All-Star weekend is really all about the show and not so much basketball. It's an event, a party and with it in Los Angeles, it will include the stars.

So the entertainment is important. Last year, Usher was pretty awesome and the halftime act from Alicia Keyes was solid.

This year, Lenny Kravitz will be handling pre-game duties, playing his song "Come On Get It" as the starters are announced. Josh Groban will sing the national anthem and for halftime, Rihanna will perform.

But that's not all!

Keri Hilson will sing the anthem on Saturday night before the skill competitions, Cee Lo Green will perform "Forget You" between events and before the slam dunk contest, Far East Movement will perform "Rockateer."

Finally, Friday night, Cali Swag District will perform "Teach Me How To Dougie" before the Rookie/Sophomore game. Of course John Wall is playing in that game, so I'm sure that will be a fun combination.
