NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Ariana Grande isn’t the only big-voiced singer performing at the NBA All-Star Game: Christina Aguilera has been added to the lineup.

The NBA announced Tuesday that the Staten Island native will perform ahead of the 64th annual game on Feb. 15 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. She will sing a “New York-themed medley” during player introductions and be joined by dance troupe The Rockettes.

Grammy-winning Aguilera’s hits include “Genie in a Bottle,” ”Beautiful,” ”Ain’t No Other Man” and “Say Something” with A Great Big World. Next month she will return as a mentor on NBC’s “The Voice” after a two-season break.

The All-Star game will air live on TNT. Grande will perform during the halftime show.
