Chris Brown, Pitbull + More Hit the NBA All-Star Halftime Stage
Just a couple of weeks after making a much buzzed-about appearance at the Grammy Awards, Chris Brown picked up another high-profile gig over the weekend, performing at the NBA All-Star Game with Pitbull.
It was a music-filled night, with Nicki Minaj and Mary J. Blige warming up the crowd with a pregame performance and Pitbull leading things off for the halftime show. After performing his solo tracks ‘I Know You Want Me,’ ‘Crazy,’ and ‘Rain Over Me,’ Pitbull invited Brown to the stage, and the duo delivered a duet performance of their hit ‘International Love.’ After the closing strains of ‘International Love,’ Pitbull left Brown to perform a pair of solo numbers with ‘Turn Up the Music’ and ‘Give Me Everything.’
But that wasn’t the end of the game’s star-studded halftime show: Once Brown wrapped up his set, Ne-Yo took the stage with Pitbull and Nayer to deliver the closing number. All things considered, it was a spectacle worthy of one of the most memorable All-Star Games in recent memory — a tight contest that ended in a 152-149 victory for the West and a record-breaking performance by Kobe Bryant, who vaulted past Michael Jordan on the contest’s all-time scoring list.
