The NBA Finals are only a few months away, but the All-Star game is this Sunday. If you love music as much as basketball, then you’re in luck. Former American Idol winner Jordin Sparks will sing the National Anthem; John Legend and Latin Grammy winner Juanes will perform an extended version of Legend’s hit song “If You’re Out There” during the halftime show; and Chris Brown was scheduled to team up with former NBA All-Star Shaquille O’Neal and the winners of MTV’s America’s Next Dance Crew, JabbaWockeeZ, to introduce the teams during the pre-game festivities before his highly publicized arrest on Sunday, but chances are he will be a no-show.

Before the actual game, High School Musical star Corbin Bleu, will perform at halftime at the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge & Youth Jam at the US Airways Center on Friday and singer/guitarist Kevin Rudolf will perform his chart-topping single “Let It Rock” at the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday.
