Not very subtle, Orlando.
The performers for a pre-NBA All-Star Game concert were leaked by the New York Daily News — later confirmed by the league — and we learn that one is Gym Class Heroes, who along with Neon Hitch will do their single “Get you’re a** back home.”
This message is directed at you, Dwight Howard. (Maybe not intentionally, but then again….)
The other headliner is J. Cole, who was just nominated for a Grammy for Best New Artist, and he was the first guy signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label. Pentatonix and Kayla Brianna also will perform before tipoff of the All-Star game. Also, Kenny Smith’s daughter Brianna — you’ve seen her on TNT’s Inside the NBA getting hyped — will perform.
After the Grammys, I’m just glad it’s not Nicki Minaj.
No word on who the halftime headliner is. Yet.
