The Rockettes are an iconic New York City entertainment staple; and Aguilera was born in Staten Island before becoming a Grammy-winning artist and coach on NBC’s The Voice.
Aguilera’s performance with the Rockettes will lead directly into the All-Star Game player introductions.
Aguilera is the second announced 2015 NBA All-Star performer, after Ariana Grande was revealed to be this year’s halftime performer last week.
Since the release of 2012’s Lotus, Aguilera has scored hits with collaborations, including “Feel This Moment” with Pitbull and “Say Something” with A Great Big World, while hinting at a new studio album.
Next month, Aguilera will return to The Voice for the show’s eighth season, after taking two seasons off from the reality singing competition.
