NEW YORK (AP) — Before he sings at the Oscars, Pharrell Williams will perform at the NBA All-Star Game.

The NBA announced that the producer-rapper-singer will perform Feb. 16 at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. Williams will open the game and perform during the player introductions with surprise guests.

The game’s halftime performance will feature Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Earth, Wind and Fire, Janelle Monae and Dr. John.

Recent Grammy winner Gary Clark Jr. will sing the national anthem and also perform during the halftime show. Folk-rock singer Serena Ryder will sing the Canadian national anthem.

The All-Star game will air live on TNT.

Kendrick Lamar will perform before the slam dunk contest a day before the big game.
