Nelly Furtado & Ne-Yo singing at NBA All-Star Game

NBA All-Star Weekend is going to be a star-studded affair, and for celeb-hungry Torontonians it just got a little bit sweeter.

It's just been announced that Nelly Furtado and Ne-Yo will be performing the national anthems of the Canada and U.S. (respectively) at the big game on Sunday. Unfortunately, there's no word that they'll be singing Promiscuous or So Sick (but we can always hope it happens).

If that's not enough to make you to envy the people who managed to snag tickets, remember that Cirque du Soleil is opening the event and Sting will be belting out his hits at the half-time show.

In other celeb-related news, Walk the Moon will be performing at the State Farm All-Star Saturday Night.
