A huge assortment of household names are descending upon Chicago for 2020’s NBA All-Star Game, elevating the event with special performances. Everything from the national anthem to the halftime show is poised to draw as much attention as the actual game itself.

Even before the game begins on Sunday, All-Star Saturday Night is drawing a variety of big names. Queen Latifah and Chicago youth will perform Stevie Wonder’s “Love’s in Need of Love Today,” then Lil Wayne and Jeremih will accompany Damian “Dame D.O.L.L.A.” Lillard as a prelude to the AT&T Slam Dunk. This is only a taste of the events to come, naturally.

The day of the game, Jennifer Hudson will be the first onstage, performing a special tribute to Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna and their seven friends who tragically passed in late January. Next, Common will speak on the impact of basketball on his life and the city of Chiacgo, before Chaka Khan sings the USA’s national anthem (joined by Tenille Arts, performing the Canadian national anthem). Finally, the halftime show will unite Chance The Rapper, DJ Khaled, Quavo and Wayne, teaming up to tear through their respective hits.

Watch the NBA All-Star Game live on February 16 to behold the entire slate of performances.

Meanwhile, StockX is partnering with RIMOWA and RSVP Gallery to commemorate the weekend.
