American pop singer Ariana Grande will headline the halftime show at next month's NBA All-Star Game, the league announced Thursday.
The game will be played Feb. 15 at New York’s Madison Square Garden.
The 21-year-old singer broke out in 2014 with her second album, “My Everything,” which hit the top of the U.S. charts and has sold more than 1 million copies.
She is up for two awards at next month’s 57th annual Grammy Awards, including best pop vocal album. She will also perform at the Feb. 8 awards show.
Grande is also an actress, having starred in the Nickelodeon sitcom “Victorious,” from 2010 to 2013. She will have a recurring role in the forthcoming FOX series "Scream Queens."
Last year's halftime show in New Orleans featured several local jazz artists.
The All-Star Game will air on TNT.
