Ariana Grande has been confirmed as the halftime performer at this year’s NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, February 15 in New York’s Madison Square Garden. The game always features fan favorite basketball players from both the Western and Eastern Conference, and so far Lebron James and Stephen Curry are competing to represent their conferences. The 21-year-old singer is expected to perform hits like “Love Me Harder”, “Break Free” and “Problem. Grande is no stranger to TV performances as she’s done several in the past year like The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, the American Music Awards, A Very Grammy Christmas, and the CMA’s amongst others. In the past, singers like Mariah Carey and Beyoncé have taken on the task of entertaining basketball fans during the halftime show.

The singer is not a stranger to sports events either; she sang the National Anthem at the NFL Kickoff Game last year, and killed it. It looks like it’s going to be a super busy month of February for Grande since she is set to perform at this year’s Grammys, and after the All-Star Game she will take off on her extensive tour on February 25, which is starting in Independence, Missouri.

We’re thinking it would be amazing if Nicky Minaj and Jessie J showed up and surprised everyone with a rendition of their hit single (and most nominated song at the Grammys) “Bang, Bang.” Just a thought.
