After setting the bar impossibly low last year, the NBA improved its headliner for this year’s All-Star halftime show.

NBA release:

The National Basketball Association (NBA) announced today that 10-time Grammy® Award-winning recording artist John Legend will headline the 66th NBA All-Star Game halftime show on Sunday, Feb. 19 at Smoothie King Center in New Orleans.

Legend is fine, but I’m going to quibble. The game is in New Orleans. The league should have gotten someone from that city’s incredible musical legacy.
